"When you feel you’re alone,
cut off from this cruel world,
Your instinct’s telling you to run,
Listen to your heart. 
Those angel voices,
They’ll sing to you, 
They’ll be your guide back home. 
When life leaves us blind,
Love keeps us kind,
It keeps us kind. 
When you’ve suffered enough, 
And your spirit is breaking,
You’re growing desperate from the fight,
Remember you’re loved, and you always will be. 
This melody will bring you right back home. 
When life leaves us blind,
Love keeps us kind. 
When life leaves us blind,
Love keeps us kind”

Leaving is hard and so are goodbyes, but I think I’ve finally figured it out.

Leaving is hard and so are goodbyes, but I think I’ve finally figured it out.

I’ve got four days left, and then I’ll be gone. I want to spend every last minute of these last few days with the people that matter the most to me, but I know that that will be really hard. But I feel ready. I feel ready to leave. I’m ready for the goodbyes. The thing about goodbyes are that they’re hard, but they’re necessary. I hate not to say goodbye. I don’t like to leave things open ended. I need clarity. “See-ya”s work, but you can’t ignore me. I can’t have nothing. I need something. I need to know that we’re still okay when I leave. And if we’re not, I need to know that too. I just need to know. I’ve been ready to leave and I couldn’t figure out why. I thought that maybe I should have at least the slightest reservation to starting a new life, be the slightest bit nervous, be the slightest bit scared, or feel the slightest bit unprepared, but I just don’t. I finally figured out why. And listening to this song on repeat for the past couple of days is what made me understand. I finally get that this is why I’m ready to be gone. Every word of this song perfectly embodies my feelings of leaving, and so here it is:

You know I’m not one to break promises,
I don’t want to hurt you but I need to breathe.
At the end of it all, you’re still my best friend,
But there’s something inside that I need to release.
Which way is right, which way is wrong,
How do I say that I need to move on?
You know we’re heading separate ways.

And it feels like I am just too close to love you,
There’s nothing I can really say.
I can’t lie no more, I can’t hide no more,
Got to be true to myself.
And it feels like I am just too close to love you,
So I’ll be on my way.

You’ve given me more than I can return,
Yet there’s oh so much that you deserve.
There’s nothing to say, nothing to do.
I’ve nothing to give,
I must live without you.
You know we’re heading separate ways.

And it feels like I am just too close to love you,
There’s nothing I can really say.
I can’t lie no more, I can’t hide no more,
Got to be true to myself.
And it feels like I am just too close to love you,
So I’ll be on my way.

So I’ll be on my way.

And it feels like I am just too close to love you,
There’s nothing that I can really say.
I can’t lie no more, I can’t hide no more,
Got to be true to myself.
And it feels like I am just too close to love you,
So I’ll be on my way.

So I’ll be on my way.
So I’ll be on my way.
