Hey guys my name is Ruby and welcome back to my channel I’ve been having something that’s been on my mind lately that I really want to talk to you guys about and that is the importance of deep and meaningful friendships let me explain I have to admit moving across

The world to live with the love of my life in one of the most beautiful places on Earth Bali surrounded by Lush jungles and beaches is literally Paradise what more could a girl ask for right and as many of you guys know I moved all the

Way from LA to Bali in the last few years and of course this comes with the price the price of leaving my loved ones back at home my family my friends my comfort zone my job but of course all for something really amazing while I am grateful to be living in Paradise with

My partner I can’t help but feel lonely sometimes I mean b can be a really transient place I’ve made so many friends and then they move within the next 3 to 6 months so honestly I’ve been feeling so alone in paradise and because Bal so transient it can be hard to form

Rich deep meaningful connections with people when they’re only here for a short while it gets kind of exhausting honestly and of course I am a digital Nomad but often this industry can make you feel really lonely your crunching your desire to discover the unknown beautiful places but at the cost of

Being isolated in Paradise you can’t always bring your loved ones with you and I know that I’m not the only one feeling this way many of us are actually struggling to keep and maintain friendships and that’s because we are prioritizing work and business and so many other things and not prioritizing

The people who have been with us through thick and thin and you know what I think it’s time to start doing that again I made the exciting decision to meet my best friend Pauline all the way in the Philippines she actually lives all the

Way in Sweden and I live in Bali and we decided to do a really fun Philippines trip it’s been months since we’ve seen each other in person but know the time and effort we’re putting into seeing each other will be very well worth it so get ready to meet Pauline my best friend
