I will make a point of saying, I love you to those I genuinely love.
I will say I love you without expectation of reciprocation.
I will say I love you with deep and sincere feeling.
I will say I love you and feel good to have shared my love with words.
Saying those three words can become a habit – however truthful or well intended – that lacks emotion. Or they can be neglected all together- from oversight, presumption or avoidance. Sometimes saying “I love you” is difficult, even painful. Sometimes it’s the difficult things that are the most meaningful. It might be awkward but spreading love is a cause worth being a little uncomfortable for. No matter how long it’s been, it’s never too late to make a very conscious and deliberate point of letting those we love know that we do – with those three words – heartfelt and sincere. If you can’t share your heart in person the words can still carry sincere meaning via phone, email, letter or card. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there’s no better time.
