Three Words

There are many things that you can do to strengthen your relationships. Often the most effective thing you can do involves saying just three words. When spoken sincerely, these statements often have the power to develop new friendships, deepen old ones and even bring healing to relationships that have soured.
The following three-word phrases can be tools to help develop every relationship.

image, picture, help
Can I Help?
Good friends see a need and then try to fill it. When they see a hurt they do what they can to heal it. Without being asked, they jump in and help out.

image, picture, relationship
I understand you.
People become closer and enjoy each other more when the other person accepts and understands them. Letting your spouse know - in so many little ways - that you understand them, is one of the most powerful tools for healing your relationship. And this can apply to any relationship.

image, picture, relationship
 I respect you.
Respect is another way of showing love. Respect demonstrates that another person is a true equal. If you talk to your children as if they were adults you will strengthen the bonds and become closer friends. This applies to all interpersonal relationships.

image, picture, relationship, miss you
 I miss you.
Perhaps more marriages could be saved and strengthened if couples simply and sincerely said to each other “I miss you.” This powerful affirmation tells partners they are wanted, needed, desired and loved. Consider how important you would feel, if you received an unexpected phone call from your spouse in the middle of your workday, just to say “I miss you.”

image, picture, relationship
Maybe you’re right.
This phrase is very effective in diffusing an argument. The implication when you say “maybe you’re right” is the humility of admitting, “maybe I’m wrong”. Let’s face it. When you have an argument with someone, all you normally do is solidify the other person’s point of view. They, or you, will not likely change their position and you run the risk of seriously damaging the relationship between you. Saying “maybe you’re right” can open the door to explore the subject more. You may then have the opportunity to express your view in a way that is understandable to the other person. 

image, picture, relationship, sorry
 Please forgive me.
Many broken relationships could be restored and healed if people would admit their mistakes and ask for forgiveness. All of us are vulnerable to faults, foibles and failures. A man should never be ashamed to own up that he has been in the wrong, which is saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.

image, picture, relationship, thank you
I thank you.
Gratitude is an exquisite form of courtesy. People who enjoy the companionship of good, close friends are those who don’t take daily courtesies for granted. They are quick to thank their friends for their many expressions of kindness. On the other hand, people whose circle of friends is severely constricted often do not have the attitude of gratitude.

image, picture, relationship
Count on me.
A friend is one who walks in when others walk out. Loyalty is an essential ingredient for true friendship. It is the emotional glue that bonds people. Those that are rich in their relationships tend to be steady and true friends. When troubles come, a good friend is there indicating “you can count on me.”

image, picture, relationship
I’ll be there.
If you have ever had to call a friend in the middle of the night, to take a sick child to hospital, or when your car has broken down some miles from home, you will know how good it feels to hear the phrase “I’ll be there.” Being there for another person is the greatest gift we can give. When we are truly present for other people, important things happen to them and us. 
We are renewed in love and friendship. We are restored emotionally and spiritually. Being there is at the very core of civility.

image, picture, relationship
Go for it.
We are all unique individuals. Don’t try to get your friends to conform to your ideals. Support them in pursuing their interests, no matter how far out they seem to you. God has given everyone dreams, dreams that are unique to that person only. Support and encourage your friends to follow their dreams. Tell them to “go for it.”

image, picture, relationship, love

I love you.
Perhaps the most important three words that you can say. Telling someone that you truly love them satisfies a person’s deepest emotional needs. The need to belong, to feel appreciated and to be wanted. Your spouse, your children, your friends and you, all need to hear those three little words: “I love you.” Love is a choice. You can love even when the feeling is gone.

This last statement added by My friend Sie.

image, picture, relationship, trust
When you love someone with it comes trust. Saying words of trust in any relationship will strengthens the bond. 'I trust you' is such simple statement but gives the wonderful feeling of being trusted.

  1. Hello Asma I agree..can I add something.."I Trust You"..I am on a long distance relationship and this three words must be included..I have always believed that when you love someone with it comes trust..of all those three words that you have said are so true and I think it sums up to one..

    "If you want a relationship to work..then be always willing to learn,grow and find ways to Keep It."

    *hugs*

  10. It's amazing how 3 words can change so many things. At home we are huge fans of "I am sorry" and "I miss you". And as Sie outlined when in a long-distance relationship "I trust you" is the key or you start to become crazy........
    Thanks for another great post Asma. Stay well.

  13. Asma, it's a mystery -- I can't access your blog through my dash board and I had to confront the following negative message whenever I wanted to visit your site.
    Thank God, You reached me through your own effort.

    ********Blog has been removed
    Sorry, the blog at stay-blessed1.blogspot.com has been removed.******** I thought --maybe you have already fired me--Allah naa keray____

    You should be a social psychologist to reform the ill society--Mannerism and your three word would work provided there is an essential ingredient in all of them---that is SINCERITY.
    Misleading with false feelings is dangerous.
    As usual, above is your one of the best posts for the benefit of visiting blogers.
    STAY BLESSED---I mean it sincerely---

  19. very right... i never thought about these...thanks for sharing...
    yes if only we could use the right 3-word phrase and every thing will be ok... every feeling every emotion every action is important in its own right in a different situation...so i hope i will try to use the right phrase at the right time :)

    :)

  20. This is so true. To think these are simple to say but we don't use it all the time. Pride. That's mostly what blinds us into seeing that the person is more important than winning the argument.
