It’s valentine’s day!
A day that has been tagged “love day”. Personally, I am of the opinion that if you have to wait for a certain day to express love, then it’s a pity. Although, I won’t be going into all that valentine “shenanigan”. I will be basking in it… fully! LOL.
So there will be lots of expression of love today, which will range from gift giving, dinners, and even proposals may happen. Basically, it’s going to be a love-filled day. Although, it’s one thing to express the love you think people want, but it’s another thing to express the love they actually need. What better way to know the love a person needs, than to know their love language.
According to Gary Chapman, there are five love languages which are;
- Words of affirmation: This refers to unsolicited compliments. E.g. You’re the best person for me in the world.
- Quality time: This refers to giving someone your undivided attention. E.g. strict alone time, no TV & phones.
- Receiving gifts: This is basically love of thoughtfulness and not materialism.
- Acts of service: This is finding ways to serve your significant other, in relation to doing tasks for them.
- and Physical touch: This is not sexual. It is more of thoughtful touches. E.g. pats on the back, hugs, holding hands.
Now that we know the love languages, won’t it be a lot easier to express love the way people need?
I realised my love languages are words of affirmation and acts of service, after taking the test. So you’re not limited to having just one love language.
I encourage you to take the test and know your language because love is the most important word in the english language – and the most confusing- Gary Chapman.
Happy Valentine and keep the love fire burning!
