Everytime someone is going to part for a certain amount of time, I tend to get rather quiet, moody, and depressed up until their departure, and then right after they leave I feel so lonely and regret not being more friendly. People think that I'm mad at them or something but I feel like I just don't know how to handle goodbyes. I think maybe it came from when I was younger. I'd get so attached to friends when they were with me and having to say goodbye felt like such an emotional shock. A couple times my friends visited me for a week or so and the day they left they had gone before I even woke up. And other times I think I never really acknowledged the fact that they eventually did have to leave so I was always enjoying myself 100% until I had to face the truth. Two weeks ago when I moved out of my old place that I lived for a year, I only said goodbye to one roommate and it was because he was there at the time. I had been pretty distant from them for a month or so leading up to the move. They were probably the best roommates I had ever had, but I just felt really weird about leaving The girl I'm dating is leaving to go to college a couple hours away and I'm wanting to distance myself from her as much as possible. We try to talk about her leaving but it feels as if it's impossible for me to access those feelings. When she's not around I feel like I'm going to miss her and I feel lonely, but when she's actually here I feel like I resent her or something. I know I'm going to regret being mean to her. Maybe I feel like we won't keep in touch, because I hardly keep in regular touch with old friends. It's really frustrating to not have control over your emotions. Anyone else have this problem?
