Sometimes when you are with someone whose presence in your life is greatly appreciated, they do not always know how important they are to you. If you want them to know, you have to show it to them. You have to make them feel like they are needed, wanted and loved. When someone really listens to us when we talk it shows that they value our opinion, it tends to make us feel good about ourselves. It makes us feel like we are needed. This is a very important thing for lovers to do for one another. Listen carefully to what they have to say and then show that you value their conversation. Know that it’s okay to be independent, but in a relationship it makes a person feel important when they can help their lover.
Knowing that you are needed can give you a sense of security. So, with that in mind, be sure to allow your lover to help you when help is offered freely and it doesn’t put them out too much for your liking, you know? With that as well, showing a person respect is a great way to show them that they are important. Never be condescending to, or about, your lover and if you are, be sure to apologize. This goes for in private, in public, when your lover is with you and when they are not. In other words, saying anything less than neutral about them is inappropriate, even when they are not around to hear it. There is no way to make a person feel unimportant and unloved faster than speaking ill of them. So always speak highly of them, they are your other half. <3
