Authors note: No names are mentioned, so whether this is Imzadi is up
you. I had a conversation with a friend about the impact of certain words
on personal relationships and I got to thinking.
This is a really short piece. And I do mean short.
Words are extremely powerful. They can hurt. Ruin. Or heal. Words can
bring happiness and calm or sadness and pain. Some words ought to remain
unsaid, while others needs to be spoken
But with the words come expectations. Some words carry so much weight that
sometimes we rely on actions to communicate what we feel. Perhaps because
it seems less risky. Words once spoken cannot be taken back, and they have
the power to change almost anything.
Once theyre out there, floating in the space between us, once such words
are spoken, a relationship will change forever. Change can be a blessing
in itself a chance to upset the status quo. A chance to escape the
confines of a situation, which is no longer desireable
But, on the other hand, sometimes the status quo is comforting. Its safe.
Uncomplicated. Or at least less complicated than the reality that may
emerge as a result of those certain words being spoken.
I love you
Three little words, so simple, so significant, and often the hardest ones
