You must live, not simply exist

“Sometimes I feel like saying “I miss you” is more poignant than saying “I love you.” We throw the word “love” around a lot—talking about food, TV shows, songs, people, anything. But saying you miss someone is so much more meaningful. To acknowledge that there’s a void there and that there is one specific person who can fill it. I don’t know. That seems more profound to me. It feels more like love than what we’ve made love out to be.”
