I think it's been measurably easier for me to tell people I love them since I've been married. I know there has to be some sort of psychological connection, but I don't have the patience to analyze it right now. What I do know, is that for a long time, telling anyone I loved them was awkward and difficult. Somewhere between my brain and my mouth, the words would get stuck. I'm sure it has something to do with a painful adolescence and fear of rejection and blah, blah, blah... But the point is, I got over it.
And I'm glad I did.
Because love is important.
And who wouldn't love these weirdos?
