Say "I love you"

"We gotta tell 'em that we love 'em when we've got the chance to say"

Maybe it is my slight OCD or just the fact I've always just had to tell the people I love that I love them. Maybe it is because I'm kinda needy and need to hear the words back. Who knows, all I know is that I never miss a chance to say "I love you" to my family and boyfriend when I leave from them. It is now a ritual that my boy and I have to text each other goodnight and say we love each other.

Does it just make you feel good? To say those words and to hear them back. You never know what might happen. Perhaps it is morbid to say, but you leaving to go somewhere or letting someone else go, you may never see them again. Don't you want your last words to them to be the best ones in our human existence?

So next time you see those you love, don't forget to tell them. They will definitely love to hear the words and it might just make you feel good too. :)


  1. i completely agree, lauren:) growing up, my mom always reminded us to say "i love u" before we leave even if it's through the phone or a quick trip to the store. never know what could happen and i definitely agree...i would want my last words to that person to be "i love u." that's a very sweet ritual u have w/ur bf:) thanks for sharing!:)


  2. I definitely agree, as well! Hearing "I love you" just gives you that feeling of security, knowing that the people you love feel the same way about it you, which is a pretty nice feeling for sure! The whole saying goodnight bit with your boyfriend sounds super duper sweet as well... :)

  3. The fam and I are always exchanging "I love yous" It may seem like a bit much to outsiders, but it's true...you never know when you'll be saying it for the last time.
