Yearning


“Restriction generates yearning. You want what you cannot have.” -Portia deRossi

longing, craving, want, need

Y is for Yearning

If you are part of a military family you know only too well the feeling of longing when a loved one is deployed. All involved deal with sadness, worry, and wanting that military member home. When someone we love dies it leaves a deep pain in our heart and we yearn for how things used to be. I know I will forever yearn for my parents. The winter this year has been extremely cold and long which has left many of us wanting the warmer weather of spring.

Not only do I long for my parents but I also yearn for my children and grandchildren who live far away (my son and son-in-law are in the Navy and both live in other states). I have missed so many holidays, celebrations, and my grandchildren growing up.

Yearning can sometimes cause depression. It can also be a motivator in accomplishing a goal.

What do you yearn for?

Synonyms of yearning – craving
Antonym of yearning – disinterest

A song about yearning…..

  1. Aww…I know how this feels. My dad was in a transferable job and many a times due to our schooling we couldn’t shift with him. Those few months apart, me and sis would yearn for him – the evening tea, walks and badminton.Aditi, A2Z survivor
