4 Reasons To Tell People You Love Them

Love is an important emotion, make sure to tell people you love them.

4 Reasons To Tell People You Love Them

As someone who recently lost a loved one, I know how crucial it is to tell the important people in your life that you love them. Here are four reasons to tell people you love them.

1. Life is Short

This point is stated very often, but it cannot be stressed enough. Your time here on Earth is very short. No one knows when their time will end, so it is important to make every day count. In the words of Judy Shepard, the mother of a young man who was brutally murdered because of his sexuality; "Go home, give your kids a hug, and don't let a day go by without telling them that you love them." This should be true for everyone. People should hug their loved ones and tell them that they love them every single day. Life is too short to waste time being mad at people, or to go a single day without telling people that you love them.

2. You don't know what kind of day someone is having

This is another point that people state extremely often. People have days that are tough no matter who they are. You never know, telling someone that you love them could make their day. When people are having a bad day, and nothing seems to be going right, it is simple things that can make a big difference. Hearing the words, "I love you" can change a person's entire outlook on the day.

3. You don't want to live your life with regret

No one knows how you are feeling or what you are thinking except yourself. When you talk to people and let them know what you are thinking and feeling, you let them into your head and your heart. When people do not tell someone that they love them, they end up regretting it. The person that someone loves, but are too afraid to tell usually ends up being "the one that got away".

4. You Can Spread the Love

The words you say and the feelings pass on to others are contagious. If you hurt someone, and cause them to have a bad day, then they will walk around with a negative attitude all day because someone made them upset. The same thing goes for love. If you spread love to other people, and let them know that you love them, then they will spread that love, and have a positive attitude throughout the day.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
