While it should not take a global pandemic or some other crisis to get you to tell people you love them, it is, unfortunately, the case. Loving someone and letting them know should be something you do every day because life is short, no matter what is going on in the world. Remember to tell people you love them even when you might be upset. Tell them every chance you get!
Stop waiting to tell people you love them
The Covid-19 pandemic has left so many of us with empty spaces in our hearts after not being able to tell people we love them and say goodbye. The thing is, you never know what tomorrow will bring. Even if there was no world crisis right now, tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. We need to be grateful for what we have and show that we are!
Other than loss, there is no feeling more pain than regret. A combination of the two is something you don’t want to experience. Tell people you love them now because waiting and losing that chance is a horrible feeling.
“If we remembered every day that we could lose someone at any moment, we would love them more fiercely and freely, and without fear- not because there is nothing to lose, but because everything can be lost.”From The Still Point of the Turning World, by Emily Rapp
Even the strongest relationship has its moments
When you’re in a relationship with someone, arguments happen. It’s completely normal. However, the silent treatment is not. Tell people you love them, and when it comes to your significant other, put the pride aside. No matter how much you may feel he or she was in the wrong. Never go to bed without saying good night, and of course, I love you.
“Never go to sleep angry. Because you never know if you or the person you’re mad at will wake up the next morning. Always forgive because you never know if you’ll talk to them again. Things happen. Get over it. Always forgive. You may not forget but it’s better than knowing you’ll never get to say sorry or I love you again.”Unknown
Tell people you love them, especially your family
So often, we take our family for granted. Our parents, our siblings. Perhaps they live in another town, and you don’t speak often. But you need to remember that they are still there after the holiday visit. Remember to tell them you love them as often as you can. Let them know just how much they mean to you and how much they have impacted your life. Pick up the phone and call and tell the people who matter most that you love and cherish them.
“Call your mom, call your dad. If you’re lucky enough to have a parent or two alive on this planet, call ‘em. Don’t text. Don’t email. Call them on the phone. Tell ‘em you love ‘em, and thank them, and listen to them for as long as they want to talk to you. Thank you. Thank you, Mom and Dad.”J.K Simmons
The one you’re too afraid to tell
Are you in love with somebody but too afraid to say it? Why? If you loving that person won’t hurt anyone else, tell them. So many times, we allow someone to pass by without us letting them know exactly how we feel. Life is far too short to live and not be happy, truly happy. If you wait too long, you might miss your only chance with the person you love, and they will miss out on you.
“Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye, but regrets can last for a lifetime.”Unknown
