I recently overheard a conversation between two young girls that agreed the phrase ‘I Love You’ is overused. I completely disagreed with what I heard, but I didn’t say anything at the time. Those that know me will agree that I’m a go-home-and-write-about-it kind of girl. So here I am, writing about it.
I don’t think that the phrase is overused. In fact, I don’t think it’s said enough.
The people that are important to me often hear me say ‘I Love You’. I tell my other half every morning when I wake up. I say it again before we fall asleep. I write it to my parents. I text it to my friends. I call my Nanna and Grandad to say it.. every single day. My aunties, my uncles, my cousins. They all hear it from me.
And why not?
It’s the truth to speak. It makes them happy to hear. It’s the most powerful feeling in my little world and I want to share it with them. I want them to know what they mean to me. In case something happens. In case it doesn’t. Love is so important. It’s limitless, precious, genuine. It gives hope and comfort, as well as creating the purest form of contentment. So instead of worrying that the meaning of ‘I Love You’ is wavering, keep it strong.
Say it when you feel it.
Don’t look back and wish you had.
