My ever changing world

Living is Japan is awesome. However, there is one downfall: people are constantly coming and going. Since most foreigners (gaijin) work here on a visa, they aren't here for very long (usually 1-2 years). So, as I meet people and become friends, I know inevitably that we won't be together for long.

As time has passed, I have met some amazing women here in Japan. Woman that inspire me to be the best mother, wife, and friend possible. And having to see these women and their families leave, one after another, is starting to get to me.

It's getting harder and harder to meet new people and welcome them into my life knowing that in a year or so, we will have to part.

I know I chose the life I live. But saying goodbye is getting harder and harder.

I'm tired of all the goodbyes. I'm not good at goodbye.

As a civilian who is just here on one assignment and then going back home, I do not know how you military folks do it! I can understand what you are saying because I have met some amazing people here as well...and saying good bye one after the other is very difficult. I often wonder how you all manage.
