So much difficulty with Goodbyes

I think I may have written here in a previous post how one of my favorite quotations happens to be about goodbyes.. but let me write that down here again just to make my point: 

“Don’t be dismayed at goodbyes.  Meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.”

— by the ever famous Anonymous

I have never been very good at goodbyes.  While I am not the weepy type, I do tend to get very emotional about it.  These days I am haunted by my last goodbye with my father in Manila, and more recently, the tearful goodbyes between Angel and me at daycare.  It doesn’t get any easier — and the image sticks in my heart and mind.

Yet goodbyes are a fact of life.  Sometimes we do them without issue — without pain.  Other times, we protest violently yet have no choice.

I just let out an audible sigh.  Never easy.  But I look forward to the “meeting again” part.. the thought of it alone makes my heart smile.
