When we talk of a healthy relationship, we instinctively paint a utopic picture of a couple, by virtue of some miracle, being free of insecurities, having full faith in each other, giving one another room to breathe without the hocus-pocus that comes with it. Though the picture may be true to an extent, it is not some providential interference that brings about this bliss- it is their ability to express their love to one another.
It therefore holds that letting your partner know every now and then how much they mean to you is paramount. Now, one does not ask of you to chant the words ‘I love you’ like a hymn; it will obviously lose its charm and relevance. There are several other ways of expressing your love; through the little things or gestures that you do in everyday life.
The question remains unanswered though- why is it so important? To begin with, we have the most common argument to present- our innate ability of being human. We may exhibit a rock- solid exterior to the world, create our own cocoon to shelter ourselves from the cruelty that it has to offer in abundance, but the fact remains that the heart wants what it wants.
Even the supposedly cold- blooded people in their seclusion have their tender moments- they crave for companionship. We all wish for that one person who cares deeply enough to be bothered by our existence, with whom we can celebrate our successes and drown our failures; someone we can uninhibitedly love and protect, someone who enters with a promise to stay eternally by our side. That is something we cannot receive until we express.
Letting your partner know their importance in your life is always rewarding, one way or another. It maintains the zing of your relationship and deepens their trust and faith in you and your love. Good things lead to better results and trust us when we say, your efforts shall not go wasted.
Everyone likes to feel special. It is even fulfilling when someone you love adds to that feeling. It makes you want to do things for your significant other, to reciprocate the feeling that they unabashedly exhibit. Love begets love.
Looking at the flip side of events, if we were to not express, there would be no harmony within our being. There would exist no way for the other to ascertain whether their presence makes any difference to your sanctity. So many things, when left unsaid, lead to complications- insecurities, lack of trust and faith- which breed itself like that unwanted pathogen inside the body, smearing toxicity into what was a sublime picture. It is then when you realize that it is too late to recover.
What can be avoided, should be avoided. All good things need to be cared for, and not taken for granted. Doing otherwise just results in stagnation, where it simply rots, and cleaning that up is one big burden for the poor heart.
It is not just about knowing; it is about telling so many things attached with that knowledge. All that is required of you are little efforts that generally don’t go wrong, that bear beautiful results. Never underestimate the power of love.
