When I Tell You I Love You

When I tell you I love you it means, I see YOU. I see past your hurt, confusion and fear. When I tell you I love you it means I want to see you at your best, so no, I won’t expose your fears. When I tell you I love you, I won’t judge, criticize or condemn, when I tell you I love you, I am the epitome of your best friend. Your flaw, faults and actions won’t be judged but taken as opportunities to heal the negativity that’s been drilled into you. Drilled in by your parents, friends, the world me live in, see I understand that all too well which is why when I say I love you – I do.

When I tell you I love you, my desire and intent is to help heal you, never to hurt you. When I tell you I love you it means I see the God in you. When I tell you I love you, it is my desire to see you grow. When I tell you I love you, I will never truly let you go. When I tell you I love you, I understand where you’ve been however; I understand you were born to win!

When I tell you I love you, it means I won’t expose and belittle you when I don’t understand you. I won’t discuss your flaws or pains with anyone else, maximizing the pain, instead of deteriorating it. When I tell you I love you – I support you, I don’t need to control you.

When I tell you I love you – I will be the best me for you, realizing that’s the only way to truly help you. When I tell you I love you, I mean it, I do. When I tell you I love you, sometimes this means I have to leave you. Although I love you, I love me too. If you don’t see the love in me as I do you, then its time for me to leave you, leave you to be you and to find out what love means for you.

When I tell you I love you, I will be patient. I will be kind. I won’t keep any records of your wrongs. I will not be jealous of you nor will I require you to see things my way. My love for you will never be too proud and will never dishonor you in any way. I will never seek my own desires through you. I will not be easily offended or angered by you. I will always rejoice in your truth and in your growth. I will always protect, trust, hope and persevere, not just for me, but also for you. This is what I mean when I tell you I love you.
