True Story: "My Best Friend Moved to Australia"

By Amelia @ Into my Imagination

Hi! My name is Amelia and I’m over on Into my Imagination. I am really excited to be writing this section for Chit Chat and I hope you enjoy my post!


 Nearly 2 years ago, my best friend immigrated to Australia with her family. I have been friends with her for 10 years and we did everything together. I honestly couldn’t believe it when I found out the date they were going. I just thought that it would never happen. I guess all good things come to an end. We both cried so much the night before she left. I was used to her being just around the corner but now she’s around the other side of the world, thousands of miles away from England (where I live). I still feel a sinking feeling whenever I think about it now.

Once she was over there, we used to Skype every weekend and send each other letters and gifts over in the post – often both resulting in tears for both of us. We stopped sending letters after a while as it was actually quite expensive. We could still Skype but even that became more infrequent. I honestly thought we were going to lose contact as it was just so hard being close when you can’t physically see each other. I thought I’d never see her again until one day she told me that they were coming over for 5 weeks! I haven’t seen her for nearly 2 years so you can imagine how excited I was! They are coming in December and I am so so excited and we’ve already planned so much!

You just have to think that things can only get better. There’s no point in just being upset all the time and feeling sorry for yourself; you have to make changes too. The main message I have is that you can’t split up true friends: you will always find a way to be together.
