I Hate Saying Goodbye

    It Was Supposed to Be " See You Later "...

    I remember you... I remember everything. Every word, every sigh, even our last kiss... The one that was supposed to say "See You Later" instead of goodbye. Remember me, for some part of me will always rule a distant kingdom with you.

    It's like a weird phobia Whenever someone says

    goodbye I get really anxious and I start to get a little clingy like I will drag on the convo. I honestly have no idea why I'm like this but hey we all have quirks

    I'm leaving experience project

    and quite possibly this life I've know but I will miss the ones I've met and the friends I've made. Thank you and goodbye. I welcome the needle this one last time. Too much.

    okay. so I change my mind.

    I won't delete my account. I'll keep it, but I'll delete the app. I'll keep my account so that I'll be able to come back once I'm stable.

    Saying goodbye is always hard.

    Whether it be to your cousin that lives far away or just a friend you wish you got more time with. Its hard saying it to a boyfriend/girlfriend. Regardless. Of who you are saying goodbye too. If you know you wont be seeing the person or talking for a while you start missing them...

    explanation. Now I know. This is damn hard. July 30th 2011 was the first day I had this account. (Yep, surprisingly EP keep accurate records!) Today will be the last. I suspect the reasons matter only to me and I won't discuss them here. I just want to say thank you to everyone...

    I lost my sister a year ago.

    She was 1, she had another month before she turned 2. I remember having to walk to her casket. She looked like she was asleep, I wanted to wake her up. I wanted to say Neely please wake up. I was in the room under her when she passed away in her sleep. I never got to say goodbye...

    Just over 3 weeks ago,

    I have a boyfriend for almost a year by now,

    and everytime we say goodbye to each other, i always tend to cry. A lot. One moment was when we went on a date on my birthday. We watched a movie, played, and ate together for 5 hours only, I guess. After that, we rode a cab on the way home. Just in the cab, I already felt like...

    It's the closest anyone will ever come to

    seeing me cry. Sad to say this but im the type of person who would rather walk away without saying goodbye. Hurt's alot less. It's interesting to me how the other person thinks everything will be perfectly fine and continue to go the way it is. Not to be negative, but deep down...

    Hiding My Emotions

    Saying goodbye is never easy and it is not something that you can get used to - no matter how often you say it. My father lives in another country and I only see him 5-6 times a year for about 6-7 days. Therefor we often say "goodbye" to each other. Over the years I have become...
