20 Absence Quotes For Helping You Deal With Absent Loved Ones: Inspirational Words of Wisdom

20 Absence Quotes

Be inspired by our collection of absence quotes. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder… Classic quote, right? Everyone has heard it. Does it make it any easier? The answer is a solid no! The pain that’s left feels like someone has stuck a dagger right through your heart. The heartache left behind is one of the most brutal emotions going. It comes with a feeling of helplessness and longing. Understanding those feelings is the first step to acceptance!

I have been through this kind of trauma more times than I would like to admit. I have been blessed to have many loved people around me in the past, but life moves on, and we can’t always control the direction, so learning to deal with life’s curve balls is essential.

Learning to deal with the absence of a loved one is the only way to make yourself feel a little better. No matter what anyone says to you, you will grieve those first few weeks and most likely shed a few tears but believe me when I say there is absolutely nothing wrong with crying. It is the body’s natural defense against emotional trauma. Trying to avoid it is only going to make it worse over time. The best thing you can do is grab the bull by the horns and face the abandonment/absence head-on.

Making sure your pain doesn’t become lifelong depression is the most important thing here. Allowing your mind this time to accept that the person you love is gone is critical. Take a few days off work and go and do some well-needed soul-searching. If the absent person has been around you for an extended period of time, you may need to discover how to be alone with your own company again. You can do it! It just takes time.

Remember, time is the best healer of them all, so long as you respect what your mind tells you and don’t try to bury these emotions.
