The 5 Love Languages
September 11, 2019
What’s up guys, today’s video is about the 5 Love Languages. This is based on the wildly popular Book by Dr. Gary Chapman. If you haven’t heard of it, the concept is that we each have a love language for giving and receiving love. And it’s possible for couples to truly love each other, but to feel unloved because they don’t speak the same love languages First, you have to understand your own primary love language Then you have to seek to understand the love language of your loved ones so that you can treat them accordingly and make sure that they feel truly loved This applies not only to couples, but to your relationships with any loved ones including your parents, siblings, and friends. The first love language is: Words of Affirmation Sometimes words can speak louder than actions. If this is your love language, then compliments, words of encouragement and appreciation mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important, as well as hearing the reasons behind that love. On the flip side, insults, criticism, and demanding words are especially hurtful to these types. Tip: If your loved one speaks the language of “words of affirmation,” Love language number two: Acts of Service In this case, actions speak louder than words. People who speak this love language express their love by doing things for their loved ones, and they feel the most loved when their loved ones do things for them. Examples of acts of service could be anything from washing the dishes to walking the dog, cooking a meal, running errands whatever it takes to get their to-do lists off their back Laziness, broken commitments, and giving them more work are huge no-nos for these people. Tip: If your loved one speaks the language of “acts of service,” Love language number three: Receiving Gifts For some people, receiving gifts is their primary love language. Not to be mistaken for materialism; these people thrive on the thoughtfulness, love and effort behind each gift. If this is your love language, then the perfect gift or gesture means that you are cared for, and prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. On the flip side, a missed birthday, anniversary, or a thoughtless gift would be a disaster for these people. Tip: If your loved one speaks the language of “receiving gifts,” Love language number four: Quality Time These people feel the most loved you’re fully present and engaged with each other. They associate love with your full and undivided attention. Being there for these people is so important, but really being there—without any phones, TV, or any distractions is important to make them feel truly loved. On the flip side, distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful to these types. Tip: If your loved one speaks the language of “quality time,” Love language number five: Physical Touch A person whose language is Physical Touch is naturally very touchy Physical contact is the most important to these types, even in simple acts. Hugs, kisses, or simple touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—can be ways to show that you really love these people. On the flip side, neglect and abuse are unforgivable and destructive to these people. Tip: If your loved one speaks the language of “physical touch,” Alright – so what is your primary love language?
