I wish it was easier to tell people that you miss them. I wish that it didn’t have to be humiliating or creepy or embarrassing or scary. I wish that they would always say “I miss you too.”
Instead it seems like it’s better to not mention it. Or to not talk at all. But not talking and not feeling aren’t the same thing. It’s just too bad it’s always so one-sided.
