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. :)
