    So I Try Not To

    If I remember, and the problem is I don't always remember, but I try and say see ya later, instead of saying goodbye. It sounds less final.

    it feels like this is all I am doing in my years of existence. I find myself saying more goodbyes than actual hello's. This explains why I am who I am. Over the years of painful goodbyes I am closed off, past experiences have made me build up walls I am hoping no one would be...

    What I Miss Right Now

    I'm having a bad day. That's what I've been calling them. Those days that I miss you so much. It's hard to let go of almost 7 years with you. I feel lost right now. I scrolled though some of the stories on here about saying goodbye. At least you are alive. I'm not struggling with...

    tho it is hard..it is needed.. goodbye is a closure.. which means, a justification and declaration that both need to move on, from each other. And if one of them didn't or couldn't, the other will nt be responsible.. for whatever reason, a Goodbye is necessary.. dont hang...

    I mean saying a real goodbye.

    Not a pretend goodbye to someone you know you'll see again soon. Saying bye to someone you love, because you know it's going to be a long time. Saying goodbye when you mean it so much more than they do. Will they ever think about me again?
