I Hate Saying Goodbye

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,259 People

    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...

    I don't like goodbyes ,

    they're so forward...So direct they just end something so magnificent so sudden like snuffing out a brilliant flame. but that's not why i'm afraid of them Somehow in the moments after even on a planet of 7 billion people you can feel so alone. Worse is when they happen in winter...

    I always wondered why people delete without

    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...

    Just over 3 weeks ago,

    my parents surprised us with a visit from my grandparents who live in England! It was so amazing, probably the best surprise ever! I'm so thankful for the time they were here and for all the fun we had! Of course, visits like that always end far too quickly and today they...

    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...

    Recently my closest friend decided to cut off

    our Relationship. She was so close to me, and just a few days ago we were laughing and watching videos together, Now she decided that she didn't want to see me anymore. She said it was because she had to "heal scars" with her family. But I don't get it because she is still...

    and colleague that I've worked with for nearly 13 years. She's one of my best friends and has just received word of a transfer. I've spent the better part of today crying but tonight we will go out, party, laugh, drink and reminisce. I've just never been one for goodbyes, but I...

    I hate goodbyes so much

    that often I don't even say them. Sometimes I think I can get away with it since I try my best to be forgotten and unnoticed, but that rarely happens. Even when I know I'll never see or talk to that person again I won't say goodbye. I don't know why I hate goodbyes so much, I...

    The sad look in your eyes.

    Then came the look of disappointment, then judgement. "What are we doing, then?" You asked. I couldn't mutter any words. But my mind was racing. "I don't know." and "Good question." I make mistakes, and I make decisions not many people would make. You may not agree with them...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Saying goodbye is a terrible feeling.

    I don't have much family, and when my family from far away come to see me, I am thrilled. I love my 3 cousins that live in Florida and love to see them. When they come to me, I wish I could just freeze time and spend the rest of my life with them.

    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...
