What is your forever answer?
Every now and then, we might wonder what that special person in our lives sees in us, or ponder why it is that they love us.
“I love you.”
Love isn’t a word to be taken lightly, though, at the same it is one of those “habit” words that we so often get used to saying without always putting in the feeling behind the phrase.
Doesn’t mean that we not sincere. Not all at. I think it’s more that by saying those three special words, it somehow helps to keep our faith in each other, even when said mechanically.
I know it works that way for my children, who utter those three words to me countless times on any given day. Yes, I am blessed — there are people in this big wide-world who love me and who I love back with all my heart and then some.
The last few weeks, love has been a running theme here at Living Out Loud. We have had the pleasure of welcoming and publishing some new writers, and we are excited about creating a loving community where readers and writers can connect and share their experiences and perspectives under one little nook of the web — a space that we share with anyone who wants to join us.
Thank you to our wonderful writers who have shared a snippet of themselves; their hearts and souls — the stuff that makes them real. In case you’ve missed out on the latest stories, I’ve bundled them together for you below.
Lexi’s Wants to Know Your Forever Answer:
Why do you love me?
I love you because….
- You know everything about me and you’re still around.
- You piss me off and laugh when I call you an asshole.
- You instinctively know when I need a hug.
- You let me be who I am and love me even more for it.
- You still try to make me laugh.
- When things get tough, you love me even harder.
