Show Me

13 Sep

There are many different emotions we experience in our lives. One of the most rewarding, frustrating, difficult and pleasurable is love. Love creates strong, sometimes intense connections to those around us and when we share it with someone we may feel complete and happy. Everyone expresses their emotions in different ways. One person may be very affectionate while someone else who feels the same way may be more reserved in what they show. We’re unique and express what we feel according to what’s comfortable for us and how much we’re willing to display. But when we say we love someone, love is a verb. It requires us to do something that shows how we feel. If we do nothing and merely admit our feelings to ourselves alone, or simply express our feelings in words only, it’s likely we’ll never have the relationship we seek. Words are fine for giving directions or explaining how things work, but if we want to express that we love someone, words are only the first step. We must show we love them through our actions, our consideration, our trust, and our commitment. Without actions words mean nothing and we may lose a tender connection we truly desire. By being open and expressing our feelings we can get close to others in ways that will bring us intense joy and satisfaction. We have everything we need to create strong, healthy relationships and show those we love how we feel. When we do, our lives will be enriched and we’ll find great happiness.

It’s impossible to have a close, loving relationship with someone if they don’t know how we feel. It can be difficult to express our tenderest emotions, and we may hesitate not knowing what the response will be. Baring our souls and deepest feelings takes courage and we may need time before we’re ready. We can take all the time we need to express ourselves, but we will never be able to move forward until we do. We can hold our feelings close and keep them to ourselves for as long as we like. But every moment we wait keeps us from the possible happiness we could enjoy.

If we aren’t confident about actually building a real love relationship with someone else, but still want them close, we may say we love them and make promises from a distance without ever letting them near. They may get caught up in our words at first and believe we really care, but if we don’t actually let them into our lives, we will eventually lose them. It’s impossible for anyone to believe we love them over time if we aren’t willing to do anything that shows we care. If we don’t let them in, they will remain on the outside. We’re brave enough to open our hearts to those we love. We can let them share and become part of our lives. The intimacy of letting someone know us deeply will bring tremendous satisfaction and depth into our relationship.

Today if you feel love for someone but have been unable to express it, think about what you really want. You can open your heart and share your life and find great pleasure in the connection. Be open and let others in. Your life will be richer and you’ll be happier. Show your love and you’ll have great blessings and joy.
