Wisdom in 100 Words for Today: Say You love them.

I thought I would start something a little new here.

100 Word Wisdom: Say You Love Them.

It’s the idea of sharing a piece of advice in 100 words. If it takes longer than that it’s too much for most people to listen to anyway. And yes, the following is exactly 100 words.


Tell the one you love you love them. Never have the attitude of “they know I do”. Often times, relationships die out because of a lack of communication, yeah, I know, an old cliché. You know why cliché’s are clichés, because they happen often enough for people to say them that much.

Communication doesn’t even need to be words. A touch, a smile, a look, an action of some kind will tell a person you love them. But actions and words need to work together to form a truth. One without the other is like a yin without a yang.

(As suggested in the comments below this will now be a weekly blog event everyone can join in and share. Much like my #BeWoW, just share your link in the comments of my post on Tuesdays and if you tweet use #100WordWisdom so like minded people can see and RT your Wisdom. Thanks to Lori Carlson of The Rattling Bones blog for the nudge. Follow her on Twitter )

Much Respect

  1. Shared that link with my husband. Tough times lately, what I need is as simple as what you said. Addiction isn’t just about the addict….I have to survive this, with two kids and a dog along with a fledgling final dash towards creating a blog people want to submit to for publication. The last several weeks I have been reading my favorite blogs looking for those things that connect with me. Your post hit the spot. Thank you. If he can manage to want to be healthy and happy while not assuming what I should know will leave feeling alone. I can’t make him stop, or make him want to get clean but I don’t have to “hang” on if he’s not putting work into helping me heal with him–I’ve been covering for him for 5 years. Rehab starts on the 9th. Your words made it easier for me to stay strong , honor my in sickness and health vow in order to be with him when he’s made . I will tell him what he should know and in turn I know he will open up to me.

  2. Nicely put. And I like the succinct aspect of this idea, too.

    By the way, I’m in a very busy period and haven’t had a chance to read many blogs or catch up on my own. Hopefully after this week life will slow back down some.


  3. What a beautiful idea! Maybe you should make this a weekly feature asking others to share their words of wisdom too… I know I would join in!

  4. Excellent post. My mother was a cold/withholding woman, couldn’t say “I love you”; the best she’d do sometimes was, “You know I love you” (the tone was the same as, “you know better than to go out in the rain”). Well, guess what? I didn’t know it–desperately needed to hear it, and with feeling. I don’t think she loved me–so maybe she was more honest for not saying it.

  5. Dell, I hear you well. I never bonded with my mother, but I did with my grandmother. Mother was not controlling, but a good mother who just went through the motions. She wasn’t into telling me she loved me, until now when she’s in a rehab. facility. I don’t know if it’s her condition or regrets. Her not telling me she loved me when I really needed it didn’t bother me. I was lucky to come from a humongous family, so others picked up the slack. She was a good mother though and I think did the best she could without that bond for us.
