This has all to do with the privileged of being a human being, we can change our minds. I change my mind all the time, and as a woman, I change it regularly. So what I am trying to say is, there have been heat of the moment arguments, or even heat of the moment agreements I don’t agree with today. You are allowed to change your mind. In the end just know I loved you regardless.
Whether it be for good or bad, remind the people you care about how they have changed your life. Don’t go back to people who mean nothing to you now, that is not my point here. What I mean is let the people in your life now, know what they have done for you. You have grown regardless of whether it was a bad moment or a good moment. Don’t you think they should know they helped you grow.
Tell them you are sorry. Tell them, that you are sorry for hurting them, for misjudging or misunderstanding them. Not only will it make you understand the effect you may have had on them, but it will let you feel a little freedom. Sorry is a very powerful word, and when it is used correctly it can change so many relationships. Be aware of why you are sorry, and make sure you mean it!
Seems pretty obvious, right? Well it isn’t. We tell our children, our partner’s, and our family that we love them all the time. Do we tell the rest of the people we really love? Not always. This is something that resonates with me, on a huge level. I have been told, I over use the words. I disagree. These words can change a person’s day, their life.
This is so hard to do, for me anyway. These words are so freeing, and honestly worth it. If someone has hurt you, instead of holding contempt in your heart towards them, tell them. You can change a relationship this way. Maybe this person did not know they hurt you? Maybe they did not mean to. We spend too much time pretending we don’t care when we do. Be honest, tell them.
Why not explain to your loved one that you truly admire them. You think they are awesome! You love how they play ball, raise their family, etc…. These 3 words are not a bad thing, it’s ok to admire someone, without being like them. Without admiration, people would not have role models or strive to be better.7) You have made me laugh
My favorite thing! People that make me laugh. Maybe they have seen you laugh because of them, maybe they have not. Either way, don’t you think they should know that they may have gotten you through something with a laugh. Sometime’s that is all we need.
8) I think about you all the time
Not just meant for the love of your life or best friend. I often find myself thinking about other loved ones often, I fear that I don’t tell them enough. I need to find the time to tell them I am thinking of them. Moments are precious, and moments are easy to wash away. Instead, just send a text or a quick phone call.
9) Thank you
These are 2 of my very favorite words in the whole-wide-world. So simple and easy to say. I thank each and every one of you for the moments I have had with you. They do and always will mean sooo much to me!
10) You are Amazing
All of you are amazing! True story, all of you have touched my life in some way. I choose on my own to bring it to a positive! Whether or not I have been hurt by, or loved by any of you the truth remains, I have been affected by you!
In all that you have, remember that there are a million emotions that you have forgotten to say. That is ok, but remember to love, not hate! Accept, not judge. We are all fighting some sort of battle.
