The first day of the Ber months, it is not a love month; just want to post something about love. A friend showed me an article about the five of languages of love. Shame, I’m 28 and I didn’t have any idea about these languages. Let me give it a space…
Words of Affirmation
The power of saying nice words that could build your mate’s self image and confidence never fails to brighten a partner whose love language is receiving words of affirmation.
Some spouses believe that being together, doing things together and focusing in on one another is the best way to show love. If this is your partner’s love language, turn off the TV now and then and give one another some undivided attention.
It is universal in human cultures to give gifts. They don’t have to be expensive to send a powerful message of love. Spouses who forget a birthday or anniversary or who never give gifts to someone who truly enjoys gift giving will find themselves with a spouse who feels neglected and unloved.
Acts of Service
Discovering how you can best do something for your spouse will require time and creativity. These acts of service like vacuuming, hanging a bird feeder, planting a garden, etc., need to be done with joy in order to be perceived as a gift of love.
Sometimes just stroking your spouse’s back, holding hands or a peck on the cheek will fulfill this need.
All five are my love languages but the strongest language is Quality Time. Nothing beats someone who never fail to find time to be with me. Whether it just plain talking or spending time on an activity. It is priceless. Thus, never use the “busy” on me because I will not use it on you unless I am mad. 😀
