We all want to hear that we are loved. But sometimes, having someone tell us they love us is not enough. There are times when we need to hear that we are appreciated for who we are and that others are grateful to have us in their life.
Here are 6 phrases that can be more heart-warming than an “I love you.”
1. I BELIEVE IN YOU
When someone says they believe in you, you will immediately feel better and more motivated to do whatever you had planned to do. The thing is, we are so used to people being negative, that a positive reinforcement like this is very welcome.
2. THANK YOU
Hearing these words can really warm a person’s heart. Knowing that you are respected and that someone is grateful for your presence is amazing. When someone says ‘thank you’ to you it means that you mean a lot to them and you influence them in a great and positive way.
3. IT’S WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE
Everyone makes mistakes. And while there are many people out there who can forgive and forget, there are also amazing human beings who understand that no one is faultless and are willing to let bygones be bygones. After all, we can all learn from our errors and come out as better people.
4. I APPRECIATE YOU
Being appreciated by the people you love is one of the most wonderful feelings. Sadly, we rarely express how much we appreciate the people in our lives. Let’s change that!
5. I HOPE YOU SUCCEED
Telling a person you want them to succeed from the bottom of your heart is one of the most selfless and loving things you can say to them.
6. I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU IN MY LIFE
Who wouldn’t want to hear this? Unfortunately, we get so busy with trivial things that we forget to say to the people who matter to us how lucky we are they are in our lives.
It is not too late! You can start saying these things to your loved ones today and let them know how much they mean to you.
