    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.

    Tonight I have to say goodbye to a friend

    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...

    and we met during a school event at my high school about three years ago. She was in town for a show that she and other performers were gonna put on. We talked and had a really good time and found out we had a lot in common, so we quickly became good friends and when the school...

    I always find saying goodbye to my friends the

    hardest thing, I never know what to say or what to do. I know they know I will miss them but what to say is so very difficult, especially as I have only just worked out to say good bye to my parents!!

    I really do but I had to.

    .. My way of saying goodbye to my lover was: I hid a goodbye letter with my favorite sexy underwear underneath his pillow after we had a rough hard nice sex... No regrets. I needed to taste him one last time.

    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.

    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...

    The most painful goodbyes are the ones

    that are never said and never explained.

    The only time a goodbye is painful,

    is when you know you'll never say hello again.

    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...

    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

    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...

    I don't like it all because it means I won't

    get to see them again for a while. It makes me feel sad to have to give them up to live their own lives. And that every very special moment has to come to an end. :(

    Saying and being told "Goodbye"

    or "Bye", feels like you won't see each other again... It will even feel worse if you won't say your "Hi's and Hello's" anymore...

    I was keeping my mind on bringing home the

    Queen of Hungary for my sister at the airport and a list of other things to do. I had to try hard to distract myself. Looking at your goodbye messages on my phone brings tears to my eyes while waiting for the flight. Parting is such a sweet sorrow, my Dearie.

    Sometimes I don't though.

    But then with the right person goodbye can be the hardest thing to say. Sometimes I try to avoid goodbyes and just say "talk to you later" because goodbye is like...Idk it just feels like you couldn't care less whether they came back

    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.

    Though, to be honest,

    I believe it's the only word left to say. My best friend here is gone, and has been for some time. I don't seem to have as much time as I once did, which has affected my other friendships. A few of them seemingly so adversely that those friends no longer communicate at all...
