Willing to express clearly that someone is fed up with something, using the adverb "enough", I couldn't discern the difference between the following variants and therefore I can't tell which of them are correct from a grammatical point of view (maybe they don't even mean the same):

  1. I've had enough missing her! I'm wrapping it up!
  2. I've had enough with missing her! I'm wrapping it up!
  3. I've had enough of missing her! I'm wrapping it up!
  4. I've had it with missing her! I'm wrapping it up! (does this phrase have the same meaning as №№. 1, 2, 3?)

Or, maybe I should have inserted the pronoun "it" after "had" in №№ 1, 2, 3 (like "I've had it enough...)?

The structure is 'have had enough (of somebody/something)'. So, you can perfectly say/write 'I've had enough of missing her'.


'I've had it with missing her' is also correct. You can use the idiom have had it with something/someone to express that you'are not enthusiastic about dealing with the same situation.

See Cambridge Dictionary

  • Thank you. Is any appreciable distinction in the meaning of "I've had enough of missing her" and "I've had it with missing her" to be drawn out?

  • @Eugene In your context no there's none.
