I think I've hidden this secret long enough. I am a hugger. I really like hugs. I've tried to fight it. I've said I wasn't a hug person. But I lied. I think there is something great about someone being so special to you that you want to hug them.
I have friends who don't like to hug, and that is fine. But if you're like me, and didn't want to hug someone in fear of what they though of you, stop caring. You do you. Be you!
I have a son who is a hugger and I originally felt like I needed to reign him in. Then I realized...if you are going to love someone, love them with all you got, however you want. Be a hugger. Don't be a hugger. They are both ok.
