I met my best friend through a mutual friend in eighth grade. We became really close, and throughout high school we were each others emotional support. We tried to do everything we could together and spent all of our free time at school together.
When it came to choosing colleges, we never really talked to each other where we were going to go. I went to Missouri and she moved to Florida. It was hard to say goodbye of course, and that first summer apart was hard.
We talk all the time, either over text or Skype. It is the fast that we keep in almost constant contact that we are still such good friends. We still go to each other to talk about our problems, and the good things that happen in out lives.
That’s how I know that our friendship will last, even though we are so far away, we are still the first person that we go to.
We have seen each other 3 times over the two years, and counting, of living in different states. When we are together, it’s like nothing has changed, no time has passed. We still enjoy each other’s company. It is hard to be apart, to see each other making new friends, moving on in life without the other, but we will always be there for each other, and that is what matters.
It is because we refuse to let go that we are so close. Don’t let go of something that is of value, and it will always be there.
