Saying Goodbye

There's something odd about having to say goodbye.

For people like me, who has said goodbye to those he loves time and time again, it never gets easier. There is this feeling inside that almost feels like you might never see them again, but you hold it in. One must be supportive. One has to understand those whom have to or choose to leave, that is our role as friends. Nevertheless, it is still hard to say goodbye.

Two months ago I had to say goodbye to the one person I love the most for several months. Today I had to say goodbye to two people for maybe a longer time than that. Who knows. It was weird; the element of mixed emotions involved because you have to be happy for them, you have to act like all is well, and you still have to show you care about their imminent absence. It's weird now. Sitting here and somehow knowing tomorrow they will not be there. Maybe you didn't see them every day, maybe you didn't speak to them in a week, maybe ...
but now they're not there for when you would.

I am not going to make this much longer but to just say my farewell to you two. Simple. The way I should, the way I feel I must somehow.

Before anything, thank you. Thank you for www.doctorzeuss.com, you did not know but when I joined your forum in August 2004 I was in a low point in my life and being part of your Zeussianos really helped me. Thank you for believing in me when all those others really hated me. Thank you for always fixing my computer. Thank you because without you I would not have met as many people as I did in 2005. And although now I don't have anyone to call whenever something goes wrong with my computer, YOU ROCK!

Good luck! Godspeed! Metal Forever!
And like you said, "I love you, in the manly way"



---------------------------------------
Dude. I have said goodbyes and farewells to you before, but I always knew you would be back for sure. I always knew you would be here in a couple of months and again I would have you around to make me laugh. You say I have one of the most contagious laughs ever and that I'm like a little kid. Yeah. Maybe I am. I think one of my most favorite things in the world is making you laugh. I am and will always be here for you. You are my best friend and my big brother. Love you to death man ...
You turd
!

I already miss ya dood...


---------------------------------------

So maybe this didn't mean anything to all you other readers.
Maybe you were expecting some crazy story.
Maybe you thought my hair would attack me again.
That my parents would say something stupid.
LoTigre would have another hilarious weekend.
Or that I made up some other hilarious dumb word.
Maybe. But then again ...
Right now I'm just a normal guy with two friends less nearby.
Thank you for your understanding.

I hate saying goodbye. Puede ser una persona que conoci antes de ayer or a life long friend, I get all mushy and I cry.

I had tears today rolling down my cheeks for both of them.. Even though i dont know them as much as i should but still, they will both be missed.

Nos quedamos par mas, don't worry ;)

Bueno, maybe we don't have the same relationship with moreno or zeuss. Nevertheless...this post has more to it than that. It's the powerfull and probably the most difficult word to say: GOODBYE. I'm sure everyone has gone through that and its been hard. Some harder than others. Because goodbye for someone you will never see, passed away, is the hardest goodbye ever known.

Goodbye to the person you love...that hopefully you will see in four months but seems such a long time from then...makes you think that its forever! that what if you never see them again? your friends? your family back home? well. I should know. I've been through some tough goodbyes in my life. I guess we all have to hang in there and wish for the best. :)

oscar its gonna be ok!!! :* MUAH...

y no creo que people really expect anything en ese sentido... they just expect george. con sus buenas y sus malas. sus mood swings bloggeros, sus funny stories y sad stories. sus reflexiones y sus bonches de fin de semana. but most of all, the expect a living, breathing human being que tiene una manera unica de contar lo que hace, siente y piensa.

"I love you, in the manly way"



Didn't think I'd see that phrase used again. Definately tough to let go of friends. Great friends are hard to come by and life sometimes seperates those connections.

Celia Cruz lo puso mejor con su cancion y frase:

La vida es un carnaval.

Increible emotions whether they be sad, of love or reflective pieces. Be well.

Peace!

Saludo:

Para donde cojio dr. Zeuss?

Teacher George said...

el doctor se fue para Miami por un tiempo, creo que mas como escala para Madrid. Por lo menos hasta ahi es que me se la jugada.

Kandy said...

Decir adiós es tan triste y doctorzeuss era un super foro... :(

Baakanit said...

Bueno por fin, para donde se va Zeuss?

It is good to see how much you appreciate your friends, joselo, zeuss, el moreno, alfonso, manu, you guys seems to be a very tight group.

Those are the friendships that last, the ones that overcome the waves of time. You are completely wrong, when you say that other readers might not care, or understand, Friendship is an universal sentiment, that every that has ever had a friend who has been there for him, would understand.

You are wrong again, when you say that you are a normal guy, not everybody, has the heart to say publicly that they appreciate, the presence, and feel bother for the absence of a valued friend.

If you still have problems with your computer put it inside a box and send it to zeuss, wherever he might be at, i'm certain that he'll send it back working, or with a few missing parts.

have a good one!

Mierkina Yorch yo no sabia k tu eras un pana tan apero!... Para mi este post vale mas que muchos otros k me han hecho reir... De verdad que si!.. Pero even though they r leaving u know u have to friends out there that u can count on...

val said...

i hate saying "good bye";

i prefer saying "see you later"
aunque no se vean pronto, pero da un aire de que pronto se veran, y eso ayuda con la auscencia, no?

Libélula said...

Saying goodbye is always tough. I've had to go to waaaay to many farewell parties for dear friends too...and it never gets easier...the only good thing is you have a home away from home if you ever wanna go visit!

Haz said...

while tears run down my face, u made me remember my friends...me hiciste recordar a esas personas que tuve que dejar cuando me mude a USA... :(
