My friend gave me this fabulous sign for Christmas. It states words that I literally want to live by. “Be a best friend. Tell the truth & overuse I love you”. They are three separate extremely strong lines. You should always be a best friend to everyone you care about. I know the word, “Best Friend,” is for the one you grew up with and your buddy-buddy with, but it means so much more. Being a best friend means being there for the ones you love and care about as often as possible. Wikipedia defines best friend as, “someone with whom one shares the strongest possible kind of friendship.” Why not be that kind of friend to everyone you care about and love?
Always tell the truth. Telling the truth at all times is ethical and important, but it always shows what type of person you are. If you are a honest good person, it means that everything that you say is valid and from your heart. If you are a liar, how can we believe anything you say? If you do not tell the truth, what does that say about your character? Always tell the truth about your life, no matter what. Even if it is hard or you are scared to the tell the truth, you will always feel best saying the truth & living the truth.
My favorite line of the sign is, “Overuse I LOVE YOU!” That is the best. I think that people are afraid to say I love you too much. I know some people that have never heard the words, “I love you,” from their parents. Why not? Why not express your love and feelings for the people you care about as often as possible? Tell your wife, boyfriend or sister that you love them every time you talk to them. Tell them how you care. Life it so unpredictable. We may not be here tomorrow. Live each day like it’s your last I tell them “I love you.”
