I Hate Saying Goodbye

    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.

    No more tears of sadness,

    only tears of joy I know your struggles are over. I know you struggled within yourself also, trying be cleaned. I know you needed help as, a family they tried. Even though I know help wasn't enough the demons you had to face. The demon side would come out every time you needed...

    😢 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.

    After realizing that I,

    alone, simply could not reverse the beliefs she stubbornly clung to, ... my offers to trust, reconcile and cooperate kept falling on deaf ears.... and no amount of love expressed in any thinkable way was reaching her, I had to say goodbye.

    Which is why I've had

    such difficulty turning my neck to the left side... not wanting to see ... that there's no-one standing beside me ... but further behind me.

    I cried during my middle school graduation.

    My high school graduation. When my best friend moved for college. I'm so bad that I graduated from high school in 2009 and some songs remind me of those days and make me cry still.

    I came back from holiday today.

    I can't stop crying. It's so hard to say goodbye to the people you love. I'm used to being with all my aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents. And suddenly I have to leave, knowing that I won't see them for a long time. I wish I could turn back time.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    my loved ones. It's always been a problem, ever since I could remember. My mother would come see me after work to put me to bed, and I'd be asleep before I could give her a hug and kiss goodbye. I guess that was her way of saying it. By leaving when I was asleep. It always hurt...

    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.
