February – thanks to St. Valentine’s Day – it’s filled with hearts and doilies and talk of love.
Funny how love can turn a big, hairy man into a blubbering pile of conversation hearts and rose petals, right?
There’s a big stigma in Hollywood surrounding the words “I love you.” They make a really big deal about those words, and when they are supposed to be said. As a result – I think we’ve sanctified those words a little too much…. we’ve made them holy, and then we get the idea that the words themselves define what love is,
The truth is – those words mean NOTHING if they aren’t followed up with action.
“I love you” and yet, I’ll disrespect your body for my own pleasure.
“I love you” and yet, I won’t commit to you. I won’t marry you, because I don’t think I love you permanently.
“I love you” and yet – I’ll chew your face off if you don’t do something right.
“I love you” and yet – I still love those other hot women on my computer screen.
If you really love someone, it has to be more than just words. It has to be words AND action.
And the words DO matter – why would you love someone and never tell them? Make sure to tell the people in your life that you love them (your wife, your kids, your parents, even your friends.) I don’t want anyone to ever wonder if I did love them. I want them to know it, not just because I said it, but because I showed it with my actions.
