5 Reasons To Hug Somebody Today
Hugs are an important expression of affection. By hugging someone, you remind them that you care about them and support them. I remember the time when I was a child. I am not fond of hugging my mother because my mother is not used to hugging me either. My mother is always busy with her business and my father as well. The only hug I remember when I was a child was from my grandfather. Every time he walks inside the house, he will look for me and hug me then give me his “pasalubong”.
The time comes when my grandfather died, then do not have now someone to hug me. I was very sad and yearn for his presence. When I got sick at the age of 18 due to Dengue fever. I remember my mother was with me all the time. During that time I felt her love by taking good care of me. I remember when they told me I lost consciousness. My mother was crying and she hugged me so much. I do not remember her hug.
But my “heart” do remember.
From that day on, I will always treasure that moment. For that moment was the only moment that I felt unconditional love from my mother. Every time my mother hugs me, I can't help myself but cry.
Well, this is just a sharing from my personal experience. The experience that a simple hug can really make a difference. A big one.
So for a little inspiration to increase your happiness, here are the top five reasons to hug somebody today:
1 For couples. Grab a Kiss and Hug. Remember when you first starting dating and you couldn’t keep your hands off of each other? You took every opportunity to grab a discrete kiss or hug or squeeze hands. Why stop showing affection? Not only does this remind you and your honey how important you are too each other, it’s actually good for you!
2 Hugging sure beats crying. Hug a friend in need; I am pretty sure your friend will never forget the caring you showed during the time of need.
3 Love makes the world go 'round, hugs help you gather it in. A hug can be given for no reason at all and given to those, both big and small. We’re never too old to feel the joy it brings as it is one of life’s most pleasing things.
4 For parents. Do you hug them often? You should! If you want to see your mom cries…hug her and tell her how much you love her from the very moment you saw her too. It’s never too late to express your love by hugging her right?
5 And the most important thing. Hug yourself. Love yourself. Always pay yourself first. Face the mirror and tell yourself “You are awesome”
