It’s a long way from disillusionment to trust and beautiful words simply will not do.
Words, enchanting and endearing, big and important words somehow become not enough. Not when bits of your heart have been slowly torn away. With such incredible words, corresponding actions must follow, or else these love statements will end up achieving the complete opposite effect. From a sincere, adoring lover, you’ll turn into a liar.
After a while, actions do speak louder than words. Whomever you may love – don’t just say it, don’t “wear it out”, show it. It’s not necessarily the grand gestures (although an occasional one never hurts 🙂 ). It’s the day to day things; it’s proving that you care enough to pay attention to the mundane details of your loved one’s life.
It’s being brave enough to stick by when the going gets tough.
It’s quite a long way back from disenchantment to trust, but it’s not an impossible road to take. All it requires is the courage to act on those amazing-sounding words we all love to utter.
