Longing is a desire. It is the feeling of craving for something that cannot be fulfilled. It can be strong and persistent. Days might feel infinite as long as you are longing to see someone you love when that person is far away.
Longing is a blend of primary emotions of love and happiness or sadness and depression. Yet different kinds of longing can also involve higher order emotions.
Desires to start a new life sometimes imply a transient longing – especially when we long for the unattainable.
If you desire love; give yourself love. If you yearn for respect; treat yourself respectfully. If you desire quietness; give yourself a peaceful space.
Simply, give yourself what you’re longing for.
