Can you remember the first time you heard the words ‘I love you’?
Perhaps this memory goes back to being a toddler, a love-struck teen on your first date, or hearing Michael Jackson squeak them at you from a TV screen!
No matter how old you were or are, these words hold some of the best memories.
They carry the promise of hope, belonging, being nurtured and feeling loved. They make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. They are what we seek to be at ease in a relationship, friendship or partnership.
In many cases, they can even validate how we feel about ourselves!
Now imagine that you never heard those words before?
How would this affect your life?
This Valentine’s month, it’s all about #loveyourhearing.
