What, exactly, does that mean? I am pondering this tonight, after seeing several family members today. But, it also applies to friends. And family. And co-workers you are close to. I am wondering. Anymore, this phrase seems to have taken on the off handed “See ya”, or “Call me”, or “Catch ya later”, type of saying. It’s easy, it’s quick, it’s convenient. I am also guilty of saying this. But, what does it really mean? Is it really a new age saying – in passing? You have an affection for, but not a closeness to someone? You care about this person, but, a quick hug, and this phrase, is the end of your responsibility ?
Now, understand, I am not talking girlfriend/boyfriend, married, Mother/daughter, or Father/ son kind of “Love you”.
I have always believed that if you said that word, LOVE, you had an obligation. Otherwise, why bother? Your obligation, was to be a physical, but more importantly, an Emotional presence in that person’s life. Maybe, it’s just me.
I know – the world, and customs, and sayings, are changing. I get it. I just wish people would put more thought into the words they say.
