It’s one of life’s most intolerable moments. It can tear you up inside for days and weeks on end. That final word, final hug, final kiss. You don’t want to let go but you have to; don’t want to lose the happy feeling, but you will. There’s pain, there’s loss,
Eventually there’s joy through this painful, arduous process. Eventually you figure out how great it is that you found someone who makes it hard to say good bye. There’s few people in our lives who are truly hard to leave; hard to let go of. These are the people who help shape our lives; help give them meaning. For as hard as it is for us to let them go, it is equally hard for them to let us go. How great it is to find someone who’s hard to say good bye to.
