If you asked about 100 people that were over the age of 90 what their biggest regrets were, most of them will probably tell you that they wished they told, as well as showed their loved ones that they loved them more often.
More often, we can love someone so much, but we just don’t know what to do about it or how we should express it. It is actually something that no one taught us growing up and we most definitely never learned it in school too. In our opinion, this is one of the greatest problems that the society of today faces, a lack of expression of love in all the possible forms.
Ask yourself what is love and who you love in your life. It can simply be someone that is a friend, it might be someone you were once with and not anymore, and you are confused about it, it can be someone new in your life, or it can simply be one of the easiest choices – a member of your family.
Love can be a really confusing thing. Sometimes we don't even know what we are struggling with.
Do you sincerely love that person? Should that relationship have ended? Is it worth the risk? Is the fact that you are actually related to that person reason enough to love them?
All of these are different battles which go on inside our heads when it comes to various forms of relationships, as well as the question of love. Well, we do not have all of the answers, but we really think that we can be helpful.
We have come to learn that every one of us knows the answers to these things much clearer than we can realize, we just have to look in our heart. The secret is to clear your mind, as well as shut your eyes and listen to your heart.
The battle happening between our heart and mind has raged on since the start of humanity, and it is most likely going to continue to rage on until the end of time. But, for our sake, as well as for the sake of your loved ones, listen to your heart and please – if there is one thing which we can tell you with any certainty it is this: if someone really matters to you, make sure they know that, no matter what that looks like.
You will not regret it.
Also, surround yourself with people that lift you up. Part of self-love is having a higher standard for your inner circle.
Remember that before you can truly love someone, you should learn self-love. You should look inside yourself and feel nothing but love only. When you are truly happy on the inside you can make someone else happy too. So, please – Love yourself before everyone else.
The sad truth also is that there are so many people that are in love and not together, as well as so many people, are together but are not in love.
