If you’re holding off on telling someone that you love them, stop wasting your time. Life is not as long as we tend to think it is and yours could be over in the blink of an eye.
Tomorrow is not promised. You could die at any moment under any circumstances and the things you never said will go unshared from that point on. When it comes to those who are important to us, we need to make sure they know how we feel about them. Whether you’re admitting your love to someone you want to be with romantically or reminding your Mother that you appreciate all she’s done for you, stop holding back.
Right now, in this moment, you need to say what you want to say and stop holding yourself back and closing yourself off. Everything could change overnight and that is no exaggeration. The people you care about are not immortal and if you were to get a call tomorrow saying your partner was potentially losing his or her life, what would you feel the need to tell them during their last moments? Whatever that something is, go share it with them now.
While these people might end up outliving you the truth is we never know for sure, and we don’t want to be stuck with regret once all is said and done. In this life, love means everything, and we should never withhold it. Life is fleeting and from the moment we’re born we’re headed towards death in one way or another. While some people live longer than others we all pass at some point.
Stop filtering out your love and start sharing it with the world. The people you care the most about need to know how you feel. Who knows, perhaps they’re waiting for you to speak up and say something. Sharing your feelings can truly change your life.
Sure, it might not always be easy but it will always be beneficial. You’re capable of so much more than you realize. Life is short. While 50-90 year might sound like a lot, with each year that passes it seems like time speeds up. Years, when I was younger, seemed to take forever to get through but now, within what feels like just a few months we’re always moving into a new year.
Appreciate the people who appreciate you and love the people you love. Your life should not be wasted holding back and refusing to speak up for yourself and for your heart. You are truly capable of so much more than you realize.
