    Saying good bye hurts,

    but not having the opportunity of that closure can hurt even more

    It's crazy how you can talk to someone

    for a really long time and you become so close. You tell them your secrets, dreams, and beliefs. You get so attached to them and it becomes apart of your routine to talk to them. Then one day something happens and it's all gone. Just like that you're strangers again.

    Three weeks ago, I had to end it.

    I broke up with my boyfriend of five months. That last kiss still haunts me.

    This is one of the saddest quotes I've seen.

    It's better if you know the context it's in too.

    I am considering leaving EP.

    No one seems to care about me anymore so I guess my purpose is no more. I joined back in September of 2013. I met a girl who then abandoned me. Stupid ***** to her I say(you know who you are). I met another girl whom I kept. Then I met another who made the worst mistake ever...

    I never got a chance to say goodbye to my

    grandma before she passed away on mother's day this past year. I remember sitting there in the hospital waiting room, waiting to go and meet her in her final moments before she moved on. I was so close, so close to saying goodbye, but I was too late. She died while I sat in the...

    So long for now, only a few more days

    and I'm off to do. I'll truly only will miss a few. Every now and then a new perspective is needed. Boredom is what now has weeded. I'm escaping while I can. So no questions about why I ran.

    Today was harder than I could ever imagine.

    After he told me it was over, I couldn't even look at him. I couldn't even breathe. I couldn't say goodbye to him. I didn't say a word. I just took my cat and left. Because in my mind, actually saying goodbye makes it final. And though I know it's really over, I still have that...

    It's an awful feeling to let go of someone in

    those last moments of being with one another. Two souls that part ways and journey in separate directions. They'll get by this time and the next. My Native ancestors never had a word for 'goodbye' because they had a much different world view than Europeans. The concept of...

    So I asked him, "Are you leaving,

    for good?" then he told me, "Yes, I wish you a good life." From that moment I lost a friend and a listener. I stared at him, I felt there is something slowly cutting me deep, taking me into a realization that another person in my life left me. That's why I don't say goodbyes and...

    Stroke after stoke, surgery

    A dear friend of mine died about a month ago

    and I can't stop thinking of him and grieving for him. There are support groups for people who lose children or spouses, but not friends. Any suggestions?

    My shattered heart and broken dream.

    Are mending on the shelf. I saw you holding hands, standing close to someone else. Now I sit all alone wishing all my feeling was gone.

    I did it finally. I said goodbye.

    Via text. Unfortunately I couldn't do it face to face. Nor by phone. Because I just know as soon as I see his face I would chicken out. Those beautiful blue eyes, his angry sadness. I will miss you babaliscious.

    I remember holding my moms hand

    as she was hours away from passing. My family urging me to say goodbye to let her go. I refused I will never say goodbye, instead I said Ill see you again someday. No goodbyes ever!!!!

    My sister has always been there

    for me. I knew the day of her getting married would come, but I pretended like it wouldn't. I know I'm selfish for feeling this way. Hating her and hating myself for her moving away. I think I feel this way because she's more of my mother than my biological one, and when she...

    I always hated people

    that said goodbye to me. I feel like goodbye is so permanent. Saying goodbye seem like you'll never see then again. When my girlfriend and I say bye we don't use by, say "hello" because saying hello is much easier then saying "Goodbye."

    Having someone so dear to you ,

    words can't express how much you love them and mean to you. But they're so selfish ,they'd easily hurt you with no regard to you. So it's better say goodbye loving them, than sticking around ending up hating them. Goodbye !
