    Tara!

    Goodbyes are bad for me. The emotional impact is bad enough but today I had to wave goodbye to the whole of one side of a National Express Coach because it had blacked out windows and I had no idea where she was sitting.  Of course I shouldn't worry about such public displays...

    Did socialising, 5 friends round a kitchen

    table. Usual middle age, middle class maul of cannabis and wine. Usual melee of storytelling and disinterest. The goodbyes are telling. I’m the best at it. They all drag it out with hugs kisses and it’s like it’s been forever and we’ll never do it again; me I’m just...

    Goodbye

    When you walked out the door, you walked out of my life too. You closed the door on me forever, all because you didn’t believe in us. I questioned why you left & wondered if it was because you believed I never loved you enough or was it simply because you fell out of love...

    but I think goodbyes are sad and I'd much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure.

    anxiety. I can trace it back to the time when I was a child, I had to spend vacation in my aunt's place during summer breaks. It was real challenge for me to stay there even if I was enrolled in a swimming and first aid lessons in a nearby school. I made friends there but when...

    Do I Have To?

    I'm not good with good-byes of the heart-breaking sort, so I try not to say anything if I'm ever in such a situation.

    Goodbye To A Neighbor

    My across the street neighbor moved away today. Although I didn't talk to them very often because they're in their 60s, today the lady said to be "good luck in life. I know you'll be successful". That just got to me that I would never see them again and it's really sad.

    Bye Bye Best Friend...

    I am used to being an outcast and a loner wherever I go. I don't mind it, though, because I've come to embrace my wierdness. Before I came to my international boarding school, I felt like I would never amount to anything because everyone (including my teachers) in my old school...
