    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.

    Amen!!:D my ex (was a short relationship) told

    me he loved me, but he never took the time out and made a real effort to try to initiate a conversation. Sometimes even a little message like good morning or good night can really make someone feel wanted, and it doesnt take a lot of time. It just shows that the other person is...

    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.

    My parents always tell me

    that your actions are what matters, not your words. You may say, I love you. You may say, I'm sorry. You may say, I will. But will you? Will you show people with your action and not your words?

    Words are merely these sensory things gliding

    across our throats, released by the whip of our tongues to interrupt empty space between us. They don't 'mean' much to me. Say something, say anything you'd like and see it fade into the void of ignorance we have weaved for ourselves. It's more convenient to be apathetic. Unless...

    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..

    I do believe this. You can apologize all you

    want. You can make promises and tell me you are gonna do something. But at the end of the day an action is what builds a relationship. What you do for someone. What they do for you. Talking is an action. Start conversations with people. Listen to what they have to say and add...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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. 👍

    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.

    If you are a person with sound character,

    you say what you mean and do what you say. It's too easy to assume others do the same and to fall for their empty words over and over. I learned the hard way that some people (especially passive aggressives) have no intention of doing what they say. The words are empty...

    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...
