    ..I don't like goodbyes they break my heart. I wish everything stayed the same, I wish my friends didn't change. I hope, I hope, I hope and I'm still hoping for real people real things, good things

    It's always so awkward.

    The worst is when you have a nice goodbye then you forgot something and have to go back. Do you do it again? Sneak in and out quickly?

    Saying good bye hurts,

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

    The worst goodbye is

    when you realize it was the last goodbye.

    Roses bring immense joy to the masses.

    For others, the rose which brings joy to the masses, brings only sadness of a final goodbye. Change the stimulus when painful. In America, we say goodbye. I am here. You are there. As we part, we translate goodbye into Icelandic: Bless...

    Stroke after stoke, surgery

    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.

    You can't ever know when it'll be the last one.

    If I'd known that one I'd said to my Dad that day was my last I'd have said a lot more before it. Tell people you love them whenever you get the chance!

    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...

    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. I hate them

    so much that I try to avoid them altogether. If I leave someone's house I don't say goodbye I just leave. My family is so used to me doing so that they don't seem to notice anymore.

    I hate when you think people actually truly

    love you, and then they leave and say it's not your fault. Then a week later they have another girlfriend. it's the worse.

    The reason why I hate goodbyes is

    because saying goodbye means never seeing that person ever again. And I care about the people in my life to much to ever say goodbye. I'd change it to, see you later alligator! Cheesy I know haha

    I don't really like saying goodbye ,

    considering goodbye basically means forever . if I talk to you , I don't want it to be a temporary thing . so instead of goodbye , say "talk to you later" or something , because if you say goodbye to me , & mean it ... I'll be gone for good 👌

    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 had to say good bye to a job

    that I've had for two years and made some amazing friends. I will truly miss them guys. I guess it's time to turn around and keep going for the future. sometimes it's hard to close a door but you have to cowboy up and march through the door ahead and make it the best.

    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.

    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 absolutely hate goodbyes.

    They feel permanent and like they're never coming back. Like that's the last thing you're saying. A "see you later!" Or "bye" or "bye bye!" Works just fine.
