There is 'good' in goodbyes!

Have you ever wondered why the sunset is more colorful than the sunrise? I guess, it's the irony of life; there is 'good' in goodbyes. Do you agree or not?

Yes. I have wandered that also. It is so pretty sometimes. I think it has to do with the other planets that are shading it or something. It is a reflection also. I think there are some good in some goodbyes. It is wanderful when you get to meet again. It is sad when we say goodbye for the last time though.

Sunset is more colorful than sunrise maybe because at sunset its dark thus you can see more the colors that innates from the sun. Regarding your little ironies of life, I would somewhat agree with you but I hate goodbyes. I would say Goodbyes bring new hope and new love for the next sunrise. It may hurt so badly because one think that his world collapsed, he should think that in goodbyes a new beginning of a more happy story will unfold as the wound of goodbyes heals.

I remember a song from a musical that asked "where is the sin in sincere, where is the good in good bye". There were a few others but I know what you mean. There are many things we say that if you look at them don't make sense. There are many ironies in life. Just take the good with the bad and enjoy life.

depends on what you like, I love a sunrise over a sunset, it is fresh and new, I never say goodbye, goodbye is forever, I say see ya or something like that but never good bye,

Nice parallel you made there. It's quite interesting why the sunset is actually more colorful than the sunrise...I have to admit, I thought at this for a while, but...no idea. Now, about your topic...I would just want to say there is something good in almost every bad that happens. But only if you we are thorough enough to see it. We always try to think about what may be good in a bad thing we are about to do, don't we? ~ ...in my opinion... feel free to express yours ~

Hello,jeannie, ..... The sunrise is also colorful as the sun set.but people like the sunset because after a day's labor the night would bring you lots of enjoyment in the club,enjoy a good dinner and go for a good night sleep.but it is just the reverse in the morning.with the sun rise we get up and go for finishing routine works and run for work.that is why sun rise is not so welcome as the sun set.similarly there is no good in good byes.would you feel good to say good bye to your love.I am sorry i could not agree with you.thank you and all the best.
