College Days: Navigating the Heartache of Missing Mom Back Home

Missing mom is a big feeling that hasn’t faded just because I’ve started college. It’s like there’s a part of me that always wants her around, especially now when I’m facing the new challenges and adventures of college life. She’s my rock, the one who can make everything feel okay with just a hug or a few comforting words. Whether I’m feeling overwhelmed by exams, missing home, or just need some life advice, she’s the first person I think of.

Feeling the Gap: When Mom’s Not Around

Here at college, missing mom hits me in different ways. Sometimes, it’s wishing she were here to share in my new experiences or celebrate my academic achievements. Other times, it’s needing her comfort when I’m feeling lost in this new environment. It’s strange; even though I’m becoming more independent every day, there’s this part of me that always misses her presence, her voice, and the way she makes everything seem alright with just a few words.

When I’m having a hard day, the first thing I wish for is her hug. There’s something about the way she wraps me up that makes all the worries fade away, even if it’s just for a moment. It’s like she has this superpower to make everything better without even trying.

Missing Mom: More Than Just Being There

It’s not just about missing being around my mom. It’s more about missing the feelings of safety, love, and understanding she provides, especially now as I navigate the ups and downs of college life. When she’s not here, I find myself trying to recreate bits of that comfort, like playing songs we both love or wrapping myself in the sweater she knitted for me, especially during long study nights.

When she’s not here, I try to find little bits of that comfort in other things, like listening to music we both like or wearing her favorite sweater. But it’s never quite the same as having her actually here.
