Saying “I Love You”

Sometimes those three words are easy to say.

…to my daughters, my friends…

Other times, even thinking about their utterance is frightening.

I yearn to tell Alaska that I love him, but I don’t.

Is it fear of rejection?

I know he won’t reject me…

If he was going to reject me, it would have been long before now.

Maybe I’m holding back because I’m not sure it’s love that I feel.

… Trust is essential, and it must be a part of your relationship before you say, “I love you.” If you feel needy when your partner is out on his or her own, or you feel jealous when they are with someone else, you probably need to hold off on saying it. Learn to trust your partner, otherwise you can’t possibly love them the way you want… (quote from: 6 Questions to Answer Before You Say “I Love You”)

Or am I worried he won’t say it back?

    It takes a lot to get me to say I love you. Some say it after 3 dates…

      I definitely feel a different kind of love for my friends and blog-followers and, especially, my daughters… But sexy love is something very deep and meaningful for me, as it is for Him. So, I don’t want to say it until I’m sure ❤

  2. I think its important to keep in mind the different types of ‘I love you’… some are MUCH easier to say than others, and that’s ok!
