One Last Time

I am not good at saying goodbye. I never even wanted to hear it, so why would I be good at saying it, right? But I guess it’s one of life’s challenges. You know, every beginning surely has an ending. So I guess, no matter how you escape from saying it, there would come a time that you have no choice but say goodbye.

For the past few weeks, I had my share of goodbyes. It wasn’t easy but I had to. Before going any further, let me just say this, “I realized that goodbyes come when you least expect it.  Moreover, you have to say it to people you never thought you’ll be saying it to.”

You know what’s more painful? It is when you have to say goodbye to something or someone that or who means a lot to you. It is more painful when you are left with no choice but say goodbye. It is more painful when you don’t want to but you just really need to.

For the past weeks, I bid goodbye to people and things that mean a lot to me. People and things that I thought I would never have to lose. But like I’ve said, I was left with no other choice. By the way, among the two, saying goodbye to people was a lot harder and painful than saying bye to the latter.  

Anyway, though there’s the sad and painful part, I realized saying goodbye has its good side as well. I realized that saying goodbye could mean being a brave one. It never was a sign of being coward, but of being courageous actually. I also realized that being able to say goodbye is a blessing.

The word goodbye may have its negative connotation, but you know what? It also has its positive implications in someone’s life. So do not be scared by it. It’s an essential part of our lives. Our lives won’t be complete if we do not say goodbye for even just once in our lifetime (which is impossible of course because you’d have to say it a lot of times). Before I forget, saying goodbye is not a one-way-street, so expect that someone would say goodbye to you as well.

-This post goes to people and things I am saying or have said my goodbyes, and to people who did the same to me. Remember, life is vice-versa. It may be goodbyes for now, but tomorrow it would be hellos for sure. :-)

Don't be dismayed at goodbyes, a farewell is necessary before you can meet again and meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends...
