Days 173-174. If you love someone, those three words are enough.

I’ve often been caught wishing I could find a way to express my emotions of extreme love. As though saying “I love you” is not enough. I want the person to feel it more and really know my thoughts about them.

But it is enough.

We downplay the word “love” by using it with insignificant things that shouldn’t be deserving of the word.

“I just love this shirt!”

“I love pizza!”

“I love coffee more than anything in the world.”

Those material possessions and basic items should never be placed in the same category as your loved ones or significant other.

How could I tell the love of my life that I love him, but turn  around and say the same thing about a small, forgettable item that I’ll get over in the next month? It’s not right and those words can’t be accurate.

Sure, I could have a fond liking for one thing or have a great interest in another, but neither should be comparable to the ones I truly love.

I. Love. You.

It’s enough. It should always be enough.
