Finding true love is something that many of us feel is not going to happen. So many people pass in and out of our lives without sticking around long enough for real bonds to be created.
But it does happen, and when it does, you will feel differently about love and life. True love brings to life the words 'actions speak louder than words'. That's because when it comes to the real deal, words are nothing compared to actions.
True love is not just found between romantic partners, you find it in family and friends as well. And these people will often show you how they feel rather than tell you.
Words Can Be Hollow
People say things that they don't mean every day. They say 'I'm sorry' or 'I love you!' without actually meaning the words that come out of their mouths. People will tell others that they care about them but they don't.
This is a harsh reality of life and something that we can't control. That is why you have to be careful with what you say.
If you don't mean it, don't say it. And if you say it, follow it up with actions that reflect what you said. Don't be one of the people who say things but don't mean them.
Actions Are Remembered
While words do have impacts and effects on our lives, it is the actions of people that we remember more than their words. Their actions speak directly to our hearts and souls. Likewise, our actions speak to the hearts and souls of those around us.
To make sure that you don't hurt others with your behavior, keep all your promises, act with honor, and guide others to do the same.
Know Your Limits
We are all only human and have limitations. That's why it is wise to know your own so you don't make promises that you can't keep.
You can't tell people that you care about them and then fail on keeping your word. If you don't think you'll be able to do something, don't say you will.
And don't expect people to make promises if you are not sure that they can keep them. Don't put people in difficult situations.
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
When it comes to truly caring for someone, they will not have to ask you to prove it with your actions. You will do so automatically. Not because you feel you have to, but because you want to.
And the same is true of people who really really love and care for you. You won't have to ask them to show it - they'll do so often and in sometimes subtle ways.
True love shows itself in the behaviour of people, not their words.
