I’ve been thinking.
Why is “I miss you” a perfect excuse/reason/explanation to suddenly start talking again to someone you haven’t for so long? If we value someone so much, why would we give them a chance to miss us? Or why would they (or we) give us (ourselves) an opportunity to miss them? As a receiver of “I miss you”, are we obligated to reply back and talk to them again?
Why would we let them or ourselves miss someone or be missed?
