yes; if the thing you're going to get is something you desire, then the pursuit of the thing you've never had will be pseudo-"missed".
I thought I was going to say something, then I read the above, and now I'm just confused.Yes, maybe, hmmmm... ?
I think so. It seems that the very idea that you're "gonna get" something creates a sense of longing whether or not you actually receive it. This longing represents not a desire for the thing itself so much as an internal reflection of the attractiveness of waiting. While waiting conjures, at times, images of impatience, so too does it bring to mind the idea of expectation. Therefore, if you expect something, it becomes, to some degree, a part of you. The response is all too common, but never fails to leave us either joyously anticipating whatever it is, or dreading it, or being uncomfortable with the waiting in general. While I can't say for sure that that means you'd miss it if you never got it, I think it is safe to say that it evokes a bittersweet range of emotion, and could be the best (and possibly also the worst) part of the thing in its entirety.That's all I've got.
