Caring for my loved ones brings me joy.
The people I love mean the world to me! My family and friends are true sources of joy for me, and I support them with every opportunity I get. I love to care for those that I love.
I use my own special way to show my family and friends that I care for them. I show physical, emotional, spiritual and financial support whenever I am able to do so.
I care for the well-being of those I love, and do what I can to ensure that they are in a good place.
I enjoy spending time with the children in my life. I seize the opportunity to relate to them on their level so they feel appreciated and feel like their point of view is important. I laugh and act silly with them because I know it makes them feel special.
I sit hand in hand in silence with someone I love because I know it reassures him or her of my love. I feel the peace and contentment running between us as we share a connection that can only be found through love.
I spend time on phone calls with family and friends, even if we are miles apart. That gesture of caring and love brings us closer together and reminds of us days we used to play and work together. I ask about their well-being because it matters to me.
Today, I continue to care for those I love. I get immense pleasure from caring for them, and I know it has a positive impact on their lives as well.
- Am I always available when a loved one needs my support?
- Am I capable of giving tough love to those I care about?
- Do I feel cared for in the same way I care for loved ones?
