We all want to feel loved. And even though most of us won’t admit it, we like hearing how much we are loved by our partners. We want to hear the words “I love you.” They make us feel special and important. And immensely happy. After all, there is nothing more important than being loved and appreciated by your loved ones.
Your need to hear that the person you love loves you back and cares for you doesn’t make you weak. It only makes you a sensitive person with an enormous heart who wants to love and be loved.
Of course, there are many ways to express your love to someone and saying only the words if they are not accompanied by action are worthless. But, at the same time, even though the actions of love are present, we still need to hear those words of love that melt our hearts.
We don’t need to hear them all the time, but hearing that someone loves us once in a while can really mean a lot for our relationship. When a relationship is deprived of words of love, then the partners feel abandoned, and soon doubts and fears between them will arise which could be a fatal thing for their relationship.
On the other hand, hearing loving words brings satisfaction, joy, and happiness. Moreover, the bond between the partners will become stronger and the trust between them will increase.
And the same applies to our children. We need to express our love to our children because they may not always realize that we love them if we don’t say it. It is our job to make them feel loved because nothing will raise their confidence more than their parents who often tell and show their kids how much they love them. This is the main reason why those children who were raised by emotionally distant and cold parents grow up to be insecure and they lack confidence.
Finally, remember – the people you love need to know you love them. Expressing your love to people who also love you is vital if you want to build a happy, strong, and long-lasting relationship.
