Removal is a stressful experience and no matter how busy you are, it will get even more stressful. This is because you will need to tell your friends about your removal. It will be very hard to say goodbye and your heart will be aching. It will make both of you sad especially if you have been friends for many years, but it is something that has to be done.
It is time to act like a grown-up and control your emotions. Your removal is not the end of your friendship even though you are probably moving long distance. However, breaking the news and saying goodbye is not easy. But, putting off breaking the news is not good because the longer you wait, the harder it will be. And if they find out the last, they will feel betrayed because they think you trust them and appreciate them more. They don’t want to be the last people to find out the big news.
Use face-to-face method
One of the hardest tasks during your removal is informing the people you love about your removal. Breaking the news can be done via social media but only with friends that are not too close to you. But telling your best friends in person is the best way to inform them about your move. You might want to hug them and you can only do that if you share the news in person.
Focus on positive things
When delivering the big news, you need to be aware of the fact that this will be hard for them too. But, since you will be caught up in all the fuss related to your removal and you feel stressed because so many tasks are ahead of you, you might not feel in a good mood. But, after you decide to inform them about your removal, you will need to be more positive and use the right tone when talking to them.
Even though you feel stressed out, you are also excited about your removal, whether it is for love, college, job or other reason. Make sure you show that that side of your move. It will be easier for them to adjust to the news after they realize that move is inevitable and you will be happy at your new place in your new home.
Throw a party
One of the best ways to say goodbye to your friends is to throw a party and create memories you will cherish forever. Having a party is a great opportunity to see your friends and family members and spend some quality time with them. The party doesn’t have to be a fancy one since you are in the middle of removal and you have so many things on your mind.
Get them simple but thoughtful gifts
This is the right time to do something nice for the people you love. You need to find time and buy or make gifts that will show you are thoughtful and that you care. Think about what they like and if you can find any gift that will mark your friendship. You can also write a gift card for each friend. They will appreciate it.
