With the holidays coming, I have been thinking about by Grandpa and Nana who have passed on. True, I have not lost a lot of people in my life, but they were very important to me. I was telling my husband that I wish I could go back and relive those years of being a teenager/young adult who put a whole bunch of crap above my family at times.
What Do You Wish You Would’ve Said Before It Was Too Late?
I would love to hear what YOU would have liked to say before it was too late. (Please share in the comments below.) But, until then I asked people on HubPages and Yahoo Answers to share what they wish they would have said to someone who has passed on. Here are the two top answers.
1. I Love You
Of course this would be the number one answer…it is something that is not said enough in some relationship but it is something that many of us want to say!
The words ‘I love you’ hold a lot of power in them, so they can be very hard to say, especially when you do not have a relationship with that person where the words have often be said.
My best friends parents say I love you to her every time they talk, but my parents are not like that (and neither were their parents). For me to say I love you to them – it feels awkward. Yet, it is the one thing that I would love to say.
Showing people that you are grateful for them is so important. It makes them feel like they are an important part of your life, lifts their spirits, and makes them feel like a great person. This is something I try to do with my parents – always – so that they always know that I appreciate them in my life.
Thank people for:
- Bringing you joy
- Helping you out
- Adding value to your life
- Being there for you
- Being a source of inspiration
- Lifting your spirits
Say What You Gotta Say
Why don’t we say what we have to say? Because of fear. We fear being judged or disappointed or hurt or whatever.
So, let’s move past the fear.
This isn’t a long post, but take the fact that you ended up here a sign that you need to say something to someone. So go out and say what you gotta say to someone before it is too late.
