The words "I Love You" are meaningless, Yet I hear it all the time and ever since i was little i knew to fear those words. When I was little i heard my mom and dad say i love you all the time to each other- when i was three they got divorced. Later on my mom and dad met mom new people. My mom met my alcoholic step-dad they said i love you all the time yet my mom hates him and wants to kill him. My dad met my step-mom. Now i hear them yelling at each other for the stupidest reasons.
