There are so many people we meet in life it’s impossible to spend our time with all of them at once. Naturally as a result of this, we find ourselves in the situation where we are missing someone or thinking of the people not presently with us. While it’s not healthy to obsessively dwell on how much you miss someone, there are many beautiful quotes about missing someone that are worth some reflection.
Here are some my favorite quotes about missing someone:
