Tell Me, I want to know…
Tell me you love me. You might say I should know, I’d like to hear it anyway. Those words are music to my ear and it feels good to hear you say it.
Tell me you like it. Your feedback is important, otherwise I won’t know if my cooking, project, work, etc. passed your approval. Just as important, tell me when you don’t like it. If you mean well, I will not be offended. I’ll take your opinion or comment as constructive criticism to help me improve, do better next time.
Tell me you care. For my well-being, my happiness, my success. It’s nice to know you are concern and that I matter to you. It helps boost my self-esteem knowing I’m worthy of your attention.
Tell me you’re sorry and mean it. Nobody is perfect, we all make mistake. Don’t let pride gets in the way. Take responsibility for your wrong doing and apologize. Humility is a virtue which can take you farther along in life and helps build better relationship.
Tell me you are proud of me. Only then I’d know my hard work, my efforts, my achievements did not go unnoticed; and are good enough. That giving all my best is more important than the outcome.
Tell me I am good, but be honest. Your acknowledgement is important, serving as confirmation. Your recognition and praise are good for my ego, will keep me inspired, and motivated to continue pursuing (my interest, my hobby, etc.); or faced the truth and stop, for I’m just wasting my time.
Tell me I’m bad. The truth hurts, but it shows you care enough to let me know and give me the opportunity to change and make improvements to be a better person.
Tell me you need help. I’m here for you to lend a hand, support or whatever you need help with.. I can’t read your mind, so all you have to do is ask. It takes courage and humility to ask, but you’ll feel better to know you’re not alone.
Tell me thank you.. Don’t take for granted acts of kindness, generosity, help or favors. Show, express your gratitude and appreciation. Besides, being gracious is always a likable trait.
TELL ME… don’t wait too long, for it may be too late.
