Do words lose meaning or importance to you if you say them too much?

If you said giraffe 50 times in your head would it lose it's meaning or importance after a while?

Giraffe...no.  "I'm sorry"definitely does.  Saying "I love you, too"...for some reason, to me, when "too" is added, it just doesn't mean the same as saying "I love you".  That probably sounds weird but I can't help it.

depends on the words and meaning behind them. If you're just saying a word to please someone then the meaning is I am saying this to please you but not necessarily because I mean it.

Not something simple like that but words like "I'm sorry" and "I love you" lose their meaning if they are repeated over and over and over with absolutely no change in action or behavior.

I bet if you said it 100 times it would mean elephant.

If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it.
Anything you want to, do it.
Want to change the world... There's nothing to it.

  NO I tell my sons and huby I love them many times a day. It doesn't make them less important or less meaningful

I guess it would really have to be a phrase about a giraffe, not simply the word giraffe.
