Saying goodbye hurts…
But strangely, I love saying goodbye. That may seem counter intuitive at first. How could I love something that hurts me?
I love saying goodbye because it reminds me how much I love a person. To watch someone leave your life, even for a short time, is like watching a piece of yourself disappear. It’s like watching time pass. To watch someone leave your life is to witness an ending, but many times it is also to witness a beginning.
Saying goodbye makes me feel alive.
Who wouldn’t want to feel alive while they’re living?
