1/ THREAD: When say, "I love you" — are you *really* thinking about your love for this person? FACT: most people don't. It rapidly becomes a perfunctory act. Don't let this happen.

#EmotionalIntelligence #Mindfulness #Love
2/ If you're already guilty of this sometimes (most of the time?) — stop. Concentrate on your love as you're professing it. Feel it deeply. A similar phenomenon occurs with all emotions.

#EmotionalIntelligence #Mindfulness #Love
3/ To clarify — I'm not suggesting you don't love that person, but *they* and *you* will both feel it much more deeply if you focus/change your focus.
