The loss of someone close leaves an emptiness that never goes away. With time, there is a sense of acceptance, but never a moment when the heart stops missing their presence. Life just isn’t quite the same without them.
It is said, “You don’t miss the water until the well runs dry.” This is true in our relations with others. Time spent together can become routine and taken for granted. This life is temporary. Every hello has a goodbye.
Take a minute now and then to remind yourself that this someone close to you won’t always be there, nor will you. It will help you remove the “routine” from any situation and appreciate someone more.
