Just thought I’d throw this one out there, because I caught myself pondering this question a few minutes ago.
Everybody says ‘You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone.’ I’m wondering whether that is actually not true for those of us who’ve experienced this kind of relationship, and this kind of loss. Owing to the nature of our relationships with online friends, we may never have the chance to meet them. (Those of us who do are very lucky. I never had the pleasure of meeting Chris or Kim, but I met an online friend who lives in Germany last summer. Was pretty awesome.)
Does that mean that we recognise the importance of these relationships more, and that’s why we nurture them to the point that they become so significant for us? I’d be interested to read what you think on the matter. Are the relationships with those we don’t know in person somehow deeper for that? (I recognise that this probably should have been an earlier post, but the thought has just occurred to me.)
Please leave feedback and let me know what you think.
Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
