"I felt the goodbye when we hugged. The strength in his arms as if that was the last bit of him he had to give me. I realized as I was walking away that in holding on as tight as he did -- was really just him letting go." -Hollie Seals
"You didn't have to treat me the way that you did but I didn't have to go along with it. There's no excuse for what you did to me and there's no excuse for why I continue to let it happen. So the only thing that can make it any better is for me to just move on."
"The hardest recovery is from the heartache of another kind. I'm still drying my own tears, getting over my own fears in life. So I wanna make sure this time, that I'm strong enough...to give it my all." - Athena Cage
"I guess it's gonna have to hurt; I guess I'm gonna have to cry and let go of some things I've loved to get to the other side. I guess it's gonna break me down: like falling when you try to fly. It's sad, but sometimes moving on with the rest of your life starts with goodbye." - Carrie Underwood, "starts with goodbye"
