    when my ex had said he thought he loved me, and I thought the same. I always have a hard time telling someone I love them, so I just tend to stay quiet when they say it, but they mostly understand. My ex was one of those people, but before he could say that it was okay I don't...

    When someone's words

    and someone's actions tell two different stories, believe the actions - it's what people do that tells you what they really want, and who they really are.

    Actions go a long way

    for me. If you care about me, or feel some type of way, not only let me know, but show it! 👌 You can tell someone something all day, everyday, but if you're not gonna make an effort to actually show it, then what's tha point?
