    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!!!!

    I guess I knew it all along.

    That if I waited long enough, he'd leave me too. Everyone leaves eventually. I just hoped he'd be different, you know? I'd let myself hope that I'd found someone who truly cared about me. But you know what they say, don't get your hopes up. You'll be let down. I hate to think...

    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...

    Growing up our family moved countries about

    seven times. When it was time to leave, instead of saying goodbye to one of my best friends I just said "see you later". I always thought that if I said it that way, it would mean we would meet again.

    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...

    "Never say goodbye. If you don?

    t say 'goodbye,' then you aren't really gone. You just... aren't here right now." - Carolina. I used to agree with this but now I wish I was brave enough to say goodbye.

    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.

    I find so many transient people on this website.

    I become really good friends with them, I talk to them for a while and then they just disappear or we stop talking. It sucks losing a friend you've only had for a short time. Even in real life, my two best friends are leaving me. I won't be able to see them as often. There's...

    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...

    Goodbyes aren't my thing.

    Never say goodbye unless you truly will never see that person ever again.

    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

    it's time to end it all.

    goodbye to all who have helped me in my fight but I have lost. I am gonna cut for each person I love and a special one for James. Goodbye people. I'm sorry I failed most of you. I can only apologise for my mistakes and for being a failure. I love you all but its time to end me.

    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...

    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.

    I hate them. Especially

    when you never get to see them again. When they leave this world, why does it hurt so much? Even if you never met them. Example, Paul Walker.. I cry every time I think about him. Why does it kill people inside when people die? Why does it need to hurt so much? Why can't it...

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

    Whether they're 'goodbye'

    until I see you again or 'final goodbyes' I still find myself shedding or hiding tears. I may not have said a final goodbye to my Ex-Husband but I did to my marriage and being half of a couple and although I was to blame I still cry when no-one is looking
