We live in a world where we have social media friends, the we have close friends. Social media has allowed me to get in touch with people I may never meet face-to-face. My life is richer for those friendships. Yet, they cannot take the place of friendships within a community.
One of the hard things about moving to a new place is restarting with new friendships. I am thankful social media allows me to keep in touch with friends and family at my old home. Yet I’ve learned It is so vital to develop new friendships and keep involved in a community.
So enjoy your social media friends. But be sure to make some face-to-face connections on a daily basis.
