Love Is More Than Just Words
Love. That is what I feel for you. Love. That is all I think about you. When two people are in love it is so extraordinary, it is hard to put into words.
There have been countless articles and books on this subject. I approach love today as for what it makes me feel in my heart towards that someone special and how when I demonstrate love I can see how it makes her feel.
Love makes you feel special. I don't know of a better way to describe the feeling of having someone love you and look at you with eyes of affection. They show not only that they want you but that they need you. When someone else enjoys having you around it can definitely make you smile.
Communication is said to be 55% non verbal (body language), 38% tone of voice and 7% words. This is very true when it comes to expressing love. So many people think that saying I love you is enough. Nothing could be further from the truth.
1) Non verbal gestures of love -the way you stand when you talk to people; do you fold your arms or play with your hands? Do you look them in the eye as you speak or avoid all eye contact? When we are fidgety and move around a lot it shows others that we are anxious.and uncomfortable having a discussion. We must pay close attention to people when we talk to them and show them that the conversation is not irritating us.
2) The tone we speak with can show a variety of emotions from us. When we yell, it shows anger. When we speak softly it shows concern. When we scream it reveals that something has caused us to raise our voice.
Your tone should reflect who you are talking to. When a man is speaking terms of endearment to his wife, his tone is different than when he speaks to a stranger at a grocery store. By paying attention to our audience, we can focus on who we are talking to and adjust our tone.
3) Although words are not as important in conversation as tone or non verbal gestures, it is still important. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Avoid being misunderstood by making sure you couch your words carefully. Nothing hurts more than people who want to give you a "piece of their mind" as if they had any extra to spare.
Communicate effectively and change your world.
