Episode 32: The First Time Saying I Love You

I wanted to reveal my authentic self and expose my true emotions but feared being rejected and abandoned by the object of my affection.

I was a vieja when I said ‘I love you’ for the first time. That’s 36 years old to you. Yes, you read that right. THIRTY SIX not 16.

The man I professed my love to was Dave…Boo..my fiancé and baby daddy. I loved someone else before him – two men in fact – but I never had the courage, the cojones to utter those heavy, three little words.

Why is it so hard to say ‘I love you’? Vulnerability. I struggled with being vulnerable. Still do, actually. I wanted to reveal my authentic self and expose my true emotions but feared being rejected and abandoned by the object of my affection. I am better at that now…sometimes…but in the past, I didn’t think or feel that I was good enough, that I deserved healthy and reciprocal love. And I was terrified that if I said ‘I love you’ I wouldn’t hear the same loving words in return. Instead, I kept my mouth shut and suppressed my feelings.
