    In silence he held her hand

    and squeezed it gently. No words were said, no sound was made, other than the feeling of her heart beating faster and slowly starting to break into small peaces. Because in that exact moment she knew. She knew that it was the last time he would hold her hand. The last time she...

    It is really tough when someone gets used to

    not having their words and actions compared - it excludes trust from the relationship. Authenticity and accountability are missing. Worse still, is when such a person learns to rationalize to the point of believing their words were followed by (non-existent) actions. Or they...

    ANYONE CAN TALK! Anyone can be nice

    but not all can be mean… Anyone can say sorry but not all can forgive… Anyone can talk about other people behind their backs but not all can say it to your face! Anyone can say what he or she can do but not all admit what they can't do… Anyone can say something they're not...

    Almost everything is easier to be said

    than it is to actually be done. That's exactly why actions speak louder than words.

    I hate when someone says they're going to do

    something... and they don't. Why bother saying you're going to do something if you're not going to do it? :(

    It’s easy for a guy to say he loves you,

    but DEMONSTRATING that love is what really matters. Guys tell girls they love them and promise 'happily ever after' all the time! They say this to keep you on the shelf. Their little shelf of ‘toys,’ so they can pull you down and play with you when they are bored with their...

    I think my roommate is hinting at something more

    than what we are now. I mean she's so religious, opposite of myself, so I don't think she would actually do anything, or cross that "line" so to speak. She's just always dropping hints at girls being with other girls, and tonight about roommates being with other roommates. I've...

    Women wonder, why they get hurt

    when a man tells them they love them but, continues to hurt them. Never do they stop to think what actions lead for them to know that they are loved...Does he speak to you in Words or Actions..

    You can say you love someone all you want

    but unless you prove it then it's just words! You can say you're sorry for my pose of a loved one but coming to the visitation and funeral will show you are truly thinking about me at that time.

    Our actions tell people much more about

    ourselves than what we say. We love to talk, and appear to be sincere. But it is our actions that really speak volumes. My favorite saying of all time is " If I love you I need not speak of my love you will know without any words". SOmeone once said " I left footprints in his...

    As another year (and relationship) close,

    Love is not an instant feeling.

    It needs time. Guy who says " I love you" right away is not sincere in his words. You cannot believe him just because he SAYS something. Make him SHOW you. You have to FEEL the love, not just hear the words. Demonstrating that LOVE is what really matters. 👍

    because I don't speak about this with anyone in my personal life. I was crazy, head over heels for my ex. He left me and went back to his ex and married her. 2 years later, he divorces her and returns to me. I still love him but it's kind of hard to trust someone of whom made...

    Sometimes it is just unbelievably unfair.

    Some people say sweet things without really being sincere. You get that unavoidably happy feeling, especially when that person's friendship means something to you. And then what follows is utter confusion, since you can't seem to reconcile his actions and what he says to you. It...

    A true gentleman doesn’t backtrack on his

    words, but walks the talk. You rest assured that he only makes commitments that he intends to keep. It can be extremely annoying when a guy insists that he will do something, but never gets around to do it. A real gentleman keeps his promises...👍

    Actions will always speak louder

    than words. People can say whatever they want, but if they're actions don't show it then what they say doesn't really mean a whole lot.

    I fully believe actions speak louder

    than words. But I also believe words can hurt more than actions. Everything is relative, and based situation to situation. All in all, I believe in any capacity we (as humans) have very few ways to truly prove ourselves. And sadly we tend to ruin ourselves.

    Often people hide behind words.

    And your deeper instinct will feel and sense the truth. For it isn't what is said, it is all the little colors and nuances shimmering behind those words.

    Someone can lie about what they have done,

    or what they plan to do... But in the end... The lie always appears, because your words were lies you thought I wanted to hear and your actions, once again, failed to be acted out. A liar will always lie, especially if they have gotten away with so much already!

    It is easy to speak about a problem then to go

    and solve. Actions speaks louder but they are also more difficult and that is why many people just kepp it up with the speaking.
