GAGers, send your friend (s) a text!


I am a first-year college student right now, and quarantine is beating me up. I have a small friend group of about 4 people. I am feeling really lonely right now and I am always the one to reach to my friends. I did an experiment: I stopped texting/initiating contact with them to see how long it would take them to contact me. It has been 2 weeks now, and not a single one of them has contacted me.

Maybe they aren’t the type to text or call? Maybe they are super busy? Maybe they have other priorities? Why are they not contacting me? I asked myself these questions. The simple truth is they aren’t very good friends. They are constantly posting, on TikTok, Instagram, etc..., active on social media. Right now, I wish one of them would reach out to me. I need them to care about me.

You may have a long-lost friend that is at home struggling right now. They may be in my position: trying to stay afloat depression, anxiety, financial struggles, etc... They may be lonely.

Reach out to your friend! Even if it just a text saying “hey”, to some people, that would mean the world during these harsh times. Even if you haven’t talked to them for weeks, months, or even years, reach out to them and let them know that you care for them. It really does make a difference.
