I hug you

When you feel judged
When you think the world doesn´t understand you
When everything seems to be against you
I hug you...

When you have a lump in your throat
When you ask God to come down to embrace you
When you do not see a smile around you
I hug you...

When you ask for help and nobody answers,
When you do not ask for help and they criticize you for it
When you need comfort and a subtle caress
I hug you...

When you want to cry and cry for no reason
When the day is cold and there is no blanket
When you do not trust those who are with you
I hug you...

When you do not want to talk about how you feel
When you hate those well-meaning advices
When you hear scolding and complaining about how you are
I Hug you...

I hug you without saying a word
I hug you just so you can relieve yourself
I hug you without giving you advice you do not need
I hug you for you to feel warm
I hug you even if you do not ask for a hug again
I hug you if you only look for a minute to breathe
I hug you with no other intention than to hold you.

From heart to heart, I hug you.


Happy national hug day to each and everyone!!

To me hugging is a common greeting and expression of warmth, and a meaningful sign showing you care about a person. There's a thin line between platonic hugs of greeting and something more. Smile lg

Hugs,Seem like a simple gesture but it can make a huge difference. You get hugs from the day you were born as a child you just simply don't understand the meaning behind one,its more like "get this this crazy lady off of me she's cutting off my circulation." Shocked but to me as you get older I believe you seem to value this small gesture so much more. Receiving a hug could mean a lot of things to different people. It could mean comfort, love, security, a hug could send your body in an whirlwind. Hugging is like giving another person a piece of you mending you two into one big bundle of love. Hugs give you that warm feeling in the pit of your stomache your heart ignites.
So you ask what does a hug mean to me? It means love,compassion,security, comfort,gentleness it means the world to someone. Embarassed

What is a hug?

A hug is the tenderest caress, the most sublime breeze that can inspire us and comfort us.

A hug is a shelter that to the sad gives joy, giving peace and harmony, drawing a smile.

A hug is the reflection of a pure and sincere love and the deepest affection which is measured to the heavens.

A hug is an "I love you" that is said without words and is understood with the soul when everything is silent.

What exactly is a hug?
A hug is a way to comfort someone in need, it eases out their stress.
Hugs are important. In one way of physical contact, hugging expresses how much you care for that person. Shockingly, you could even say that hugging has changed and affected our world. This small act of kindness, internally does a lot for a person's mind and soul. If they're feeling sad or gloomy, a hug can really tell the person that you care for them, that there's someone that still appreciates and loves them. If they're feeling happy, a hug can spread their happiness and perhaps, even make their happiness stronger. Hugs can make the bonding with your significant other, your best friend, or just a family member even stronger than it already is. Without having to say anything at all, a hug can do a whole lot of actions without you knowing it.
Hugs are a silent touch to the heart. The closest thing, you can get to saying "I'm here for you" without having to say anything at all.

It may be that a hug does not have the solution to the problem that occurs to us, that does not drive away or make disappear what surrounds us, but its magic recomposes our wounds, relieves our suffering and tells us that beyond what happened, there is someone who loves us and cares about us. Because a sincere embrace is to love in full order.
To embrace is to caress the soul of the other person and provide a shelter between our arms. A small gesture but full of feelings that heals and recomposes emotionally. To embrace is to speak the language of the heart.
A hug is an excellent medium of communication that does not need to be spoken or expressed through words.
Hugs are moments full of happiness capable of thrilling even the hardest heart because they have the power to pierce armours.

“Embrace is a wonderful way to give love to those around us because it is to caress the soul of whom we have close”.

Hugging.. is more than just an action. Hugging is Feelings and many
unexplainable words to describe.. A man hugging a women is now rare now in days.. Due to the violence and how generations now in days grow up..
I grew up with a drunk/drug addict violent father. My mother worked so hard for our family but as time went by our family went downfall. The family we used to be was gone. We were all lost my mother hugged us each night before bed back then when i was 16. I'd hear her cry and the screaming after my father comes in late at night. Hearing her bang against the wall as he threw her around. I was just scared couldn't help her. Yet in mornings she would have a smile in her face and hug me before school telling me to behave while all i ever wanted is know how to protect her and stay with her. Devastating continual days go by and about a month later i'd see the difference of her becoming weaker and crying no longer smiling. All i could do was hug her even though she told me she is just resting that she will be okay the next day. My brother and i came back and found her in bed not waking up she had severe depression and committed suicide. My brother and i forgave our father and we keep our mother in our heart (we are both now 21) 5 years with out her and i didn't really see this thread til now but before i uploaded a stream picture thinking of her. Hugging is Loving and holding on to those you love when you don't want to let them go. Feeling that somebody cares for you even through rough times. Always Smile..never give up i also have depression every now and then but i feel her love that i will live life for her and make her proud.

What does hugging mean to me?

I think i was about 13 years old. My aunt had passed away. We had to go to another city for the funeral, to say goodbye for once and for all. Looking at her lying there, i got a scratching feeling in my throat, wanting to cry, but being embarrassed about it, i wanted to look strong. We had to go as a row and tell our well-wishes to her closer relatives. I walked there with wet puppy eyes, i hugged 3 people, simple hugs, there wasn't anything so 'special', felt like any other hug. I stood in front of my cousin, i felt how my tears started to pour down my face, i couldn't hold the sadness within anymore and i just hugged him. That was the most compassionate, tightest and caring hug i have ever felt to this day. It's all i needed on that day.

People don't realize the power of hugs, they can immediately change someone's mood for the day, for years, only if done at a right time and under certain circumstances.
It is a way to show affection towards others. Similar to love, but something you can physically feel, touch and enjoy.

Hugs are the best thing in the world especially if it comes from the right person. I love hugging my husband because being in his arms makes me feel so warm and cozy. I love hugging my sissy pooh and my best is because I love them so much and I just feel like we have an awesome bond that can never be broken. I love hugging my kids because I feel like at that moment we are so happy and were not worrying about anything around us. I think if everyone received more hugs they would be a little happier. Hugs for everyone!!!!!!!

What hugging means to me you ask?
Many people will say "hugging is nothing" "hugs can be fake" etc etc..Well for me hugs are not "fake" and they can't be fake.Hug shows your love for a person that you hugged.It makes that person feel loved and safe in your arms.Is it hard to hug someone?No It's not.Its not hard to hug someone,to show that you care for him/her but think maybe it means the world to that person.Maybe that person is struggling and that one hug can make him/her get up and say "I can do this".Hugs are sweet gesture to show someone how much you care about him/her.Hugs are a thing to remember..When the person you used to hug is not there anymore all you have is a memory of how good you felt when you were in his/her arms.So guys...give hugs and people will hug you too.They will feel happy and It will make you happy too Smile<3

A hug is a positive exchange of energy between two or more people. A hug is a way to share both good and bad times with others. A hug can create a connection that one cannot express in words. Even a small hug makes everyone feel good. A hug can make us feel safe and secure. It can lift our spirits and make us smile. Some people are not comfortable with the physical embrace, yet a quick hug can go a long way. A hug is meant for everyone.
It's all about energy. Good Vibes that raise our vibrations.
