It’s easy to hear a snarky tone in your head and visualize eye rolling when you read:
“It’s all about you, Babe.”
Mr. Muscle said these 5 words to me as we were discussing plans for our Valentine’s date.
However, he was completely sincere. He was making it plain that he didn’t want me to consider his preferences. Our outing would revolve around my desires alone.
5 simple words made my knees go weak. 5 words made me feel cherished and honored. 5 words made me feel incredibly humble. When he uttered them he expected absolutely nothing in return.
When he uttered them, I wanted to give him the world. It didn’t make me selfish for more. It made me want to overflow with generosity in return.It’s kind of a divine paradox.
I wonder how your sweetie will react if you utter these 5 words in all sincerity?
