Media narrows the geographical distance

I have always been living in an international environment. My friends come from all over the world and I myself am 8000 kilometers away from home. It brings me numerous interesting experiences and precious knowledge that I would never be able to get If I only stay in my comfort zone. However, it also means that most of the time, my loved ones are in another country, or even another continent. That’s why media is the only way to communicate and  narrow our distance. Whenever I need to talk to someone, I can easily call my friends and family via Skype or text them via Facebook Messenger. In that way, I feel like they are stand with me and I am still a part of their lives. I cannot imagine my life without media, because for me it is not only an effective communication tool, but also a psychological crutch.
