“Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same.”
~ Flavia Weedn
People come and people go… it’s a fact that isn’t always an easy one to accept; especially when the last thing you want to do is to say goodbye.
But, it’s very much a part of life, that we will have to bid someone at some point in our lives, farewell.
Whether it’s a final goodbye, a decision that we make concerning an individual, or one where someone has made concerning us – goodbyes are inevitable.
Let’s face it; usually, there’s nothing good, fun or easy in having to say our goodbyes.
In my mind, I would rather have it where the people in my life would be there for the rest of my life. I wouldn’t choose to tell anyone goodbye, unless I knew we’d eventually say hello again.
However, with age, I have come to understand a couple of things about saying goodbye.
- There are sometimes we will have to say goodbye, in order to welcome something new into our lives.
- There are other times when whatever we’re saying goodbye to may be drawing us away from who we are to become in the future.
The reality of the word goodbye… although hard to say at times, it’s one of those words that we should become very accustomed and comfortable in saying when the time arrives for us to say it.
For I’m sure there are those who will attest to the fact, that there is nothing more damaging to an individual’s heart, mind, and soul than a missed opportunity to say their goodbyes.
What are you thinking?
How are you about saying goodbyes? Does it come with ease for you or with much difficulty?
Thank you so much for your support – it means more to me than you may ever know. Cheers and blessings.
