Often times we take things for granted. We assume that the people we love know how we feel about them or how much we appreciate them. We assume that they know when we’re upset or that something they do bothers us. We assume that saying the words to them is enough…but it isn’t.
Assumptions. Nothing good ever comes out of them. It’s a breeding ground for misunderstanding, arguments and hurt feelings.
Words, on the other hand, can make a difference. Words communicate how we’re feeling to someone and can prevent misunderstanding, arguments and hurt feelings.
Yet there’s something important about those words: you need the actions to back them up because it’s those actions that make them true to the person you said them to.
Be mindful. Be compassionate. Be kind. Be understanding. Be willing to listen with an open heart and mind.
And be those things to the people you love.
And they’ll be all those things to you.
And never miss an opportunity to not only tell someone how you feel about them, but show them!
It’s a good thing.
Wishing you love and light,
