T-35 : Love Lack
I grew up not getting much practice at saying, "I love you". As a consequence, I still have a difficult time saying it. I'll often even retort to an "I love you" from Tara with a "ditto" or a "me, too" or some other feeblishly humorous attempt at a retort. I'm more comfortable making light of situations than I am engaging in the amorous moment, I suppose. Part of my problem is that I see too many trite "I love you"s said that aren't really backed up with meaning. Somewhere in all of this is some balance. I need to say it a little more often, with feeling. Which side of the love scale are you on; a little too heavy, a little too light, or just right?
