I Hate Goodbyes

    There are few times when I actually cry in

    public. Last night was one of those times. One of my closest friends was having a goodbye party. She's moving and I'll almost probably never see her again. She's from Singapore, I'm from the US, we both lived in China til today. She's going to college in the UK, I'll be in the...

    Yearning

    Using my time to sit alone listening to the peepers beneath my window; I cling to a memory of bitter taste the actual event refusing to present itself to my frontal lobe

    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...

    I hate goodbyes now. Ever sense my older

    brother died while in Afghanistan in a helicopter crash I never even got to say the last goodbye between me and him. I just wish I could get him back and just remember him for all that he has been there for me and I just wish that I could tell him that one last goodbye

    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...

    College-Bound

    There's this person that I've always wished I knew better who is going off to college soon, and it's such an awful feeling!  Every time we were together, we had fun, and we had more in common than you could imagine.  He makes me smile, and now he's leaving!  Rawr...

    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...

    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.

    Did socialising, 5 friends round a kitchen

    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...

    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.
