Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? It is often not a good thing for people to move to a new town or country because they lose their old friends. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Some people think it is not a good idea to move from one city because of losing old friends. However,in my opinion, it is a good idea for people to move to a new town or country. I feel this way for two reasons which I will explore in what follows. To begin with, there are more job opportunities in big cities and more facilities compared to little towns that people can take advantage of them ,and they should not limit themselves to living in a city just because of their old friends. In other words, we can make new friends in a new city or country and challenge ourselves and our social skills by finding and making new friends in a new place.For instance, my aunt left her city and went to a bigger city because of her job; At first, she regretted it because she was alone and she did not have friends but after a few months she made friends with some of her coworkers and she really has close relationships with her friends. Her friends are like her family members and helped her in difficult situations like when she was sick or in debt. Moreover, we can continue our relationships with our old friends no matter how far we are from them. To state it more clearly, there are various ways to have relationships with old friends, such as inviting them to our city, traveling to the city we lived before and more specifically, we can use technology like social media to chat with them and send them pictures and videos from our lives. My personal experience is a great example of this when I moved to Tehran from my hometown,Urmia, I tried to continue my relationships with my old friends by sending messages to them, having video chats with them, their gifts by using post mail on their birthday. So there are still my friends and whenever I am in trouble, I call them for their advice. To conclude, It is a good thing to live in one city to prevent losing old friends. This is because people can make new friends in other places too. Also,they can continue their relationships with their old friends by chatting with them or visiting them.
