A hug is a beautiful gift that we can each give and receive. It is the willingness to show affection. A “I care about you deeply” gesture expressing ones affection for another being. Hugs are comforting and feel good. It is a feeling that at least for a brief moment, time stays still and you feel safe. Being acknowledged in such a way, can make even the not so nice hearts warm up a little inside 🙂
Hugs are a wonderful way to express your love for someone else. Whether it be towards family, friends or your partner. Hugging helps to build trust with one another. As with each hug, walls that defend from uncertainty come down. Giving a hug means to show love and accepting to receive a hug means to accept the other persons love. It calls for both people involved to be vulnerable with each other ❤
I myself, grew up in a home where my family and I would hug. Not only to comfort someone when they were sad but also when we were proud of each other or just felt like giving a hug. I realise that not all families are like this. Everyone has a different normal. For me, I feel like hugs are important and that everyone deserves one regularly. Do you give hugs or receive them often?
Maybe you are the one that offers hugs but does not ever get offered one. That would be an unpleasant position to be in, which we can all relate to in some sense. Just think about any aspect of your life, where you have offered something to others, yet no one has offered the same to you. It could be to cook, run some errands or pick up a parcel for someone that you care about. It can be disheartening when we do nice things for others and not receive anything in return ❤
If this sort of thing happens to you often on a regular basis. You need to first confront the person that you are bothered with and tell them how you feel. If they are not willing to show affection in the same way, you then need to decide if you want to continue to put effort into your relationship with them. This can be with family, friends or a partner. Obviously the complexity of such a confrontation can vary, depending on the relationship that you have with the person you are confronting.
If it is with a family member or friend, you should be able to let them know your thoughts. Whether they get upset or not, do not worry. They need to hear how you feel and acknowledge the ways that they are poorly contributing to the relationship. All that is required, is honesty on your part, it is up to them how they choose to be 🙂
When it comes to a partner, it can be a bit more complex as you have a deep intimate relationship with them. Of course, honesty is important in any relationship but I know that you would not want to hurt them or yourself. So although it may hurt you to be confronting with them, you need to be straight up truthful with how you feel. Come to compromise, which if they cannot agree with you on anything. You will need to re-evaluate your relationship.
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a cute chibi girl hugging an adorable cat, coloured pencil drawing. They both look very sweet and happy hugging. It is now day 17 of my #drawingdailytofightcoronavirus challenge, that I will keep doing daily until we beat coronavirus. Staying at home is making the days go by super fast. Please ensure that you keep staying healthy, be safe and practice social distancing. Stay home so that we can keep reducing the chance of spreading coronavirus (COVID-19) ❤
