Poorer but richer

Goodbyes are never easy. And I don't think they are meant to be easy. Although I feel as if I lack something, I feel I am rich as I have gained so much more - friendship and memories. Not that there were no friendship or memories before. It is just that the heart sizes have grown larger to contain more love.

Currently feeling: Sad

How odd in this world of internet connectivness that face to face time is so... good.

Ahhh goodbyes ARE horrible but I always try to keep in mind they are tempered with the giddy happiness that comes with seeing someone you haven't seen in awhile. I hope your sad mood lifts soon!

Bungi said...

Mahathma - Thank you. But no thank you.

Ryan - It really is.

Brandy - Tell me about it! They are horrible. I guess i will be fine soon. Just need to let it wear off... Thanks.

Some days you have to say goodbye. We say that today to our friend Brandon forever. It sucks but I have to, I am not God. Same day I may see him again after I have finished living.

Feeling better? Come on, get out of this emotional depression. :) No beer? - Maybe a fresh orange juice?

Bungi said...

Nancy - The lack of goodbyes is one of the things i am looking forward to in heaven...

Choconet - I'm feeling better already. Thanks a lot for offering OJ. I'll settle for lots of chocolate actually... I will start posting soon.

Chances are very good you will meet three new poeple on the 6th of August... pray that it works out.

Goodbyes....I just had a big one for the better. I had to move away from a destructive situation for a little while. Leaves room in the heart to receive as well as to give love, though. With a little more of the real thing, I might have more to offer my old friend. Sad, bittersweet, necessary. Ah, good-byes.

Well, my whole blog was about goodbyes last year. It wasn't easy at all. But after you've said goodbye to about 10 people in a row, you get used to it and look forward to meeting them again. I also got tired of looking sad everytime people saw me...hahaha

Bungi said...

Jude - Ugh. I don't like beer.

Ryan - Yay! Shall see you guys soon!!

Sandy - I never thought of good-byes to things that weren't meant to be as a way of making room in your heart for more...

Gitu - I am doing good now. Thanks, man. Goodbyes ARE horrible indeed.

Anju - Just when i thinks that i have gotten used to this stuff, it comes back to hit me hard... And looking sad can be really tiring indeed.

Jude said...

goodbyes are good. that way you cut it short before you get tired of each other.

Ruksana said...

Okay sorry I think I know its not Maddie! Yup goodbyes aint my cup of tea either. And I will have to do them after my vacation in India...I dread it! I am not even there yet!

Bungi said...

Jude - Hmmm... Maybe... But then may be not...

Ruki - He he. No it wasn't Maddie. Good byes are aweful, aren't they? Just thinking about them can spoil all the fun...
