Although it is true that actions speak louder than words, there are still many people who appreciate kind and gentle words of affirmation from their loved ones – be it from family, friends, or that special someone.
Since February 14 is fast approaching, here are some phrases (aside from I love you) that you can say to the people you love to show your feelings, as well as to make their day more wonderful:
1. “You are really awesome!”
“Awesome” is a vague word but when used with sincerity, this catch-all word will surely boost the confidence of your special people. Let’s be honest here. Who doesn’t like to be called “awesome”? If you think someone is awesome, tell them!
2. “I appreciate your kindness”
Kindness is a beautiful thing. Receiving kindness from the people we love is one of the best feelings in the world. This time, when you receive kindness from someone, try to return kindness by telling this phrase to him/her. This will show the other person that you value their thoughtfulness.
3. “You make me smile”
Ah, this compliment not only sounds good to the ears but it also warms the heart. Sometimes, it even takes a lot of effort to make our loved ones smile. Saying this phrase to those who make you smile and laugh will make them feel accomplished and happy.
4. “I love spending time with you”
Spending time with someone means you like being with him/her. It can be that you love eating together, talking with each other, enjoying memorable activities together, or just staying in one place without actually doing anything. In any case, say this phrase to your special people to show them that they are worth your time and effort.
5. “You are important to me”
This phrase is very meaningful and touching. Say this to the people you care for very deeply. This will show them that you are serious and that you always keep them in a special part of your heart.
There you have it! We hope these phrases come in handy not only during Valentine’s Day but anytime you want to express your feelings to the people you love.
How about you guys and gals? What phrases do you usually say to your loved ones? Sometimes, people do more than talk, some talk more than they do. Some just show their feelings through silence. In any case, it will be best to show your feelings while you can. ^^
Have a lovely February and have a lovely and meaningful life~!
