The Truth About Missing You

They said that it would come in waves, missing you. They insisted that although the skies would be dark that the storm would pass. They weren’t entirely wrong.

Missing you does come in waves, but they’re tsunami waves. Crashing down on me, leaving me breathless. When the storm hits, the skies do get dark, just as everyone promised that they would. But what they didn’t say was that every time the skies went dark and the waves crashed down, they would devastate. Obliterating all the progress that had been made since the last storm. I would be left to once again pick up the pieces of the mess that’s left.

It’s there every day. The dull ache in my chest. It’s in everything that I do from the moment I wake up until the moment I’m asleep. I feel it nagging at me, begging to be acknowledged. Everywhere I go I’m reminded that you’re no longer a part of me, and every time I’m reminded it’s as though my entire world is crashing down. You see, the truth is that I saw a future with you beyond just a partner, but a best friend. And to lose both of those parts of you ripped my heart out of my chest.

When they ask about you, I smile. I tell them that today will be a better day for me. And that next week will be easier. But the truth about missing you, is that it’s only gotten harder, and I don’t think I’ll ever stop.


Everyone fears change. Why? Because it’s uncomfortable; and very few people in this world like to be uncomfortbale. Myself included. But have you ever stopped to look at the people around you that embraced the uncomfortable? In every case that I can think of in my own experiences, it payed off. These situations are learning experiences, and they are growing experiences. You see, although change can be scary, and it may feel uncomfortable, it can also be the best thing that ever happens to you if you allow it to. Our society has gotten oh so good at settling. We’ve taught and been taught that it’s okay to give up as long as you gave it your absolute best, and that sometimes this life is just unfair to us. No. Wrong. Never give up. Never stop pushing. Every last one of us is given the same 24 hours in a day, and if you choose wisely what to do with it, I guarantee you won’t think that this life is unfair. This world owes you nothing. Earn it. Work for it. You don’t know whats right on the other side of that comfort zone. It may be everything that you’ve ever wanted. So take the leap of faith, get comfortable with being uncomfortable, and although it might be scary, take that first step. Your dreams depend on it.
