"I love you" serves as a verbal expression of love, care & gratitude for someone, whether it be romantic or not, that is necessary to the formation & continuation of friendships & relationships, but if it is used carelessly & frivolously, the phrase loses its potency. Saying "I love you" can mean everything to someone or it can mean absolutely nothing. Remember the sheer utterance of the phrase has no meaning whatsoever if your actions don’t show that person how much you love them.
If you don’t love someone, don’t say it. If you truly love someone, don’t hesitate to say it; it’s never too late.
If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, re-scheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough.
My name is Samantha, but I prefer to be called Sami.
I am a recent college grad and have been thrown into the real world. I have been trying to figure out who I am and what I want to do with my life; let me just say, it hasn’t been easy. Creating this blog marks the beginning of a new chapter of my life. I want this blog to document every step, whether it be forward or backwards, in my journey. Here’s to the future and the uncertainties it may hold.
Stay tuned ya’ll.
