do you ever wonder how those around you show their love? most of us know there are love languages. although, the love languages segregate between common gestures usually in romantic relationships, and each language is a way to show how they love another. these also can be different as a recipient and giver. but what about relationships in general? how do you love?
i’m not shy to say i love you to my friends. i want them to always know how important they are, and that i value their place in my life.
love sounds different to all of us, and in our own unique way, we express such beauty to others.
i love you is a random “thinking of you” text
i love you is asking what you’ve eaten today
i love you is the last minute dinners and margaritas
i love you is silly car performances and belly laughs
i love you is a check up on wellness
i love you is me being silly to make you laugh
i love you is making sure they practice self care
i love you is listening
i love you is always having your back
i love you is being patient
i love you is sitting in silence, comfortably
i love you is asking to text when you get home safe
i love you is inside jokes that make no sense
i love you is creating a safe atmosphere for open communication
i love you is being tender and kind hearted
i love you is consistency
i love you is helping them work through their dreams
i love you is encouragement and a little challenge, to ensure growth
as just a draft, there are endless ways to express your love for those you spend your life with.
perhaps ponder a moment, and think of a few ways you express your love to others. then think about how you would like it to be expressed to you? this can really help you identify whether your paying attention or just going through motions in daily life. if you find yourself having difficulty, try and practice active listening. when someone is talking, don’t think of a response…pay attention to the words, tone and person speaking. you’ll soon hear exactly what you need.
remain tender hearted, genuine and kind. ensure you love yourself, even the same as you love everyone else
