What is a hug?

Well, it is when someone wraps their arms around you and squeezes. There are different kinds: friendly, supportive, loving.

A hug has many meanings:

Thank you for being there.
I'm glad to see you.
You make me so happy.
I love you.
You are special.
I'm here for you.

There has to be therapeutic benefits of hugs as well. Think of the time you felt alone or discouraged, someone wrapped their arms around you and everything seemed right with the world.

It doesn't have to be a bear hug, but just the simple gesture means so much. What makes it even better? When you want a hug, it just happens, and you don't have to ask. Then you know, that person wanted to hug you too.
