Ever notice how some of us say “love you” instead of “I love you?”
I’ve noticed this for some time now and my mind ponders this…Why don’t we say “I love you?” Are we afraid to take ownership of our love for one another?
“I love you” says it clearly. No ifs, ands, or buts. Proclamation is a CLEAR declaration of something, it leaves no room for question or doubt. Love is not ashamed or shy. It’s bold! Putting the “I” in “I love you” emphasizes your love. Saying a simple “love ya” can sometimes be impersonal and casual. I’m not saying “love you” is a horrible thing to hear or say, I’m saying don’t be afraid to put yourself in it and say it with ownership!
My challenge for you is to say it.
It may be easy to offer a quick “love you” or my favorite one “love ya,” but stop being shy about it and say it loud and proud. Don’t shortchange the people you love with meaningless nothings. Give them the full version of your love. Be bold and say it!
Keep pressing…. I love you!
