54 Most Sentimental Quotes about Missing a Friendship

We miss friendships almost every day of our lives. Friendships we had in high school, some fade away after graduation when we all go our separate ways. The same goes for college friendships. Some of your friends you may keep in contact with via phone calls or social media. But it still isn’t the same as having a face-to-face lunch.

As we go through life, we lose friendships because of death. That type of loss hurts the most because we can not connect with them at all. No text messages, no phone calls, and no social media. Childhood, work, or extended family friendships hurt to lose any of them, no matter the reason. These quotes are about missing your friends whether they are far away, no longer a part of your life, or are walking with the angels.

Our friendships become our connections and energy source in life. Without friends, we wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves. We wouldn’t have companionship or anyone to talk to. It would get lonely and boring with no one in our lives to call friends, have lunch with, go to a movie with, or hang out with.

Some of the strongest bonds of our lives are with our friends. We meet our friends in many places throughout our lives; school, work, family, or maybe just at a restaurant or beach. We also lose friends throughout our lives, and that heartbreak makes us stronger.

We grow and learn from friendships we had and lost. They teach us, and we teach them; we carry those lessons with us for the rest of our time on earth. We remember them, remember the fun times, remember their smile, but we know that it is no longer meant to be for whatever reason.
