Family does not often say I love you Watch
When I end a phone call with my family I always tell them I love you icase somethng happened and because I do but when my mum and her mum end a phone call they never say I love you I feel like ym family are not so fond on epressing feelings. I asked my mum and grandma why she said i know I am loved i don't need to hear it but don't you feel better when someone says I love you and its nice to be reminded that you are loved.
And I've never hugged or kissed anyone in my family since I was very small, either.
I guess maybe they think actions speak louder than words, as I feel that's what my family has always been like that. Occasionally they'll say it but its usually shared with a hug, or in a card, or in a "grand" gesture.
I completely agree with you that it is nice to hear someone say 'I love you', but at the same time not everyone feels they need to say it to prove it. I'm far away from my family because I'm at uni and I know they miss me and love me, but they won't always say I love you at the end of a phone call.
Sometimes my parents will say it, rarely my dad.
Especially if I'm going through a tough time or whatever they say it more
