Saying goodbye to someone you love is hard because one of you or both of you are choosing not to see each other in this lifetime again. The pain of being together has become more painful than the pain of not being together.
The initial moment when you walk away from each other hurts so bad that you don’t know if you can do it, but as time goes on with each day that passes you either realize how much better you are without the person or the pain or… you regret your choice.
Time will tell. Time is the only thing that helps really. You either develop an ache or a longing for that person… or you move on and they become a string of memories. A life you once lived. A person you once
Loved. A goodbye you survived.
