“If I’ve learned anything in life, it’s that you should tell people how important they are to you. Not because they could leave at any moment, but because they’re here now, and it’s worth saying something”
This is something I hear time and time again. That people don’t speak up and say what there heart want’s them to say until it’s too late. I have always grown up speaking from my heart so this is easy(ish) for me. Yes it has got me into some awkward situations at times, however it is just who I am and what I believe. I am the first to tell someone how much they mean to me, or how thankful I am to have them in my life and I do this because my heart want’s me too and then I feel much more content.
I can hear you now saying “that’s way too hard to tell (so in so) how I feel or saying how thankful I am for….”, however the more you do it the easier it gets and the lighter and happier you will feel. If you can’t say it face to face, or even over the phone, try texting it in a message or writting it in a card and see how amazing you will feel, even if it’s just over something small.
