They’re Just Words So Why Are They So Important?

They’re Just Words So Why Are They So Important?

Sometimes it’s very, very hard not being able to say, “I love you”

I know we show each other all the time, but sometimes I want to say it so badly it brings tears to my eyes.

I don’t know what it is about those three words that moves me — they’re just words. I am forever saying how I can make up a bunch of words to say things that aren’t true – they’re just words. I am always telling myself and my daughters how “actions speak louder than words”. Constantly I inundate myself with motivational quotes about how goodness begets goodness, etc…

So, why are those three words such an emotional trigger for me?

Maybe it’s because I’m PMS-y right now; maybe it’s because my bitch-face co-worker keeps acting like my 15-year-old daughter-on-the-rampage (or Mr. Doom-n-Gloom); maybe it’s because I just miss my sexy Loverman today (but you just saw him this morning).

Who knows?

    1. Thank you for the validation 🙂
      I shouldn’t whine. Since he bought (financed) that stupid broken truck, I have been seeing him between 4 and 5 days a week and that is definitely WAY better than hearing the words, “I love you” spoken over the phone. I would take a kiss (and a grope) over words any day. There are just some days that I really, really, really want to say it to him (in case he forgets 😉 You know?)

    1. When we first started our ‘thing’, I already had some pretty strong feelings for Loverman — I was drawn to him like a magnet even before I knew him… But, I also told him that I never wanted to be married again, especially to him, because I don’t want to ruin the wonderfulness that we have.

      So, I kind of made the rule (and he agreed) that we sh/couldn’t say “I love you” and I think that, ultimately, it just made us love each other more… Maybe subconsciously I wanted it to happen that way 😉 We have said it to each other before; sometimes on accident, sometimes on purpose. There are just some days that I want to say it to him over and over and over and over because, the longer I spend with him, the more I love him. I don’t think I could even say it enough times to equal the amount of it that I feel for him…

    1. And if you say them all the time, they totally become meaningless…
      I had that talk with a co-worker of mine yesterday because she throws compliments around willy-nilly. So much that I can’t even tell when she means it or when she’s just saying it to shut me up 🙂

Talk to me :-)
