This chapter presents two main arguments: First, the impact of separations on self-development and the experience of being apart is continued and is created throughout life and is not fixed in infancy. A second argument claims that this impact is constructed and established through processes that occur by language use. The chapter contains a short review of Freud, Klein, and Winnicott theories regarding separations, Wittgenstein's contribution to the examination of separation and separateness using language and will propose a connection between psychoanalysis and the philosophy of language through a study case of Shira, a six-year-old girl and through discussion of the novel “The Lying Life of Adults” by Elena Farrante. It will be demonstrated how separation experiences are shaped in both cases and how interpretive change of parting events is possible through language mechanisms. Wittgenstein suggests focusing on how things are said, how language functions in different mental states, and how meaning is given, and in what context. This model places language as a significant factor in shaping reality, the self, and social constructionism
