I Love You
I love you….how sweet those words are. More than sweet, they are kind, gentle and probably the most longed for words ever. Just like the singer Chris De Burgh says in his song, “Be strong and learn to say the words ‘I love you’. ” His lyrics also say, “There are those who think that love comes with a lifetime guarantee, But we know from those around us, that this may not always be”. Too many people take love for granted. They do not verbally express their love. Yes, actions are better than words but in some cases it sure is nice to hear.
Some people do use the words I Love You too loosely and it seems to lose its value. Just be sincere when saying it. Most of us can pick up on it if your fake and just throwing it around like an expression or saying. If you say it because you think you should, or because it’s expected—and you’re not there yet—it will come across as insincere.
It is nerve-wracking to tell someone that you love them if you’re going to wait anxiously for their response. If you truly feel it, then say it with no expectations of a response. Your intention can be to tell the person how you feel, with the hope of making them happy and showing them that they are valued. So say what you feel, and if they love you, too, they’ll let you know in their own way and in their own time.
Saying I love you to someone can mean many things to many different people. Sometimes for family, some for lovers and some for friends. But no matter what the intent, just knowing you mean something to someone else usually will warm their heart. Of course if you’re a stalker then you might just creep someone out by saying it. You’d be really surprised on how many people would be thrilled to hear it and replay it over and over in their mind. Not everyone gets to hear those sweet words on a regular basis.
Just a thought for you to keep in mind as you make it through your day. Oh, and I love you!
