    I'd rather have a goodbye

    than this excruciating silence

    It took me 14 days of struggling,

    questioning, googling, around-the-clock munching, napping, day-dreaming, self-hating, tear-shedding, and obsessing over all things marines to figure out that I, for some reason, still thinks about you more often than I am proud to say. This is getting embarassing.

    If you leave without

    as much as a word, it shows that you hold me in very little regard. If you care about me at all, you should tell me why you want to leave. It hurts enough to be left in the first place, but it hurts even worse to not know why. I keep placing blame on myself and each time this...

    my soulmate joined a cult

    and hasnt talked to me in a year.we were best friends for .. 15 years. and now.. nothing.no reason why. no goodbye.it took me awhile to realize people come and go for numerous reasons.sometimes to get away from you. sometimes to keep you away from themselves.

    I hate when people leave without saying good-bye.I kind of did it today to someone, but not intentionally, and I felt bad about it immediately, but there was nothing I could do about it anyway.But when it happens, it makes you sad. Sometimes it's hard to say good-bye to people...

    I feel like I've just been kind of

    mini-abandoned. Even if you have to go suddenly, it's not that hard to send "gtg"

    I think it's respectful to end a conversation

    with something along the lines of "goodbye". Otherwise, I sit there wondering if you're mad, if something bad happened to you, your internet went out, or what... Haha!

    I know this is just another online realm,

    but common courtesy should still apply. After 3 months of consistent conversation with someone, just up and leaving is rude...even if we didn't know each other in the real world. a simple goodbye would have been suffice.

    Just last summer my mother,

    my own flesh and blood, left. She just up and left. I had to find out the day before I was going to see her from a friend. She wasn't even going to tell me. When I confronted her she said it was in the name if love. My mom left me so she could find "love".

    My past two relationships were like that.

    One day we were fine, no fights, no problems, nothing then one day they just stop talking to me. Lucas and Ken were my last two and they just one day stopped responding to my texts and messages. I assumed they were just busy but then the messages would show as "seen" and then it...

    I finally deleted you,

    you know? All that time & energy wasted on listening to your LIES. I think the reason you "disappeared" is because lies are simply too hard to keep up and you got tired. Since you, people have asked me why I can't take a compliment or why I react the way I do when they try to...

    Its 4:37am so this won't be my best writing,

    so please don't judge me and if you do...do it silently (please). Anyhow, I had this friend. He and I grew very close. Had an intense affair actually. He was a lot younger than me (no worries he was an independent adult) so technically it could never go anywhere even though...

    A Goodbye Would Have Been Nice.

    I have come to the conclusion that nothing last forever and that I can deal with. What I cannot deal with is the end coming with no warning, no explanation, no nothing. I would have much preferred if you had told me you did not want to talk anymore, told me that this was the end...

    Or at least being alone in my head. I'm tired of staring at your Skype profile, internally screaming for you to call or text; for you to please, please change your mind. I'm tired of trying to find the reason you left , and knowing that I'll never get the definitive answer...

    I do... And for a second I get confused.

    Like... What did I do to deserve the absence of a proper goodbye, a proper hug? I thought we had a connection. I thought that there was something there between us. But there's another side to the spectrum that I must not ignore. I hate goodbyes. I don't even know how to...

    I miss some people, and my mind understands

    that they're gone, but keeps thinking about them so long later, and my heart is still hurt over it. I think I would have just liked some sort of closure- some sort of explanation or a "goodbye".
