Saying goodbye is probably the most painful thing, ever. It’s the worst word to ever utter. It’s right up there neck and neck with, “I don’t love you” or even worse:
Telling someone you love him or her…and that person not saying I love you back.
Goodbye is final. It’s depressing. It’s heartwrenching. It cuts you right in the gut.
Endings are the worst. Truly. There is no torture worse than a breakup or divorce, right?
Right…very right. And wrong.
When love is real and right, it doesn’t end. It doesn’t end for a few weeks or months. It doesn’t die. It might ebb and flow. You might have times in which your “love tank” for your partner is low.
But it doesn’t end. It doesn’t say goodbye. Real love persists, even when sometimes, g-d damnit, we wish we didn’t love someone …
Real love with someone is forever because it always exists.
So if you’re saying goodbye or someone is leaving you in the dust it is very painful, but sometimes?
It’s very right.
Saying goodbye means that there is a “Hello” about to come right around the corner.
Saying goodbye to someone who isn’t right for you, isn’t right to you, or you two aren’t right together…means a fresh start.
Saying goodbye means you are back on that train platform, waiting to see what destination awaits you.
Where your heart will take you next.
