“I’ve had to say goodbye more times than I’ve liked, but everyone can say that. And no matter how many times we do it, even when it’s for the greater good, it still stings. And though we’ll never forget what we’ve given up, we owe it to ourselves to keep moving forward. What we can’t do is live our lives always afraid of the next goodbye, because chances are they’re not going to stop. The trick is to recognize when a goodbye can be a good thing; when it’s a chance to start again.”
We bond with people very easily; the problem comes in when we have to part ways. I’ve had to move from one place to another, and as that happened “Goodbye” seemed to be the hardest word I had to say. As we moved away, some still stayed in touch while some decided to take a different route all together. It’s very sad when one chooses a different life when all that has probably changed is the distance between us. Why is it as if you’ve lost each other forever? For those who I have actually lost forever, I didn’t get a chance to say “Goodbye” to them. The feelings were intense, and being able to recover from such losses seemed impossible. But perceiving it as a good thing, it didn’t seem as a loss any longer. For that I’d definitely have to thank those who stood by me.
