self-expression for the self-strong

Saying “I Love You”

There are two rules to follow:

Don’t say “I love you” when you don’t mean it.

Say it only when you mean it.

This phrase is not reserved for family and lovers. You can love your best friend, your pet, your car, your god, yourself, the random stranger who made you smile, and the server in your favorite restaurant who remembers your usual dish.

Don’t be afraid of this phrase. Don’t let societal norms dictate when you can and cannot say it.

Remember the rules above: Say it when you mean it. Don’t say it when you don’t mean it.

Follow those rules with a pure heart.

  • I truly love what you’re building here, I hope you know that. These are the kinds of rules I strive to live by, even though I fail from time to time. It’s never too late to draw a line in the sand for one’s self, and proceed with better intent, with better hope. Especially this time of year, with life flooding the world again.

  • Mark! *hugs* Thank you, thank you.

    I don’t think (static) perfection is possible, so it’s pretty much inevitable to fail from time to time… but the important thing is to see where you’d like to go, who you’d like to be, and make the effort to move a little closer.

    And yes. Spring. It took forever to arrive in the desert, but the flowers are finally abloom. ♥
