    Sometimes you hold back from talking to someone.

    ..not because if your pride or because you fear rejection, but because you know deep down that if they wanted to be in your life, they would've made the ******* effort.

    And LOVE is supposed to be an action word.

    I believe words are important as well, because of how much harm one can do to another with their words, as well as turn someone's entire day around with a kind comment. (which requires the action of moving your mouth and forming that kind comment) just sayin

    My mother has never said a kind word to me

    as a child and as an adult. Her actions are far worst than not ever saying anything kind! Her actions has taught me that I don't ever want to be like her. I watch her with my step father whom is the kindest man and I see how awful she is to him. All she ever talks about is what...

    I am a very trusting

    and usually will believe what someone tells me, until they show me otherwise... once your talk doesn't match your actions, I pull back and only pay attention to their actions or lack of.

    Any pattern of behavior,

    emotion, or action that a person does regularly toward other people will eventually be turned on you. When you see someone in your life treating others in a certain way again and again - then know that that's your future.

    Husband travels for work,

    gone for up to 6 weeks at a time. It gets depressing and sometimes he is insensitive to it. Last week we actually spoke of separation. This week he has had some epiphany and has done a 180. It's been amazing but I am reserved. I take medication, I pray, I exercise...point...

    Maybe I'm old school

    and don't mean to come off as judge mental, but whatever happen to things like commitment, honor and respect for the one you're with? Since when did things like cheating, affairs, one night stands and being with multiple people become such a hobbie or hot trend?

    Before you speak to me about your religion,

    I can't stand someone

    who says all the right things, falling on their sword, and then acts completely differently. Actions do speak louder than words. My husband keeps asking if I think he's crazy. I keep telling him "crazy" is not a clinical term.... But I told him last night that I do think he...

    If you tell your child you love them,

    and never take time for them, they will doubt that love. Give them time, listen to them, share their life with them, and you never have to tell them you love them... they simply know it from your actions. That is true throughout all human interaction - words walk, action talks...

    It's not always quite

    so easy to say the right thing at the right time - not for everyone. It is possible however to show what's on your mind through your actions. Over the years I've learned to NOT trust and NOT fully believe things people say. It's funny that people just really aren't true to the...

    If you are going to help someone Don't expect

    anything in return. Let your kindness leave its mark. For often times we help others With intentions of getting back. That in itself is not true kindness. For there is a saying "Man gives awards but god gives rewards" Your reward is on its way.

    so many times that you begin to realize how important it is to stop and say that's enough coercion for me. Stop talking & show me what you got.

    Words are easy, but I think itโ€™s more

    important to demonstrate you truly care for someone (friend/lover/spouse/etc.) by the way you act and the little things you do for them. Whether you can be with them to demonstrate in person or find ways to show it from a distance, actions truly do speak louder than words.
