  • I've spent the last 2 years of my life getting to know these wonderful people, and a whole host of awesome others. most of them are staying together for another year.
    But devastatingly I'm starting a new chapter, I'm leaving for a year, and when I come back most of the people I have become so close to will be gone, I'm struggling, how do I say goodbye, when it's the very last thing in the world I want to do?

    I think I've worked out how to manage, I guess it depends on how I look at the situation, sure, if I say I've only just met you and now we may never meet again, yeah that's upsetting. But how about thinking about this: think about the vastness of the world we inhabit, the billions of people that have lived upon this Earth, how lucky I was to have seen you in the street, never mind having been able to spend 2 years with you.

    "Of all the people, on all the worlds, in the immensity of existence.
    I was lucky enough to have known you if only for the briefest of instants." - anon
