No time for Goodbyes

I have an amazing family. I really do. My parents and grandparents especially have taught me so much over the years that has helped me to become the person I am today. One of these important lessons came from my dad. I speak to him, like I do my mom, once or twice a day. And he always has this thing about never saying goodbye to me at the end of a conversation… ever! He doesn’t let people say goodbye to him. If you do it without thinking, he either won’t respond or he’ll say something else in return, like have a good day or good night. Saying goodbye is a big issue for him.
And because of him it’s become an issue for me too. I’ve found that when I go to parties or when I’m with my brides from My Fair Wedding, I don’t say goodbye. As a result, I’ve been told that sometimes I come off as aloof or rude when I leave events without notice. I remember one time I attended a surprise 40th birthday party for a friend I hadn’t seen in years, and at the end of the night I left quietly. Mind you, I’d spent five hours mingling at the party. I just didn’t say goodbye.
Like my dad, I find the word “goodbye” to be very final. It doesn’t leave a door open to reconnect like “I’ll see you in a day” or “I’ll see you in ten years.” I’d rather not have that final moment with someone that I very much want to hear from again. And those people include my brides from My Fair Wedding as well as my clients-turned-friends.
Not saying goodbye to someone means you look forward to the next time you’re going to see that person. And for me personally, it almost forces me to mentally make plans to meet again because I feel like I owe my friends that next moment because I didn’t say goodbye. This way of thinking is subconscious and… maybe a little odd… but it works for me.
xo,
David

    2. Thus I have really so many works right now, atleast I have to take very good care of my parents. Because I am busy serving on the best wedding photographers that's why I have to give some time to my parents.

I keep telling people that when I'm a recognized celebrity, I will call you up and take you out for coffee.. So remember my name David..! Catia Madalena, the next big star... No goodbyes, but I'll meet you in a few years, my friend... ♥♪

  3. Great blog post - very personal and matter of fact. Although many swoop out unannounced, your reason for no goodbye is heartfelt. From childhood, I have always made sure to say goodbye its the last moment together. Probably weird that I've always done that, but it's always been a concern of mine. Maybe it's the fact that I was surrounded by older people with much older parents. Basically, this rambling is to thank you for another unique perspective on goodbyes.

  4. I agree with you and your father. I hate goodbyes as well and hate saying it even more. I just sent you a message to your info email for you and your team that I am hoping you get to read. I am getting married on March 3, 2012 and am having a huge dilemma from a horrible thing that keeps happening to me. I just keep my head up and pray. Thanks to you and your ideas that I read about or see on your show, I have accomplished a lot and have created a lot for my wedding saving me a lot. I am 38 with kids and my finance 39 with kids. We are trying to pay bills and pay for this wedding on our own. I really need your advice and help. I hope you can get back to me soon. Thanks so much for what you do.
    Love, Teresa Spikings Berwyn, Illinois

  5. Hi David,

    I always enjoy reading your posts and most of all, watching the amazing work you do on your show! It's truly humbling to see what you do for others and the emotions you bring out from each individual. You know that's a gift, right? I was wondering- I'm sure this isn't exactly the correct place to write this but I am a freelance makeup artist that would love to give back by doing makeup for your brides/bridesmaids on your show if there was ever an opportunity. I didn't know if there was someone else to contact about this matter. I am also apart of a non-profit, called Makeup For Cancer that will be launching in a few months and as a non-profit, we are planning on giving back by giving a cancer patients getting married a chance to get the full glam: photographer, videographer, makeup and hair done for them. I felt that I could share something like this with you! Thank you for always being a light unto others with the work that you do.

    Sincerely,

    Kim from Denver, Colorado

  6. I love this... it's almost like I now have permission to do something I've often felt was wrong - depart without saying goodbye. Lengthy goodbye rituals have always been uncomfortable for me but I've always thought that was a character flaw of mine. The reasoning offered by you & your father is exactly the point! Thank you ~ I'm totally borrowing this. =) ~Kristi

  12. Not saying goodbye leaves a void that can only be filled with that person’s or place’s presence to whom you owe a goodbye. I have a similar habit of not saying goodbyes to the websites I visit. On my weekends I revisit the websites I had visited during the week. This Sunday, all the websites I visited were related to “Buy Mba Dissertation” as I was looking for a professional writing service. I think I can safely say goodbye to those after my MBA is completed.
