‘You Do My Head In, But I Love You’ is the perfect card for that special someone who knows just how to get on your nerves, but you love them all the same.
Why not make their day by giving them this?
Love is implied, you might say. But there’s good reason to say it, too.
“It’s the oxygen for the relationship,” says FIU psychologist Lisa Arango. “Telling somebody you love them feeds the relationship, keeps it alive.”
It reinforces your feelings and helps remind your loved ones – whether your spouse, sweetheart, child or parent – that you are there for them and that they matter to you.
“What people are really looking for is emotional presence,” Arango explains. We can physically be standing right next to someone and yet be miles apart emotionally.
‘Are you there for me?’ is a key question we ask ourselves, according to psychologist Sue Johnson, the founder of emotionally focused couples therapy. This lies at the heart of how we function.
Humans are made for connection, Arango says. “We are constantly turning toward or away from each other in relationships.”
According to renown psychologist John Gottman’s theory, one person in a relationship will “reach out.” This could be anything from an invitation to have dinner from a prospective sweetheart to an 80-year-old man starting a conversation with his wife and suggesting a TV show might be fun to watch.
This isn’t just how romantic relationships work. This is how all our relationships – particularly the bond we form with our parents – work.
