How can you miss what you never had?

I miss a loving mother.

I miss a caring extended family.

I miss feeling safe and calm.

I miss feeling included and seen.

I miss my health.

I miss feeling surrounded by friends.

I miss the casual innocence of happiness.

But how can I miss these things? I never had them to lose, they never went away, because they were never mine.

If you cannot miss what you never had, then why do I feel so sad?
