Thoughts on saying goodbye to loved ones

In a way, goodbyes have been prominent in my life at the moment. With a combination of people I love and will miss going on holiday and the goodbyes that I know are just around the corner next year when I'm off to Uni, I've been thinking (and worrying) about them a lot. Saying goodbye to someone you love dearly is always horrible, even if it's only for a week or so it can be heart breaking. They're never permanent, I know the person/people I'm saying goodbye to will always be in my life in some way yet I still let myself be very affected by goodbyes.

However, I'm not sure that this is really a bad quality to have. It shows that I care a lot about people and that I have wonderful love in my life. I know that I would much rather care about and get emotional when I have to say goodbye to those I love than not have that love in my life. It's a blessing to have people who I love so much that saying goodbye hurts.

As well as this, I've noticed that, when you have to say goodbye to the people you love the most, you end up telling them how much they mean to you. Goodbyes are a good opportunity to truly let people know just how much they really do mean to you and express your love in the best way you know how. Goodbyes help you to say things that you might need to say to your loved ones.

Also, after the goodbyes are over and once you get to the hellos again it is the best feeling in the world. Seeing your loved one after an absence helps you to realize how much you love them, it's good for your relationships. It really is true that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Goodbyes are hard but maybe, at least sometimes, they're for the best.
