Why is LOVE a four letter word?
Why are so many people afraid to say I love you? Or maybe we just neglect saying it, thinking that the people we love already know, or we’ll get them the next time we see them or speak with them. This is a question that has been bothering me over the past year of change.
This morning I was reading a post by jmgoyder (http://jmgoyder.com/2012/08/23/love-story-88-saying-i-love-you/). She is quickly becoming one of the people I look for in the morning when I’m going through the blogs I follow. She has a beautiful post today about saying I love you in a romantic relationship, one of the many lovely and heartfelt posts on her blog.
Think about it.
Have you missed the opportunity to say I love you recently? Maybe you told your children, or even your partner, but did you tell your best friend? Or did you just miss someone whose company you always enjoy?
Now ask yourself this question; If you never had the opportunity to say it to this person again would you be sorry?
Okay now go say it for crying out loud! Write an email, make a phone call, have coffee and give them a hug and a big I love you when they are leaving. Yeah, I know, you’ll get a few odd looks. Who cares? Odd looks are so much better than regrets!
Love you all : ) Thanks for the reminder, Julie.
