Short Post: Hello and Goodbye + Giveaway Winner

I hate it when I get left behind. I don't like it when people say hello and then goodbye the next day. I don't like the feeling of people coming and going. But the sad reality is, everyone will come and go in your life. It is rather unfortunate, but that is how life is. People can't stay beside you forever. At some point, you have to let go of them.

Sometimes I do suffer from what people call separation anxiety. I get easily attached to people that it breaks my heart when one or the other has to go. Saying goodbye isn't really my forte. But we have to accept that life will always be like this: a series of hellos and goodbyes. Goodbye doesn't really mean the ending or the closing of your relationship or of your life, it is just a signal that there is another hello that awaits you.

  1. I had to deal with a lot of good-byes when I was younger due to my job. People would come and go and get transferred left and right. It broke my heart, as it was always the people closest that had to leave. It is hard, but it is a fact of life. You look super cute dear and I hope that you have a good week!

    1. I know how you feel. I really hate it when people I am close to have to say to goodbye to me. But that is reality. We just have to look on the bright side of it.

  5. What a lovely post! I'm the same way. I get attached to people. It's hard to accept changes. We all move along different paths of life. However, some people you're happy theyre gone. HaHaHa Love those cupcakes and tea cups. Pretty post!

    1. I know what you mean by "some people you're happy they're gone." These are people that should not be involved in your life in the first place! Haha! When they say goodbye, I feel relieved instead of sad.

  14. I agree with you that goodbyes are difficult. But I do think that the older you are, the less friend you'll have. Because everyone will have to choose their own environment that support their job/carreer.

    1. It is sad but true. The older you get, your priorities change. Less time for friends and night outs and more time for work and family. I guess your family will ultimately be the friends you will keep and who will stay for life.

  18. I also get really hung up on saying goodbye or drifting away from people that I've been friends with for a long time. But these things happen and I'm learning how to deal with it better. Btw, I love your high-low dress and how you paired it with a denim vest. I'll have to steal that idea for the summertime:)

    1. I know how you feel. It is most heart breaking for friends you've known for so many years. But we all have to learn how to handle this situation because it is inevitable. Haha! Go ahead. I don't have patent for this style anyways.

  26. It is very hard to let go! However, sometimes we must. There's always a reason. Sometimes we don't understand, but then someone else comes and fills that void. Those cupcakes look so good.

  29. I'm definitely trying out that place in Trinoma! :D

    This reminds me of a lot of goodbyes that has happened this 2013. And by that I really do mean those that have romantic inclinations. I've been dating and going out and I get so attached sometimes that every goodbyes just takes away a piece of my heart. I'm the kind of person who loves appreciating even the simplest thing that is why I find beauty in every person I encounter.

    My 2014 started right, I guess. Cheers to a better year ahead of us and more things to learn and experience. Happy New Year! :)
