Everyone can say I Love you, but not everyone really means it

Everyone can say: I love you, but not everyone really means it. So believe it when you see it and feel it, not only when you hear it.

When we say, “I Love You” that is exactly what we mean. It does not mean that the recipient of our love feels what we feel for them. To know whether feeling is mutual, ask: “Do you feel loved by me?”

Love is not a word spoken, but it’s an act of life is lived. ~ Karim Kamel 

You can say something Hurtful in 10 seconds

Be careful what you say. You can say something hurtful in ten seconds, but ten years later, the wounds are still there. ~ Joel Osteen

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be. ~ Kurt Vonnegut

I must be careful not to get trapped in the past. That's why I tend to forget my songs. ~ Mick Jagger

Our words can be very powerful and be very hurtful. Of course there are people out there who are more resilient than others. There are those who are able to process hurtful comments and it does not hurt their image of themselves. Just because there are people of great strength and resiliency out there does not relieve ourselves of a compassionate approach to those who are not so resilient. A loving environment encourages their growth. Our responsibility for ourselves is to work on being the confident resilient person for we will run into unkind words along the way.

Be careful in dealing with a man who cares nothing for comfort or promotion, but is simply determined to do what he believes to be right. He is a dangerous uncomfortable enemy, because his body, which you can always conquer, gives you little purchase upon his soul. ~ Gilbert Murray
