The first time you ever made super vague plans to travel around the world, it was probably with your best friend, and you were probably really excited about it.
What if someone told you that it would be best to travel without your BFF, though?
- This will probably be the first time ever where you can do anything you want without wondering if your BFF would wanna do it, too.
- But you’ll also try to find all the things she would’ve loved to see (that maybe you didn’t really care for, but you make yourself do anyway), so it’s almost like letting her like vicariously through you.
- It proves to yourself that, even when she’s an ocean away, she always comes first in your heart (aww.)
- And, well, BFFs fight, so now your (probably really dumb) arguments won’t spoil anyone’s mood.
- There will never be a point where you have to take care of your drunken best friend because she decided to do tequila shots with some Australians at the pub.
- Now, you have to learn how to take care of yourself without her… Because you decided to do tequila shots with some Australians at the pub.
- You will always have a story to tell her because she won’t be there to experience it with you.
- And she’ll always have a story to tell you, like how she finally told that douchelord of hers to pack his bags (you’ll buy her an extra nice souvenir for that.)
- You’ll become better, more efficient communicators, because you can totally count on her to blow up your phone whenever you find service.
- Instead of being attached at the hip, you’re forced to try new things and make new friends on your own.
- There’s no hiding behind your BFF when that one dude from Portugal tries to flirt with you in a language that you do not understand at all.
- Suddenly, you’re both significantly more proactive when it comes to making plans with each other, because now you know that, one day, you won’t be together all the time.
- Both of you will grow as separate people for what will probably be the first time in a really long time.
- Despite how sad you might be to leave all of the beautiful places and things you’ve experienced behind, going home will never be as sad as it could’ve been if you didn’t have her to go back to.
- You’ll both be almost completely different people by the time you come back, people that you might not have become if she had come with you.
- But, no matter how different you are, it’ll always be like returning from the war to find your star-crossed lover at the terminal, waiting for you after all this time.
- Cue slow motion airport hugs.
