    Good byes have always been difficult right

    since i was a kid. My Dad had a transferable job so every 2-3 yrs i would have to leave my school, friends, house, neighbourhood behind and start a new life afresh. The good part was we shifted only cities and not countries, at least that made it easier. However as i grew up i...

    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.

    Stroke after stoke, surgery

    "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.

    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.

    It's kind of a long story,

    but during my sixth grade year (I was eleven), I became super close to a special education teacher. I was able to speak to her about anything and everything. I had never had someone like that in my life before. I loved feeling like I was lovable, and that I could be open about...

    Goodbyes are so weird.

    I never like saying goodbye. It's just so final. I'm pretty sure the only times that I have ever said the actual word "goodbye" have been when I really did not want that particular moment or relationship to end. I don't think that I would ever say "goodbye" to someone or...

    I Never Knew How Much Until Now

    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 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 👌

    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 ~

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.
