How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
– Winnie the Pooh
It can hurt badly when you’re missing someone you love. For many, missing someone can be seen as a negative experience but these quotes tell us that missing someone isn’t something we need to dread.
It’s heavy but if we learn how to find our way through it, missing someone can be a form of love. It becomes a feeling we can manage though it makes our lives harder but it will teach us which relationships are worth keeping (no matter what) and which are worth leaving behind.
Here’s a collection of 31 quotes to express how much you miss that special someone.
