It is Italian for "affectionate". Being affectionate to me is showing others you care, letting them know that you love them and that you will be there for them always. I truly care about my friends and family and I want them to know that I love them. Whether through a smile, an embrace, a kiss, or an act of kindness, I hope to bring warmth into other people's hearts. It makes my day if I can at least make one person happy or feel loved. I may care too much sometimes, but it is only because family and friends are really important to me. Having the word in Italian is special to me because Italian was my first language and those Italian traditions and family values are a big part of who I am and in what I believe.
