The World's Most Popular Sentence
When you said it this morning, what did you really mean?
So much of our attention is on the L word: love longed for, love discovered, love gone wrong, gone crazy, gone away, rediscovered, laughed at and criticized.
And the most repeated sentence of all time?
"I love you" (romantic partner, sibling, parent-child or friend).
Some use it when they want something, while others do it to hear it back; still others are really asking the question: "Are we okay?"
Some toss "Love you" back and forth so often that it has long since lost all meaning. Even when things are not going well, still, it returns like an echo.
And believe it or not, there are those who say it to express strong affection and caring.
If the 'I love you' in your relationship has been drained of life, or if it has come to mean something else, there are two ways to put the magic back.
Use it only to express warmth and caring. For those who want to know if the relationship is okay, or if their partner still cares, take a deep breath and ask.
And for those who want to hear it back, once again, deep breath and go. Vulnerability can go a long way toward deepening a relationship.
The second way to ignite those 3 words? Stop the echo.
Instead, when you hear that remarkable sentence, take a moment to take it in -- all the way in; and then take another moment to enjoy it. Let it lift your heart. Your life.
Oh, and be sure and let the other person know what you are doing before going silent, which brings us to this.
What happens when our own 'I love you' is met with that silence; you know, when the other person is busy taking it in? Some of us will be feeling (very?) uncomfortable, but that discomfort is just a feeling, a feeling that fades.
And with a bit of persistence, you too can experience a miracle: that amazing sound of love as it surrounds the other person; and have the same experience as it surrounds you.
Insights bring Change
He had been working so hard to succeed and was now desperate, his business deep in the red.
I asked him: “If there was one person on the planet holding you back, who would it be?”
He immediately said, “My Mother.”
She was giving him money to keep his business afloat. She had also given him the down payment for his house and had just taken over making the payments.
Now he knew: untangle from Mom; become independent; succeed.
She was saying, “If only I could find the right guy, I would give myself to him, and—”
I stopped her and asked, “Give your SELF?”
Her eyes widened, as she realized what she had said and what she had been doing.
How long will you wait for that change in your life?
