    ๐Ÿ˜ข this makes me sad I really do it hate it

    though. Because sometimes there comes circumstances in your life where you can't be with that person you want to be with day in and day out. And now when nighttime falls you go one way and they go the next it's just hard to deal with. I honestly hate it.

    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...

    Its horrible. You've just had lots of fun

    and now you have to go to boring old home. But saying goodbye at the airport is the worst, it makes me cry for hours.

    To the point that I almost won't

    even say it. It's such a habit, even when parting with a casual acquaintance I probably will never see again I'm more likely to say: "See ya!" Odd, I know.

    With this being the last day of the school year,

    I've said goodbye far too much. I spent a class period talking to Mr. Way, my English teacher. His face lit up when I asked if he had any plans over break, and he talked excitedly about how he usually caught, tagged, and released sharks over vacations. I might have him the...

    I Just Said Goodbye

    Last night I watched my bro pack his bags and do his final kit checks.  He goes away all the time but this is different, he's going to war again and the risk of him not coming back is very real. There aren't many times that I will break tradition and actually hug...

    I don't like saying goodbye.

    Even if it you're going to see that person the next day, the word 'goodbye' just seems to final, like you're putting an end to it forever.

    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.

    Goodbyes ;(

    I never like saying goodbye to people, especially when I want to see them again. Goodbyes seem like that's going to be it forever...that I'm never going to see or hear from them again.. I only use goodbyes on people who I don't want to see again.
