Focus on this scenario: The apocalypse is drawing near and you are very close to losing your family. You don't hesitate to tell your family members one last thing before the world ends. What would you tell them? I would tell my family members "I know you're not perfect, but I enjoyed living life with you." I wouldn't want to say a cliche "I love you" statement. I am currently fighting with my family members now, and I feel like this would be the most relevant thing to say. Before we are separated for all eternity, I want to them to know that I don't hate them. We get into fights now and then, but that doesn't erase the love you have for someone, usually. I think this scenario is a good thing to imagine.
