“THANK YOU” - Words of gratitude mean recognition of the good another has done to you or for you — simple or deserving of a lifetime of devotion.
“I LOVE YOU” - We need to hear words of love expressed out loud. The story of the insensitive husband who said, “Of course I love you and if I change my mind, you’ll be the first to know!” Telling a child ten times I love you might not be powerful enough to overcome yelling at them once.
“WHAT DO YOU NEED?” - Being conscious that those around you have needs that you can help them with is powerful.
“I’M SORRY” - Indispensable to any person who wishes to heal the hurt that they may have caused — very hard for us to say. We need to admit we have done something wrong which can be very humbling.
