    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.

    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...

    In every love story, there will always be a

    Romeo and a Juliet. Happily Ever Afters. Battles. And fighting for a loved one. It's been written in book for years, decades, eons. Some always end up happy. The happy couple roaming into the city while staring at each other lustfully. It's beautiful to see. The passion...

    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.

    As much as I hate goodbyes,

    5 years, 3 cheats (christmas, new year's & our anniversary), 1 miscarriage and 1 abortion later, I finally said goodbye and stopped holding on. Goodbyes are obviously not something I am accustomed to.

    My ex bf broke up with me cuz he couldn't deal

    with the fact I have to go back to my home country. He thought that long distance relationship would never work out. I tried to change his mind in my ways. I even talked with his mom to help me out. I was willing to change my whole life for him. And then I could fight for us...

    I have said 'Good bye' very rarely

    but to me that is all about giving them the time to heal from the pain caused. When you genuinely respect someone, like them, think of them as nice, you cannot really take them off your life. Sometimes, saying 'Good bye' is needed. It may hurt us.But you do not want them to say...

    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 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...

    In a sense my life can be defined by a long

    series of goodbyes. I remember the first one when I was 5 and my best friend moved 200 miles away with his family. But confusing as that was for a 5yo kid, perhaps it was a good learning experience for what was to follow with school, college, uni and work. Things change, people...

    I find it hard to to say goodbye

    when I leave a friends house to go home or awkwardly end a conversation when you bump into someone on the street. But either way no matter the situation its never goodbye, it's see you later... Don't ever tell someone goodbye bc it's only temporary you will see them again. I'm...

    As he starts to drift it's a sense of relief,

    but once I realize it's starting to sink and drown just like every other thing I'm starting to panic. I was right, we were only friends it was only sex.

    because of something stupid. When we broke up we always got back together but this time I became crazy. Like insanely crazy and ruined everything. I can't take it.

    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.

    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 hate goodbyes, especially

    when someone is waiting by the car, expecting you wave you off and it won't start and you sit there, judder judder, with smelly blue smoke, coming out the back, Then revving, they're waving and Then immediately stall the car, so embarrassing

    I never liked him as a person.

    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...

    but sometimes in life there is nothing we can
