Those 3 Little Words: How Many Ways Can a Person Say "I Love You?" by Jessica Lawrence
I'll never forget the first time I told someone (other than my family or best friends) that I loved them. I was 16, and boy I thought I had it all figured out. He was two years my elder, had just graduated high school and I was head over heels in lust. Yes. Lust. Not love.
I've come to realize that saying "I love you" and showing it are interchangeable. I think I must say "I love you" to my daughter at least eight times a day. My love for her is different than the love I've had for people I've been in relationships with. Sometimes I have wanted the man I've been dating to say "I love you" to me repeatedly, just so I have comfort in knowing it's reciprocated. Other times, I've found love is shown.
- Love is the contented sigh from the person when their head is in your lap.
- Love is the way they look when they laugh.
- Love is shown by late-night ice cream or chocolate deliveries.
- Love is listening over something which is significant to you (but might not be to them).
So why do I want to hear the words so much, when I can feel the love anyway?
We all feel and show love in many ways. No matter how, it's just as impactful.
