There’s almost no greater feeling in the world than reuniting with someone you miss.
It’s a feeling of completion, of wholeness, and of things being the way that they should be.
Whether we take the material worldview that it’s just a chemical reaction that’s going on in our brain, or we take the more existential understanding, that something deeper is happening, either way, the experience feels incredibly profound.
But that reunion would not taste so sweet if it were not for the longing that had occurred in the other person’s absence. This feeling has been expressed in innumerable ways throughout time eternal, and it’s the subject of novels, movies, and countless other works of art. And the sensation can be summed up in three little words; I miss you.
The following quotes will explore the phenomena of missing someone, and their variety, complexity and emotionality will make the profundity of our relationship with love and loss self-evident.
So, here are 27 quotes about I miss you.
Loneliness and missing someone
When we miss someone, particularly someone with whom we have spent a lot of time, it’s common that feelings of loneliness might arise. This is normal, humans are relational creatures, and a bond between people often causes people to define themselves in the other. So when the other person isn’t there, they feel like they’ve lost a part of themselves, and in such moments, we can feel lonely.
Missing someone’s physical presence
Relationships run much deeper than the moments we spend with each other physically. So it can be comforting to know that even though someone isn’t right there with you at that particular moment, a part of them is still present when you keep them in your mind.
Missing someone and letting go
As much as we may try to, we can’t control our emotions. Sometimes we need to accept the fact that we miss someone, despite the sense that it’s uncomfortable, and get on with our life. We can distract ourselves briefly, or even just attempt to appreciate the fact that we have had someone in our lives that we miss so much.
