DO Overuse "I Love You"

DO Overuse "I Love You"

No one ever left someone because they said “I love you” too much, but they certainly have when they don’t feel loved enough.  A spouse on their deathbed will never say, “I wish you hadn’t told me you love me so often,” but the regret of not saying it enough can stay with a person for a long time.

We have become so disconnected in this modern world of hurry, hurry, hurry.  It is easy to get caught up in the demands of daily life, and forget to maintain that close feeling that drew us to our significant other in the first place.

Life is too short to leave the important things unsaid.  Most of us have experienced a loss that came about too soon, and we could all probably think of something we would have liked to say before a loved one passed on. 

Even though those three words may seem to have lost the impact they had in the beginning of your relationship, they are still so critical to say, long after the passion of new love has transformed into the lasting, steady love of a lifelong relationship. 

So, no matter how often you have said it, “I love you” should never be something you neglect to say.  That affirmation is part of what keeps a relationship strong and lasting, and it is far better to say it too often than to leave it unsaid.  You never know when the time you say it is the last time.
