Just a short one today:
“I love you”
Three little words that are often said too much or not enough, but never the right amount. But they’re still important nonetheless.
It can be difficult to tell the difference between love and lust, or infatuation, when you’re in the middle of the relationship. I know this from personal experience. I thought I was in love with all of my boyfriends, but it wasn’t until I met my husband that I realised that it was anything but. Yet, I still told them (at the time) that I loved them, and more often than not they said it back.
At the same time, it’s important to tell each other that you are in love. Voicing the emotions helps with self-esteem building. My husband and I say “I love you” every day, at least once if not more. Before we go to work, when we get home, before bed, when we wake up… It’s not something that we need to say, we know that we love each other, but we still do it all the same.
It helps when one of us is feeling down. By hearing those three little words, we know that everything will be all right.
