Having a best friend is literally the best thing in life! There is nothing more special than being able to share the highs and lows of your life with someone you truly care about and treasure. You just can’t imagine life without them. But then one day, they move to a different state or city or country for crying out loud! And that’s always tough. But you have to learn to cope with it.

Long distance SUCKS! Especially when it’s between two best friends!

Here’s what happens when you have a long distance best friend:
