Dear Youth Ambassadors,

Tell me, how do you get over the fact that your close friend – that you counted as one of your sisters – is gone and you will never be able to see her again? Please tell me, what should I do?

Sincerely,
Missing Her

Dear Missing Her,

Hey, I’m so sorry for the loss of your close friend/sister. I honestly don’t know the feeling of that. I have lost some people that were kind of close to me, but not real close. I feel like if they were closer to me then it would’ve been a really bad feeling. I just can’t imagine losing my sister or close friend. If we had memories together, then it’s really going to tear me up. The best advice I could give you is to do what she would want you to do. Would she want you sitting here crying? Just keep your head up and pray for better days.

Sincerely,
I feel for you

Dear Missing Her,

I honestly don’t get if you’re trying to say they passed away or they have gone somewhere like moved to another state. But if they passed, you should think positive, never negative. Try to hang with people that make you happy and always know your close friend will be with you no matter what. If they moved or something, you still have FaceTime, Skype, Facebook, etc. Keep in contact. You won’t be able to see them again, but you’ll know they’re safe if you video call them now and then. I hope this worked for you.

Sincerely,
A fellow teen

Dear Missing Her,

Think about all the good times ya’ll had together. Just know she is in a better place but you have to keep your head up. You will lose someone close to you, but it’s about keeping your head up. There are many people probably going through the same thing. She will be missed dearly, but know that people care about you too.

Sincerely,
Encouraging Friend
