The first Vitamin: “I love you” :- We often use the word love to describe how we feel about a lot of things eg. I love chocolate or I would love to go on a holiday, but love is something we decide on, learn about and work on, a journey of self-discovery.
When it comes to saying I love you to a member of the family or a friend or a child, love is not something we hold back until everything is in perfect order and the feeling hits us. This can be hard after many years of marriage or when a child has been misbehaving. Robert Wolgemuth writes” I love you means that regardless of the circumstances, regardless of what has happened, you can count on me.” ‘I love you’ can also be a form of tough love. Sometimes we have to tell our spouses the truth or we need to discipline our children because we love them.
