Yes to you, what if I told you that I love you?
With your virtues and defects that make you unique and different, with your quirks and inconsistencies, I don’t care, because I see in you hundreds of qualities and attributes that I admire and make you special. Sometimes you make me angry, often you make me excited. Today because it’s Friday, tomorrow because the sun shines, the day after that because the light rises again. I appreciate you and you build my life, it doesn’t hurt or bother me to tell you, rather it makes me proud; I love you.
Why do we constantly highlight their few flaws and foibles even in our family members and lifelong friends that we love so much over all the other positive attributes? Why do we label and judge strangers at first sight? Why don’t we openly and honestly show and transmit our feelings and affections? Why is it so complicated to say ‘I love you’?
When you travel to remote or underdeveloped areas, one of the characteristics that most impacts when contacting the local inhabitants is innocence. No one is going to judge you for the way you dress, speak or your haircut, but you will usually be treated from the first moment with respect and admiration. Normally, the less contact a given community has with civilization, the purer the hearts of its members. They don’t usually hide their feelings, whether good or bad, and they often offer you what they have, no more, no less.
That brutal honesty is in itself a true revolution, as it causes an impact that pushes you to reflect and rethink the way we value our peers and express our emotions, as well as to discover the power that our way of acting around us has as a weapon. suggestive of positive evocations.
This simple, innocent and at the same time moving behavior of humble communities located one step away clearly denotes that human beings are good and positive by nature, but that this competitive society ends up restricting and limiting our emotional capacities.
If you believe in a better world, in peace, in human beings and in the inspiring messages on Facebook images that your friends post and that you click ‘like’ on, I don’t believe that it would be so difficult for you to look at today stare into the eyes of one of your friends or family and tell them. Why don’t you try and contemplate the powerful impact that beautiful and honest words have? What’s the worst that can happen? May the person you tell smile openly? What hugs you? What does ‘I love you’ return?
I think it’s worth trying, today can be a wonderful day to start highlighting the positive facets of those around us, let them know and observe how life is suddenly flooded with smiles and color. Being able to carry out an authentic revolution every day with just two words, that my friend, that is magic.
