I Hate Goodbyes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 434 People


    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...

    I don't like saying "goodbye" to another person

    because it's like you'll never see them EVER AGAIN. But I do say it a lot....

    Saying goodbye sucks.

    And I can never find the words to adequately convey how I feel. What is the right thing to say to someone, when you know those are the last words you'll ever share with them? I don't think I got it right. I lost a friend on here, who meant a lot to me. I don't think he...

    the reason why i hate goodbyes .

    . is because..there's only one copy of each one of us. do you know what i mean ? there's only one copy,and there will only be one copy. there's nobody like us . we are all very rare and special and unique in our own ways . we are all like a work of art , like a sculpture shaped...

    One of the main reasons I will never have a

    long distance relationship again. Oh better yet see this is why my nickname in school was Einstein, I had a long distance *affair*! Well in a deal like that every goodbye is tearful. No "see you soon." If I'm ever on the meat market again I will have the two unreasonable demands...

    Goodbyes don't guarantee another hello.

    That's what I hate about them. It could be the last time you see it speak to someone

    "I am letting you go.

    " I cried. One last kiss. One last hug. One last touch. One last look. One last broken smile. I am ready to be happy.

    I've many traumas with it.

    It's hard for me not to get a closure over anything. I once had a gf that died and we argued before I had a chance to say anything. I was depressed for ages. I guess like our body our minds also have scars. I really freak out when I don't have a chance to end a subject. To leave...

    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...

    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...

    and you took my heart with you. We'll miss you but we're happy you're leaving. You were in pain and I couldn't help, we're thousands of miles apart.... I wanted to help but I was too weak, I'm weak and afraid but you suffered for it. Your last year of life was sad and full of...

    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 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.

    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...

    Instead of saying "goodbye" I say "see you".

    And I've been saying "see you, take care of yourself" ever since a close family friend passed 4 years ago.
