    Goodbye?

    Yes, saying goodbye is the hardest thing to do just not in this situation, my situation. Ever been hurt repeatedly and the one person you trust changes? Yeah my situation. I trusted him more than anything, anyone. But one day everything completely changed and i knew deep down...

    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?

    I certainly can't stands goodbyes.

    And I don't mean bye bye or bye. I mean bye for good never talking again. That is incredibly hard for me to do. I don't even say "Goodbye" When a friend has to leave. I say like "See you later" Or "Bye bye" Never goodbye. If someone I cared about said goodbye to me it'd to me...

    I don't say goodbye to anybody,

    not unless I know I will not talk to them again. Goodbye for me, is the end of a relationship, the end of a life, the end of a bitter friendship. It's the closing word, nothing ever need follow.

    I think as hard as saying goodbye is,

    "hardEST thing to do" is quite the stretch. Personally, I think losing a limb and sexual abuse as a child, just to name a few, rank pretty high up there.

    I think saying goodbye is one of the toughest

    challenges we all have to go through in life at sometime. From saying goodbye to friends for good, cause you both just don't get along or one hurt the other bad. From saying goodbye to your pet, when he is taken away from you, for whatever reason including death. From a family...

    I Think Saying Goodbye Is The Hardest Thing To

    Do, especially when you love that someone. I completely ended things with my ex Langston M last night, and I regret it. He probably didn't even read the messages or at least all of it. I let him know how I felt, how he makes me feel when he does certain things and just that it...
