'I love you' has always been a very special and sacred phrase for me. I didn't always feel comfortable saying it to friends or even family members when I didn't feel I truly meant it. That's why, when I said it recently to a co-worker who was going through a rough time, I surprised myself. But I was being completely honest. In that moment, I fully and completely had love for her, compassion towards her situation, and was sending nothing but love to her and her family. It came flying out of my mouth, but in that moment, it was the completely right thing to say.
I still consider 'I love you' a very special and sacred phrase, but now, I will send love when I truely mean it and when the recipient truly needs it. I am open to sending love everywhere!
