I Love You
I came upon this idea that we as a society tend to not say, “I love you,” as much in everyday life. The thought came about after I was talking with a good friend about my depressive state of mind. After two hours of talking I decided to part ways and I said, “I love you.” Later when I arrived at my home I was thinking how good it feels to hear, “I love you.” So this is what the post is about…
I know we all get in these negative mindsets like: “I’m never going to be good enough,” “I’m never going to find someone to love,” or “I’m always going to struggle through life.” In transition, let us try to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes. For example, let us look at all the upheaval about the recent shooting in Virginia. The 66 year old man was distraught about President Trump’s election and opened fire on members of the Republican congressional baseball team at a practice field.
Just think if Mr. Hodgkinson had heard, “I love you,” way back when he was a young boy or a young adult or even as an old man would he have still committed those murders and suicide? We as a society have been ingrained to show emotion when we are in a private setting. Why is this the case?
Let us look at another example of news that possibly could have been prevented by just saying three words. We see just yesterday in California a gunman shot and killed three men in the UPS facility. Do you think if he heard those emotional words you would have committed murder and suicide?
This post may lack depth but why does that matter? It lacks complexity because it is simple to say,” I love you,” to everyone that you come in contact with today and see how your day goes. Then I would like for you to tell me about it. It can be in private message or post down below on the comment section.
- What you think?
- Why is it so easy or hard for some to say those words?
- Why may it be simple or difficult for those people and how can you help them?
