I mean… I love you too

February 1, 2012

So the truth is that I once told a guy I loved him because it was his birthday. Was that wrong?

Deep down, I believed that I was justified in my action but over the years I ‘ve wondered if it was more selfish than anything. Think about it, I could have told him the truth or just responded to his verbal expresssion of emotion with a simple ‘thanks.’ Instead, I chose to say three words that carry weight and significant substance in the minds of most. I chose to use an expression that is the universal unifier of two hearts as my cowardly buffer… my escape route.

I shake my head at the younger version of myself.

    In a strange bazaar kind of way maybe at that moment you did love him. Just remember everyone that you say that to doesn’t mean it is a I want to marry and have your children type of I love you. I’m sure you know that now…oh and by the way you can still tell others you love them it’s ok…
