We all need love. Sometimes I forget that the people around me need love just as much as I do. Sometimes I forget that they’re human just like me. That’s when I realise that I need to show them that I love them.
This post is not about how to tell your partner that you love them. This post is about my personal tips on how to show the important people around you that you love them.
Make them something. My brother hates to cook so if I want to show him that I love him, I’ll cook him something. It makes him happy because I don’t do it very often even though I know he loves it. That is one way to show love. Find something the person really appreciates to get and make it for them. It doesn’t have to cost you anything.
Share a secret. I don’t mean ‘tell them who you crush’-secrets. I mean real stuff. Things you struggle with and sometimes need to talk about. When you tell something that’s important to you, you make the other person feel valuable for getting to know important things about you. You share a big part of yourself and that’s another way to show someone that you love them.
Listen to them. Just like it’s important to give parts of yourself to someone else, it’s important that you’re there for them when they want to open their hearts to them. Often you don’t have to say much. You just have to listen and appreciate that you are important to them. Listening to other people’s thoughts and struggles is another way to show love.
Help them. My parents are often busy so if I voluntary help to make dinner they get so happy. I love my parents and I don’t want them to be busy constantly so helping them in hard times is a great way to show them I love them.
Tell them. Sometimes all you need to hear is that someone loves you. We all know that feeling. So if you find the need, tell them that you love them! You can say it in person or write a letter or just a text. The important thing about this is that you tell it. It will warm their hearts to hear you say it.
I hope you liked this a bit different post.
Stay happy, stay beautiful
