This may seem like a total exaggeration, but I think you’ll find truth in this in many cases.
Many people (me included) get wrapped up in life, busy with schedules and work, and forget to show their life-partner that they love him/her. It’s true, isn’t it?
Our lack can be easy to justify:
- “I’m too busy”
- “I forget sometimes”
- “We have schedules where we don’t see each other much”
- “I don’t know how”
- “I’m just not that kind of person”
- or the classic “I told you 20 years ago that I love you. If anything changes, I’ll let you know.”
Feeble excuses that can cause dramatic and undesireable results. Although if everyone was really good at showing their affection, Carol and I would have to find new work – there would be no demand for relationship coaching.
I’m curious to know how you show your love to your mate. Is it in ways you think? Do you do something unique and special? Are there certain words you use that indicate your feelings?
I invite you to send me a note with your ideas, either what you do now or what you could do. If I get enough responses, I’ll create a top 10 list to share.
