Goodbye

Goodbye, how ironic, isn’t it? Even though the word has ‘good’ in it, it is not good at all good. I don’t know why but goodbyes are one of the most painful and saddening things I’ve ever experienced.

.

Goodbyes have always left me torn between being happy as it was a great time with them or being sad because now they are leaving. When I was small, whenever my cousins or my dear ones came home, my first question to them was when they will go. This was because I didn’t want that day to arrive at all. I hated to say goodbye to them, sometimes I even used to cry. And that was the most painful thing.

.

Now when I grew up, goodbyes became a less harsh because I just got used to them after some time. But this does not mean that it is easy to say goodbye even now.

.

That realisation, when it hits you that you’ll never live this moment again is the worst.

When I left the school, it struck to me that the time I spent in school, the people I met daily even though they were not my bestest friends, the fun I had, everything, will never come back no matter what happens. The same is happening now when I have to bid adieu to my college, my classes where I used to go daily for hours, to the people I used to meet daily. Everything will come to a stop. I know eventually I’ll move on, but still the goodbye is the hardest. This will never be the same, and I’d miss this.

.

I don’t know if this happens with everyone or it’s just me, but believe me goodbyes are the saddest when you know that things will never be the same.

.

But as usual everyone has to move on and focus on the road ahead rather than looking back.

    I can relate to the part of asking guests when they will leave. It was kind of cute yet offensive. I got warning that I shouldn’t ask them like that ๐Ÿ˜…
    But yeah, goobyes have nothing good in them except the past memories.
