You may love the ladies in your life but sometimes, they need a bit of affirmation of your affections.
When it comes to the women in your life, showing them that you love and appreciate them is important. While you might believe that they already know how genuine your feelings for them are, sometimes, they like to hear you say it. With everyone dealing with their own hardships, they just want to know that they matter and are special to you.
So here are six ways to make her feel significant this International Women's Day:
Not everyone can see how much hard work she puts into making the bond between you two stronger. It seems almost effortless the way she ensures you never want for love and affection. But while your actions are sometimes louder than words in terms of showing your appreciation, she might not see it. So verbally tell her how much you appreciate her for all that she does.
Everyone has flaws and she's accepted yours. While you may have your fights, she genuinely doesn't want to change who you are. So show her the same courtesy. It's not that she doesn't know that she makes mistakes and has her quirks, it's just that she'd like to know that you are okay with her just as she is.
Whether she's your mother, your sister, your wife, or your friends, there must be painful emotions she's been bottling up in order to keep others from being burdened by it. However, everyone reaches a point where they need to let it out and that's where you can help by listening to her release her feelings. It shows that you genuinely care about how she's doing.
She doesn't need big and expensive gifts to see your love for her. Flowers, chocolates, her favorite food, a locket with a picture, or even a surprise visit can make her day. Though they might be small, she knows that it's the thought that counts. The fact that you were thinking of her shows that you consider her to be one of your top priorities and that can make her feel special.
No matter who she is in your life, she must be overworking herself in order to keep her house and her work running smoothly. Whether it's taking care of her kids, doing the household chores on her own or working hard to build a career, she barely has any time for herself. So gift her that. Offer to take over some errands that are barring her from engaging in self-care and let her take the day off to just put her feet up and relax or do the things she likes to do in her downtime.
This Women's Day, take her to her favorite coffee shop or spend the day with her at the beach. Do the things she likes to do because then she knows that you care enough to put her first. And while taking up activities that she enjoys, create meaningful and happy memories with her. It'll give her something to smile about when she has to face hard times.
Though it's Women's Day only once a year, the women in your life shouldn't have to feel special on just one occasion. These women give their all to love you and build a deep bond with you. So honoring her and that bond every day by showing your appreciation, love, respect, and commitment to her can mean a lot more than doing all of it on only one day.
