Human beings find it difficult enough to think about leaving someone and very difficult to consider being away from someone special. We have trouble saying goodbye because it seems there are so many things we want to say, so many feelings that have never been expressed. But perhaps the most difficult part of life involves being separated from an individual that we feel truly at home with. This is when we begin to understand the real meaning of missing someone. We can often think about the feeling ahead of time and dread the moment when we say so long. But we won’t really know the pain of separation until we have to write or say, “I miss you.”
Fortunately, people from all walks of life experience this emotional time. They often come up with words of wisdom or suggestions that can help us in our difficult moments. If we have an overpowering sense of belonging to someone or belonging in some familiar place, we can find some solace in the fact that many people have been in this same situation and survived. Sure it is tough, but it may help us focus on each day we are with the people we love or in the place we need to be. Others have suggested that we have to remember the people and places, forcing ourselves to smile just when we are about to say, “I miss you so much.”
One of the things that we can do when we miss someone is avoid blurting out just anything. Of course, we want to tell that person our true feelings. But we have to consider that calling or writing to say, over and over, that we miss them might cause them more sadness and pain than we would like. Patience is sometimes the best way to go when we truly miss someone. A few words, carefully chosen, may be all we need to let another individual know, “I miss you.”
