In many ways, social media helps us to feel more connected with the people in our lives. Whether they live down the street or halfway across the world, using apps like Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter. You can always reach out to a relative to let them know how you’re doing, or to catch up with a friend from college. Sometimes that means a simple Happy Birthday shout out, or sharing a memory of a happy or a sad time. Sometimes it means letting them know that you can’t live without them. When we miss a friend, a family member, or that special someone, we want to tell them so—but how? You have to tap into your deeper nature and tell your boyfriend, girlfriend, sister, brother, father, or mother what’s in your heart.
However, it’s not always easy to know what to say! We weren’t all born poets and sometimes the words just don’t seem to come. To help you out, we’ve created some “idea starters” for ways to tell your loved ones that you miss them. So whether you’re messaging them separately in Messenger or posting a photo of you two together on Instagram there’s plenty of options here.
Hopefully these will give you the inspiration that you need!
