Do you struggle to show the people you love that you care about them? Although you know that you care, it can be difficult to show it in a way that you feel comfortable with. You can’t always assume that they know how you feel; people accept love in different ways. Here are some ideas to help you show the people you love that you care:
Tell Them How You Feel
Sometimes, you don’t need to do anything at all to show the people you love you care. All you have to do, is tell them! They say actions speak louder than words, but it’s still nice to hear it every now and again. It’ll be especially nice for them if you don’t talk about the way you feel often. You don’t want to look back one day and wish you’d had told somebody special how you felt.
Treat the people you care about every now and again. If you’re out and about and you spot something they might like, treat them. Buy them a coffee. Buy them a small gift. You could even make them something! Show them that you are thinking about them and they’ll really appreciate it.
Do Something to Help Them
Do something to help the people you love. Think about things they’ve told you lately. Are they struggling to sleep as they’ve just had a baby? Offer to babysit for a little while. Take them shopping if they struggle to do it themselves. You don’t always have to wait for somebody to ask you for help to help.
Be Honest With Them
Being honest with the people you love is a good way to show them you care. However, make sure you’re mindful of the way your honesty comes across. You don’t want it to hurt their feelings. Make sure you’re sensitive, and whatever you say to them, you say with love.
Make Up With Them
Maybe you and somebody you love have ‘fallen out’ for some reason. Make up with them. Even if you don’t think you’re in the wrong, it doesn’t matter. Take a look at the bigger picture. Your relationship with this person is about so much more than who’s wrong or right. Share a hug with them and put it behind you!
Pick Your Battles
Arguing with the people you love is normal. However, you shouldn’t argue about every tiny little thing. Pick your battles. Make sure that when you bring something up, it’s important. Otherwise, arguments could start for no particular reason. You really don’t want to get into that habit!
Surprising somebody you love is a lovely way to show them you care. Why not take them out for the day? Make them dinner? There are so many ways you can surprise them that will mean a lot to them.
Your relationships will go from strength to strength when you show the people you love you care. You’ll have a huge sense of wellbeing too. Start today and you’ll love the results!
