These 3 words I Love You is not easy to utter it out. I could say it only to certain people. I have been saying these words for the last 8 months, each time ending my conversation with my boyfriend. Of course, he will say it too, depend who ends the conversation. Sometimes I wonder, do we really mean it when we say I love you?
My mom often tell me she loves me, but it's hard for me to reply the same way. I know she really means it.
Being Asian upbringing, I think it's normal for us (this is intended for Asian only) to reciprocate our love. Maybe we are thought to be less expressive in our words but more in our actions. Reassurance of words will motivate one's soul.
It's true; Saying without acting is baseless. What is love? How do we act on it when we say I love you? Part of concept of love involve feelings, which are true. But I would like to share another part of it.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
I hope that our concept of loving and whenever we say I Love You, we will love the person wholly and totally.
