Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos. ~Charles M. Schulz I also hate goodbyes. What about you?

Well All People Live Together may be Seems Like a Dream. All People Wanna Achieve Something. And For That they Have to Move Forward and Leaved their Loved Ones Behind. To Achieve Something,U Must Lose Something. The Thing People Lose is the Time With Their BeLoved ones. This is the UnEnding Eternal Way of the world.

I don't necessarily hate good-byes but I prefer see you soons:) It would be nice that the people we care about stayed close, but I guess people need to grow and live and spread their wings no matter what their age is. And sometimes that is good too. I try to take it the best way and hope to see the person again.

Hello, Understand, a good bye is a part of our life, some times willingly or sometimes unwillingly. Its a circle of our life and we are a part of it. I also hate using goodbye or bye word in my conversation, so I normally write or say to "see you late" and that is the way I satisfay my inner feeling that I am not using word goodbye. I know its a cheat to myself when i am happy with it.

Hi Zelmarq! I only hate good-byes when I am having so much fun but if it is heartaches and pain that they bring, I would rather have them say their good-byes. But that is true, if we can just have all those people we like and let them stay with us for all time and there won't be anymore good=byes..then, I would be living in a beautiful world dear. However, that is never the case. Just like you have pointed out, someone will always leave. Sigh! And just like you have said, I, too need the same thing, to have more "hellos" from beautiful and kind people in our life. Take care always..God Bless!

Alas! Your wish could come out true. Life is like a flowing river and people keep on floating in it. Life is not stationary, so people keep on moving. You or I may wish that we should all stay together, but some of us, want to explore new areas and fields and they just move on and on. They perhaps do not care about others' sentiments, for them, achieving their goals, keep moving in pursuit of their goals is the only aim of life.

well, there is a time and place for everything,. a time for hellos and a time for goodbyes. sometimes goodbyes are good because it means that the person is moving on to a happier job, or a happier life, or to a nicer country, or to get married, to live with someone they love etc. so i guess when we take ourselves out of the centre of the equation it does not have to be a bad thing to say goodbye.

that is a very good point there squaretile! goodbyes aren't always associated with negative thoughts. could be a new beginning for someone else. anyway, that does not mean that you won't be seeing each other again. one day, you'll cross each other's paths again. one more day for hello and how are you and one day, good bye with a smile.

it is part of this life here in this fallen world. if our first parents had only obeyed the Lord we would not be suffering such good byes. but take heart, even then the Lord is faithful and gracious. He knows our failures, that is why when there is good bye, there are also hellos. like JESUS, HE is the hello of my life and our life too. though HE plead goodbye, the Holy Spirit is our hello nowadays. and sooner, the triune God will say hello to all of us.. though somehow, it is discouraging to hear some good byes. but it is the way it is. when Jesus has to say goodbye, He has to do it so that the Holy Spirit would be given and that everyone around the world would benefit. the same is true with our life. we often say good bye and even heard good bye from our friends ourselves. however, it is not always that way most of the time. life is a cycle of events, HELLOS and GOODBYES.....

there are so many things in life which aren't permanent. mostly come and go. it's always hearthwarming when you get to find someone you can trust and have fun with but it hurts when the good bye part is nearing. but that's life. atleast, we should be thankful that somehow in a certain moment of our life, we met a person who made us smile.
