    No need to say Goodbye to special friends

    who must move on. Sometimes it is not within our control to have what we so desire. Other times, the decision is self sacrificing for the sake of others. Either way, it is not easy. It is however, a sign of maturity. For that, there is great respect.

    Especially if it's someone special.

    But I guess the long conversation is already for somebody else while what you have are shorter ones and sometimes nothing at all. Bottomline, you suck and someone else doesn't so leave it and move on.

    Goodbye, My Friend...

    I played in a friendly golf tournament on Monday. I was partnered with someone, who I am known for over 15 years. We have been business acquaintances and friends over a long span of time. He had cancer earlier on in life. It went into remission but it came back aggressively in...

    I Never Knew How Much Until Now

    I love you and I always will. Every moment we have shared has been precious to me. We have shared so much together; I have seen your triumphs and felt immense pride and I have seen your hurts and felt the deepest pain imaginable because I knew I could not take it away. As I think...

    It hurts so much to save goodbye,

    and to be separated again. I live for the day he moves in with me, and we never have to be separated ever again ~

    My friend and I had been friends

    for over 6 years. But when we started secondary school she changed. She wasn't her usual self anymore. She bullied me severely, I was pushed to breaking point. I don't know what I did wrong. I finally decided to stand up for myself against her. I knew I had to say goodbye to her...

    Failure

    As soon as you left I wanted you to come back. The words rising from the wells in my heart wanted to prevent you from opening the door and even more from closing it, leaving me inside in a silence that is endless like a prison of freedom and shackles alike. Those words...

    So I was talking to someone here on EP

    since the day I joined. And we talked almost every day. Tonight I got a message that said "have a good life. Goodbye" now all of our messages are gone. It makes me sad.

    Or never come from jerks. Or require we lie about liking jerks. They really bite too hard.

    Hate Goodbyes

    I hate having to say good bye. There's that awkward moment sometimes when you stand there and depending on who it is, you don't know what to do; hug them, shake hands, just wave? lol But I hate the moment of departing. If you're by yourself afterwards it makes you feel all...

    The silence sets in. It entered on its socks and suddenly stood there, like a specter to be touched. As soon as its presence was felt, things became different and the meanings shifted. Beauty and innocence, giving and taking changed as if there was another weight in the balance...

    I don't goodbyes because

    that means you're going to leave me alone. Goodbye means you want to go separate ways from me… Don't say goodbye but instead say "See you next time" because it makes me feel that I'm not gonna be left alone.

    I'M Not Good With Goodbyes

    A quality I hate most about myself is that I get attached way to easily. I'm not just talking about guys but people in general. If I get close to you no matter who you are, when the time comes for the goodbye I become an emotional wreck. I'm starting to think that's why I don't...

    For a reason unknown I was sad all of a sudden and I felt blue as if the sky had changed. I knew that roads were parting soon, I knew it wouldn't stay since spring doesn't last longer than a season. You couldn't see this shift, this subtle new direction and I did not want to...

    "goodbye" the harshest

    and most awful thing you can say to a person you care about. it pierces right through your heart. specially deep down you know that he/she will never say hello again that as time passes, little by little he will soon forget you.
