I hate farewells

I suck at saying goodbye. When I was younger and we would have family friends over, I would always be so depressed when they leave at the end of the evening. Or when I’m either sending a friend or family member off at the airport or am the one travelling away myself – either way, I don’t deal with goodbyes very well…

And so leaving V’s house tonight was awfully painful for me – knowing that tomorrow morning, she’ll be flying down to Palmerston North to do her vet degree for the next 5 years. Despite her coming back for Easter in April, then May for my 18th, it’s still not the same – she won’t just be a 10 minute drive down the road anymore…

    It’s always hard to say goodbye to a friend – but take heart in the fact that it’s not a permanent goodbye! She’s still in the same country, and you WILL see her in two months. :)

    Farewells do suck, but at least she’s visitable distance! Best of luck for the two of you in keeping in touch, and rave it up during Easter =D

    This really made me sad. I’ve moved around quite a bit so I know how hard it is to say good bye. When my best friends and I said our good byes a few months back before college started, my heart literally ached when I gave them our parting hugs even though I knew that we would still see each other at least (at the very least) once every other month.

    *hugs* I hope you’re okay :)
