Acceptance and being loved are so important in life. I was just thinking last night about how important feeling like I'm accepted and that people really do love me for who I am truly is to me. We all need it.
Would you rather be told "I love you"
Would you rather be shown that he/she loves you?
Some of us find the demonstration as "good enough" or it is satisfying for our need, but some of us perfer to hear the words. It is almost as if we can't fully satisfy the need until we hear the three words.
Maybe it's a spouse, a significant other, a family member, or a close friend. Whoever they may be, how would you rather the acceptance and love be expressed to you?
