Longing For A Person and Missing The Feeling: Two Confusing Sentiments
Thinking of someone of special meaning is fleeting, and at the same time, leaves a tug of emotional uncertainty inside the heart. It is surprisingly confusing, always. We tend to unknowingly jumble these two things: missing and longing for the person, and missing and longing for the feeling. These two are mistakenly thought as exactly the same, but these are wholly different. To ask why do we feel like that is inevitable, and it’s true. Confusing and mind-blowing, and we barely receive answers.
Do you yearn for it because the person is absent, or you long for it because the feeling is already non-existent? Being drawn to a fresh sensation of a newly-born love is overwhelming, with the look of ocean-deep eyes, mesmerizing exchanges of smiles, and heartwarming conversations brought to life. It’s priceless, the feeling of being a witness to that affection; the feeling of being the recipient of that affection. On the other side, to long for the reason behind that elation, which is the person — is complicated and delightfully confusing, too.
Is that the totality of the person you miss, that person’s mere existence, and the way that person presented himself? Or do you long for receiving that affection? Just the thought of the name constantly ringing in your ears makes you have that stirring ache at the roots of your heart, that lingers for a long time, with a wish to remake the memories buried in our minds.
