Did you know that expressing your love is vital to living a joyful, regret-free life? Well, it most certainly is.
In the book ‘The 5 Regrets of the Dying’ by Bronnie Ware we learn that the third biggest regret that people have in their life is, “I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.”
People suppress their feelings for a number of reasons from being shy to trying to keep peace with others. When we don’t express our feelings we settle for surface relationships at best.
Mrs. Ware said, “Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.”
Be a ‘love agent’, express your love and connect with others in a deeper way. You’ll feel happier, whole and healthy. The next time you’re feeling low, rather than becoming isolated, call a friend or reach out to someone else with kindness.
There’s bonding power that is released when we express our love. Expressions of love for people, places and others provides us all with an authenticity and fullness of love.
So, come on, try it. Gather up your courage and tell another how and why you love them. Express those loving feelings. I think you’re going to love it! You won’t regret it.
