    Maybe that's why we haven't said it.

    .. I won't say it, I'll never say it. I can't see my life without you... Idk how to do this.

    Especially if they are unexpected

    but sometimes they are necessary. When you have reached a point where things are stagnant and there's no growth it's the only option if you wish to be happy because you're current situation is holding you back. I like the quote "we must let go of the life we planned to accept...

    Why do they leave, why do they always leave?

    ! It may be easier from now on to not let people in, I should know by now seeing as it happens so often. I always care and love too much, maybe it's being naive to think that the person actually cares about me...I don't know what's wrong with me, something must be wrong with me...

    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...

    I never liked him as a person.

    . A tall, good looking guy, aged 35 or more.. Always trying to make things complicated for others.. Not much of educated either.. but here most shopkeepers at grocery stores are not really educated. But he wasn't rude to me or anything.. so there wasn't any strong reason to not...

    Stroke after stoke, surgery

    I don't like "Goodbyes"

    because it feels like I will never see that person again. I don't like to say goodbyes because the last time I said goodbye by cousin died of a rare cancer. I could go on and on.

    People these days I sometimes wonder

    why people think others control their happiness? Destroy long term marriages because they are to chicken to ask for help making the one they are in better.

    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...

    Goodbyes can be the best

    or worst thing in the world. It can bring pain or joy. Joy when someone you hate talking to finally decides to end the conversation. Pain when you have to say bye to a chapter in your life that you didn't want to end.

    the worst goodbyes are the ones

    that are never said, and never explained. The person just vanishes for no reason and you never hear from them again, and that hurts, it really hurts, especially if you considered the person a close friend...

    My partner of 7 years passed away in 2010 due

    to diabetes complications. In the summer of 2007 her best friend who moved cross country to live with us passed away when he had a seizure and no one was there to help him roll out of his pillow. I have had a lot of losses. I miss a lot. 2 days after Christmas of 2013 my best...

    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...

    Saying goodbye hurts.

    . and at times I can feel the depression kicking in. Though, it depends on the situation, but goodbyes are terrible. I prefer to say see you later.

    but sometimes in life there is nothing we can

    do. people drift apart... people pass away... people can simply move on due to there feelings and circumstances changing... Most final farewells are never easy and only reinstate and remind you that nothing is forever.... even memories can fade... faces that once seemed so...

    Goodbyes are not always painful,

    but it definitely gives you a memory lane... Goodbyes are good as well with a hope to see somebody soon again. So i am a little confused about goodbyes, but yes I dont like goodbyes.

    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.
