I love you

i know when i was younger my parents had no love. They never expressed it.i saw loyalty. i saw that my father provided but maybe bc he had 4 girls & finally a boy & oops, my baby sister. So he didn't know how to show love. Never heard i love you, be safe, be careful. I changed that though in my children. One day i started to tell them i love you, just try it (things)won't hurt. I gave my children something they still have in them, to express the way you feel when you are there or not. It was important. Dont get me wrong, my parents didnt have that part in their lives but the buck stopped here, my children, parents & friends will know i love them. I express that when i see them, call them, text them its our ability to change when you want better. I don't hold anything against my parents. No need to, they say it now too bc I expressed a little attention on something that i think is powerful. LOVE

    No “I Love You’s” when I was growing up either, but I did know they did love me. When I had children I did the same thing, they heard it EVERY day.

    My parents told us kids, but never heard them tell each other “I love you” . . . telling someone you love them, can make them feel very uneasy and uncomfortable.

      Just thought it is better to say than not to say…

    My mother died when I was four … my father did his best and provided for us, but there was no warm family gatherings or school functions that he attended or the hugs or anything like that.
    But it’s nice when you have friends and those who you become close to and you find out you can lean on them and trust them. They become family also.

    I never heard those 3 words strung together as a child either, but like you, I make sure my children hear those words from me. You never know when our lives may end, therefore, it’s best to share the aforementioned sentiments…
