Some gestures, however small they might seem – are so special. To me, one such gesture is when someone tells me “God Bless You”. It makes my heart skip a beat and really pulls a string in my heart.
These three little words speak so much – love, care, concern, warmth, and affection. Last evening one of my blogger pal, who calls me as his ‘granddaughter’ said “God bless you’ to me and it instantly lightened up my face.
We live in a world where our affection can be very easily misinterpreted. People maintain a distance just to avoid being misunderstood or taken in the wrong sense. For instance, you may love your best friend a lot; but would you say ‘I love you’ to them? Probably NO. Because we are afraid of expressing our affection.
Hey! There are tons of types of love – love for a friend, a parent, a sibling, a pet..
We want to maintain our modesty and a fine balance in relations, hence we refrain from sharing our heart.
It is very easy to speak our minds, but only a few share their hearts.
It is common to share your thoughts, but so rare to find people who you can share your feelings with and who reciprocate the same.
There needs to be a very apt level of understanding only then can you express without the worry of being misunderstood. I have a few of my friends who often tell me ‘Miss you’ or ‘Love you’ and I reciprocate back with equal tenderness because I know of their affection for me.
I feel we should be more unapologetic in showing love and expressing our feelings. Every person needs to be told that they are loved, valued and appreciated. That their presence matters to someone and that their smile lights up a gloomy day.
If not ‘love you’, say ‘stay blessed’ to the ones you love 🙂 ❤
