|Reviews for It's Hard to Say Goodbye|
| Guest chapter 1 . 4/20/2015
To write something like this is truly harder than what many think. What you've done is truly amazing.
I know the chances of you reading these reviews get slimmer as the days go by, but this one of the few ways we can express that we have felt some thing similar.
Love is a fickle thing, it leaves us pondering, bawling or empty. It comes in many form and many ways. Although I've never found the real thing myself, we can all hope and wish on ever star that we will find the one who'll make you feel complete. This "Harry" might not be the one, and he a blind to not even try, but there will always be someone else, ready to pick up the pieces, I can only hope that you will allow this person to come close enough to you.
Maybe one day if you haven't forgotten us, you can lets us know. But until then, keep searching, and don't stop, even when it's bleak.

I won't say I am sorry... I won't say there will be a happy ending...
But I will say this... Don't torture yourself.. Instead - let HIM torture you. Because love is a beautiful thing.. Even if it hurts... Don't loose hope - cause maybe, just maybe, there is someone out there waiting for you. Or maybe.. will come running to you...
I hope that you are happy... where-ever you are. God help you. I didn't say these things out of pity.. I said this because I know how it feels to be lonely... And how it feels when you think no one loves you...
Even though the reasons are different, the feelings are same..
This is life. There are difficult times in this life. The hurt is replaced by happiness, soon. So, never think that you are miserable, instead, just wait for the right time...

Well done. It hit home becuase thats what has happened to me but istead of me moving away the military took him away so I could mend what was left of my heart. I wasnt waiting for ever thats for sure.
I do hope you have it worked out and you come back your writing is great.

I'm not going to give you empty words, you've heard it all.
I'm just going to say I hope you found someone different, someone who can make you smile and laugh and cheer you up when you thought only HE could.
I hope you ended up happy and I know (god knows I know) that it hurts and numbs and burns and ACHES in an empty way all at once but I know you'll get through.
And yeah, life isn't like the movies. It's scary and hard and I'm as terrified as you but things will look up.
And no, you didn't get that fairy take, Hollywood ending...
But I'm betting that you'll find something even better.
Lots of love, Nives (BadWolfWhoWaited)

That's so sad. . . it just reminds me that life is imperfect, because whenever you try to do something right, everything goes wrong. I wish you the best of luck. Seeing as I am an immature girl who hasn't dared to love yet, I can't give you any advice. . . but you will be in my prayers tonight.

omg! so this is it!

I'm sorry. I really don't know what to say, but I'm sorry.
I never really experienced being in love. I mean, I had my occasional puppy love and crushes, but I never had been IN love. I don't know what you feel, and I don't think I really understand, but I want you to know that your story really touched me. It struck a nerve somewhere in my heart.
I just wish you'll find someone you could be with. The guy you were talking about might NOT be Harry, he could just be another Ron or David. I hope you come back in writing if you ever find the one you really want to be with.
I hope you are happy, wherever you are.

I don't know if you still read reviews here anymore since it has been close to 6 1/2 years but I will still comment on the small possibility that you are reading this now.
I stumbled upon this fic and I can honestly say that you are a great writer and if ever went into journalism or writing novels you would succeed no doubt about it. Your writing brought tears to my eyes, telling me that your story touched me. You were able to bring me into your world and let me feel the pain that you are/stil in.
Since it has been so long since you wrote this, I wondered how your thesis went and if you were able to enjoy the experience you got to have traveling around the world.

Wonderful story. I have read the other and they were equally as heartbreaking. I hope that you return and begin writting again. I would enjoy reding more of your ideas. Goodluck.

This is why im so afraid of falling in love...
| Laila chapter 1 . 4/1/2008
This has happened to me, not in the marriage sense so my torture won't last forever...
I wish you all the luck in thailand- and you're already there...
And I don't always believe in happy endings... because reality is far more ironic, and cruel.
To all those in your position out there- My heart goes out to you.

wow. this was so sad and its even more sad to know that this was happening to you. i guess you never did come back, but maybe you found your happily ever after with someone else. someone fantastic who you met in thialand. if you ever do read this or return, i hope that you write a story about your happy ending.

Good luck Parker. I know what it's like, somewhat. Hope you've found love, though, somewhere, somewhen.

Goodness, that was completely and utterly lovely. The writing was amazing and I could really tell the emotions were there. I think thats what seperates good writing from breathtaking writing. And this, I must admit, was truly breathtaking.
