Saying goodbye

We meet a lot of people in our lives. They come, they go and others stay. Or they might resurface and rekindle the relationship once more. I have experienced a lot of goodbyes and witnessed some. And the most painful is the one which ended in silence. You slowly drifted apart or the other person no longer need you and doesn't want to stay.

It wasn't that easy to let go because the attachement was there. Throwing away and forgetting the good times together is not that simple because in a way the person has given me some kind of gift. A gift of love and friendship. I have learned from them. I have laughed and enjoyed many moments. So as with everything in life, it has to end.

So, what to do with something become stale and the person no longer there? Accept it.
Move on. Get used to the the fact that it's a part of life and become the very best you can be. Don't bad-mouth them instead be quiet and be grateful of that gift you once have. It will hurt and one may feel the absence but  in the long run you'll get used to it, then something or someone will eventually come.

So I say "Cheers and so long!"

Another gift...Another reason to celebrate life.

Just be thankful to those who say goodbyes and pray for those who say illness towards you.....

Such a bittersweet moment, but I'm glad you were able to feel grateful for the times you had and not angry over their end. That's a difficult state of mind to reach sometimes, but such a wise way to live.
