[Long Distance Friendship]

Do you have a long-distance friend?

 

If you are or were an exchange or international student, you will know how tough it can be, having a dear friend that you don’t see for months – some even for years.

 

You can go on months without meeting or speaking to these people. However, you know you will always have a heart-felt connection to them, as they are one of the most important people in your life.

 

It is never awkward when they suddenly message you or call to chat. You always update them when anything important happens. You are used to spending a lot of time on the phone texting and skyping them. You love to reminisce together, pulling out old photos or inside jokes that only you guys knew about. You love to plan future visits to each other’s place, and the best part? Knowing that you will always have a place to stay.

 

Having a long-distance friend can sometimes be hard and difficult. However, no matter if you are 3,000, 4,000 or 5,000 miles away, you know that they will always have your back, and that you have a friend forever.

 

“True friends never apart. Maybe in distance but never in heart.”

~Helen Keller

你是否也有一個朋友,和你之間隔著很遠的距離?

 

如果你現在或曾經是一名交換生或是國際生,你一定有所感觸,知道和好朋友幾月甚至幾年不見是一件多麼痛苦的事情。

 

或許你和他們已經幾個月不見面不說話,但是你知道你們就像在彼此身邊一樣,因為這些朋友是生命中最重要的一群人。

 

若是他們突然發訊息給你或是打電話和你聊天,你從來不會覺得尷尬或不妥當。當你有什麼重要的消息,你會第一時間告訴他們。你也習慣了花很多時間和他們發信息或是視頻。你們喜歡一起回憶往事,翻出舊時的照片或是講一些只有你們之間會懂的笑話。你們計劃到彼此所在的地區旅行,而最讓人幸福的是你知道他/她總會為你留出一個位置。

 

或許有時維持長距離的友情是一件困難的事情。但是不管你們之間相隔三千、四千抑或是五千英里,你知道這群人永遠都是你的朋友,一直在身後默默支持你。

 

真正的朋友即使在空間上相隔了一定距離,在心中也永不分開。
