IT HURTS TOO MUCH TO SAY GOODBYE!!!

I'm really not sure where to start with this post, and I'm so sad that it's all coming to a close. I recently celebrated how significantly this platform has improved my life, and now I'm saying goodbye.

Because I don't know the life I'll be returning to, my eyes are currently sore from attempting to hold back tears. I may not know, but I have a vague notion that I would lead a life marked by hardship and suffering. My reign of privilege and independence may be coming to an end, and as Hive is my primary source of income, I have no method of providing for myself once again.

I have published an essay about a job I used to have in 2018 for which I received a pay of $20 per month, thus neither I nor any of the other countrypeople here had anything to gain by living in my nation. This is a small portion of the monthly income I receive from Hive. Going to a life of such poverty is unthinkable to me.

For myself and many others, Hive has evolved into a home, so saying goodbye this soon feels more real than anything else. In really, it is death for me because Hive gave me a new life, and now my life without Hive is actually dying.

I will miss my friends from this platform, as well as supporting and guiding beginners. I'm still unsure of how I would feel if I didn't have to open my phone to check my Hive Account, if I didn't curate material, if I didn't leave comments, or even if I didn't have any plans for publishing content.

I am aware that after this, I will probably not use Discord in any way because the major reason I have been using it is because of Hive, and now that I am saying goodbye, that reason is no longer valid. I would miss our little private channel conversation with @prayzz and @bruno. I will also miss the ghost @mahirabdullah, who masks his voice and face.

I would miss having to devour @josehany's delicious food, her makeup, and her lovely face's contents. I would miss having to read the financial and thought-provoking information that my mentor @josediccus provides and definitely, I would miss comments from my engagement knight @hopestylist. I would miss the little time I spend listening to music from the Afritunes and Hive Open Mic communities.

Although I am already studying to become a software engineer, it would be a whole new level of hardship to pay for a data subscription. I may have less food on my table, but my personal life is a mess without Hive. In this community, I can relax, let out my suffering, watch mind-clearing media, and, most importantly, get the money I need to organize my life.

I don't think I'll ever leave my parents' house until the strike is finished because I need to find any way to feed myself, save money, and get my life in order. Most importantly, I would need to work on my self-esteem because I am saying goodbye to one of my most crucial supports. I need to stay believing in myself and keep myself strong on the journey that lies ahead.

Just a quick note to those of you who are reading this: after this weekend, your life will be very different from how it is now, so hold on to what you have. To the newcomers, it would be no different, but to those of us who have been coming regularly for at least two to three years, it would mark a significant change in our lives.

With the amount of financial stuff I've read, I think I may end up succeeding, but I would continue to feel empty or unfulfilled every day. I have no idea how long it will take for this hole in my chest to close, but every day I will think about Hive and try to find a way to bring it back to life after I finish my software engineering education. I have to save hive again because it has saved me.

I'm going to probably look for people who have insights into how Hive actually operates, conduct study into how Hive was created, and keep working until Hive is back, even if that means creating another chain. I won't stop working until Hive is rebuilt because of the potential it possesses to improve lives and alter them. Nothing is going to stop me from achieving this goal in life!

Wow, you got me scared with your post title😂😂😂
Dang! This guy just pulled me out of the track this morning but I am calm now knowing that it's a contest and not what's gonna happen biko😂😂😂😂

Oh my goodness, 😇....wow

Hive has brought lots of wonderful peeps across your path, paved the way for financial freedom, and still counting. Saying goodbye is like kissing financial struggle or poverty and the likes to many😂😂

I pray this platform stays as long as we all need it👌👏🥰

How will you not miss Hive? Tell me! 😂😂😂 You be boss here on your own. Handling the newbies initiative sef, na something.
These things would be missed and to say that Hive is my primary source now, what will happen thereafter?

Haa! Hive should not go like that. Because of Hive, I became independent and can survive. I have been addicted to meeting you guys here and leaving will make it worse.

The hurt will not go away like that because it would be so sad. I wake up to open my Hive account, and not seeing this happen, will affect me so hard.

Your post is really emotional 🥺

Man this is a great write up with a lot of suspense to the very end. I know it’s it a story, but it kinda really felt like a goodbye message until the very last part where you mentioned the weekend engagement prompt. I guess I should’ve known to check the weekend engagement prompts for the week the minute I saw it was in the weekend experience community and that it was actually Saturday(weekend today).

I can’t imagine that goodbye haven being true. Thank God! Have a great weekend man and give us a heads up next time. Can’t be out here scaring people like that.😌

Before I started writing the article, I had to set my mood to the fact that Hive would be ending and wrote it exactly like the way I would write it if it were to be true.

It looks like I did well on that 😁.

It's a very nice idea. Instead of leaving Hive for some reason it is more like Hive went down and it's a temporal good-bye. I like the idea. It got me thinking about how it is as well my main source of income. If I don't have it, I might as well go and look for one of those 20$ jobs where I'll be squeezed like a grape until I'm a shell of my former self.

Yeah it’s a temporary good bye. I can’t live with the fact that Hive won’t exist any longer. Plus I can’t go back to the world I lived in before Hive.

Some people will not be missed here and I am proudly one of those people😂💔
Meanwhile, I already knew this was clickbait and has nothing to do with you leaving hive😂

Where you wan go leave hive? If you ever do, just send me your Master, active, and posting keys. That will do and you can then say goodbye to hive. I will be happy to miss having you here, and I will take care of your wallet and account well for you 😂😂🚶🏻‍♀️

@iskawrites it's not me oooo😂 The Lord is helping our brother. I'm just imagining if I didn't write this contest just yet, I would really panic thinking Hive is coming to an end. Just thinking about this is making me so scared, I would really lose it cos I know what Hive means to me. But thank God, it's not real.

Immediately I saw that you tagged my name, I was not sure why so I clicked on the notification and it brought me here and the first thing I looked at was the community you had posted it too and I took a very good breath, lol 😂😂, I just knew it was the weekend engagement questions.

Despite the fact that I knew it was fictional, I still almost had tears in my eyes reading through this, you just got me when you said you were going to save Hive just like Hive saved you, that only goes to show that you truly have a bond and it's really beautiful.

If Hive was to really close up this weekend, I will surely miss replying to all your amazing post and also your intriguing ideas and I will love to have your number so I can keep in touch with you. I know we are not that close but I still won't want to let that tiny bond go.

Reading your article made me so poignant...although I knew it's a fictional content but it sounds so real and it only makes me wonder o. What if this was real??

Imagination sucks yeah!

ASUU has been messing people up real bad honestly...After my ND programme I wanted to enroll for university of Lagos but seeing this strike...omo...it seems I would stay forever in school...so I was wondering if to finish up my program.

Government is not making things a bit cool for the youths but I know that no one depends on them at all.

Hive can't go now😩

Wow. I was just wondering what it would feel like not having you here. Just joined the block chain and was recommended you and this? No na. Anyways, I'm glad it was just a gig. What's new? Cause I'm new.
