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.
