Chérie(Chéri). Tranlation from French; Darling, Sweetheart, Beloved.
Terms of endearment are so very human. They form as part of our love language, strengthening our bonds with playful expressions of devotion that remind us of the intimacy shared.
There is a Darling inside all of us. That sweet and vulnerable part of us that was designed to give and receive love. Even in a world that demands us to be strong, that challenges us and calls for our warrior selves, we are Darlings. Our softeness and yearning, our willingness to be loved is what makes us human.
During this summer of love and reconnecting with the world, we are reminded to honour the Darling inside ourselves. To let her emerge from our tough exterior.
