#EngTips: Ways to say ‘goodbye’

Sometimes, it is really hard to say goodbye, whether to a routine, a friend, a lover, or a group of people you didn’t know would miss. As the title suggests, we will talk about ways to say “goodbye”. We know how hard it is to say goodbye and we will try to help you out!

We are not going to tell you how to say “goodbye” to someone you will meet again tomorrow or sometime next week; you already know how to. Instead we are going to give you some tips on how to deal with a much harder “goodbye”.

The hardest goodbye is when we do not know if or when we will ever meet again, especially if the memories are unforgettable. How do you usually deal with such goodbye?

Here is our first tip: be present.

It is okay to savor the very last moments, but do not think of the memories you shared or what will happen after the goodbye. Be here and now, emotionally, physically, and mentally. Do what you usually do until the time to say goodbye comes.

Second, end it on a positive note.

Instead of crying your feelings out, try smiling that bursts to a tear. It helps the last memories you shared become beautiful.

Third and last, do not try to prevent the inevitable.

Do not prolong the goodbye. Do not try to make them stay. It is going to make it harder for you to accept reality.

Bonus tips:

After the goodbye, do not try to forget the memories. Cherish them instead. Believe that the memories help you to become better.

Well, I guess it is time for me to say goodbye to you, Fellas! Thank you for such a beautiful year! But do not forget that we are still going to be here next year.
