Loving someone is the essence of being a human being and simply the best feeling in the world.

It’s so easy to get addicted to those butterflies in your stomach right before you’re about to meet with your loved one, to daydreaming about traveling around the world with them or just staying on a desert island for an eternity with them.

It’s so fulfilling to experience the feeling of excitement when you’re doing something together for the first time, the feeling of warmth during cuddling sessions, the feeling of having a best friend, significant other, partner in crime and your soulmate all in one.

And do you know what’s the most fulfilling thing of all?

To say I love you to your special someone.

But oftentimes, we forget to do so due to obligations, a busy lifestyle, due to being smitten by our feelings or because we simply don’t know how to express ourselves and say what we really mean and feel.

We forget that saying ‘I love you’ to our loved one shouldn’t only be reserved for Valentine’s Day or some other event with romantic predispositions.

Expressing our feelings and surprising our loved ones should be a part of our everyday life because little things are what matter the most in life and in a relationship!

Buying an expensive gift can never be a worthy alternative to opening yourself up and telling your loved one how you feel because the only language that true love understands is the language of the heart.

True love feeds on love language, romantic gestures, love notes, those three little words and other expressions of love and that’s why it’s important to implement them into your day-to-day life!
