SPEAK MY LOVE LANGUAGE
Telling someone you love them does not always need to involve the words “I love you."
EVERY SINGLE PERSON UNDERSTANDS LOVE AND EXPRESSES IT IN A DIFFERENT WAY. YOU MIGHT SEND A TEXT TO A FRIEND, DELIVER SOME FLOWERS TO A FAMILY MEMBER, OR DM AN ACQUAINTANCE WHO HAS INSPIRED YOU IN SOME WAY.. WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE, YOU'RE SPREADING LOVE IN YOUR OWN WAY. YOU COULD COMPLETELY TRANSFORM SOMEONES DAY, WEEK, OR MONTH JUST BY THIS SMALL GESTURE OF KINDNESS. DO YOU KNOW YOUR LOVE LANGUAGE?
WE ALL GIVE AND RECEIVE
Don't mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts
thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift.
If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that
you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever
was sacrificed to bring the gift to you.
A missed birthday, anniversary, or a thoughtless gift would be disastrous –
so would the absence of everyday gestures.
Gifts are visual representations of love and are treasured greatly.
ACTS OF SERVICE
Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on
an "Acts of Service" person will speak volumes.
The words he or she most wants to hear: "Let me do that for you." Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them
tell speakers of this language their feelings don't matter.
Finding ways to serve speaks volumes to the recipient of these acts.
WORDS OF AFFIRMATION
Actions don't always speak louder than words.
If this is your love language, compliments mean the world to you.
Hearing the words, "I love you," are important –
hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward.
Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.
Kind, encouraging, and positive words are truly life-giving.
When In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, "I love you,"
like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical,
but really being there - with the TV off. fork and knife down, and all chores
and tasks on standby - makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Qualitv Time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.
This language isn't all about the bedroom.
A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly,
very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches
on the arm, shoulder, or face – they can all be ways to show excitement,
concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial,
while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.
Physical touch fosters a sense of security and belonging in any relationship.
