How do you say those three little words?
When you say ‘I love you’ to someone, you are taking on a lot of responsibility. Love comes with ups and downs, which aren’t always apparent until they’re happening.
But with that said, being in love is so much fun.
Getting to be with the person you care about most in the world as much as you want can practically feels like one big sleepover all the time.
Expressions of that love come in many forms. You might be the type of person who texts your significant other “get home safe” when they’re driving, or you may be the person who makes your partner’s favorite home-cooked meal to surprise them.
However you do it, your special sweet somethings becomes your own personal ways of saying “I love you”.
And when you’re with someone who has their own way of saying they love you back, it can make you feel that much more important to them.
Of course, love isn’t always easy. There are so many times I wish I could have taken a step back and tried to diffuse a situation with love instead of fighting first, but it doesn’t always happen the way you want it to.
Even in those times, though, it’s important to remember that love is something that should be appreciated and that it’s okay to get fed up sometimes, as long as you remember to say, “I love you” when everything has settled.
