One of my favorite concepts in Psychology is The Love Languages by Dr. Gary Chapman in his world-renowned book.
Dr. Chapman identified 5 love languages: Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts, Quality Time, and Physical Touch. Each one is important and drives expressions of love in unique ways. Learning your partner’s and your own primary love language will help create a stronger bond in your relationship. Love languages are often thought of in the concept of romance but can also be tailored and applied to friendships, working relationships, dating, etc!
Here’s a visual of how to speak your partner’s love language followed by a few questions to ponder below it:
Observe Your Own Behavior — How you express love could be the way in which you like to receive love.
Observe What You Request of Others — Our requests tend to indicate our emotional needs.
Listen to Your Complaints — Our complaints often reveal our deep emotional hurts—areas in which we have needs.
Ask the Right Questions — What do you like or appreciate most about your existing relationships?
