Do I Miss Anyone?

I saw a parting that happened between two of my friends. They were close each other, and I asked one of them whether she would miss her. Her answer was so direct that it made me think about missing someone. When do I miss someone? Who could I miss?

Miss
feel regret or sadness at no longer being able to enjoy the presence of
(New Oxford American Dictionary)

After thinking for a couple of hours, I felt it would be difficult for me to miss someone. So far, I don’t want to miss and will try to avoid missing anyone when & after I am parted with someone. There are three possible reasons I came up with.
  • I’ve lived in a fairly figurative context in which a practical company has less meaning.
  • I’m or have to be too busy to miss someone. I don’t want to allow myself to muck around with missing someone.
  • I’m afraid of a fact of mentally leaning on someone who could make me miss them. Those reliance could be a sign of mental deterioration, and I don’t want to let them go. I’m so weak that I must be very cautious not to give any chances to what can possibly impair the mental stability.
Each of these can’t be an independent factor; it’s a mixture of these, or maybe they are really same being described in different ways. All of them are based on my weakness because it’s possible to say that I escaped from a difficulty of this real world into a metaphorical world. Anyway, as Eric Clapton says,
I must be strong and carry on
'Cos I know I don't belong here in heaven
