...that absence makes the hearts grow fonder.
If you asked me a year ago, I'd have convinced you otherwise - that absence makes the hearts grow fonder towards other people! I'm extremely (and at times, abnormally) attached to my closest friends - and any absence from them would probably make me miserable because I'd miss them way too much.
But lately, I've started to sort-of, kind-of believe that absence - and distance - from your closest friends perhaps do make the hearts grow fonder. It's strange because this change in feelings has creeped up to me so fast, it's making my head spin.
