March 6 – absence

☆  absence  不在


Have you heard of the saying, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” This means that when someone is away, you miss them, and long for their return. This is a good saying for people in a long-distance relationship for example.

However, there’s also the exact opposite saying too! “Out of sight, out of mind.” Meaning that once there is physical distance between you and the other person, you forget about them. This can be good if there was a break up, but not for a long-distance relationship!

So, I guess depending on the reason for the absence, you can choose which idiom you want to use. Ha ha!
