Have you ever heard of the 5 Love Languages? The 5 Love Languages are 5 ways that most people feel loved. They include: acts of service, quality time, gifts, words of affirmation, and physical touch. The key is to make sure you are loving your spouse in the way they feel loved. Now at a glance this seems pretty easy and most of assume we are doing that. However, there are two things to keep in mind. First, we often show love the way we like to receive love. Therefore, for me I often ask Ryan if I can help him do anything or try to spend time with him. That is because I like to recieve quality time and acts of service to feel loved. However, those are not his primary love languages. (We took the assessments early on in our relationship which has helped us to understand each other better.) So although we feel like we are showing our love to our spouses, they may not be feeling as loved if that is not their language. Secondly, sometimes after learning of the 5 Love Languages we assume we know our spouses love language. This is not always the case! Again, you think you are speaking their language but you are not. Simply ask your significant other to take the assessment so you know what their love language is! You can take it to!
Come on, I mean if we are going to go through all the effort to make sure our men feel loved don’t we want to make sure they ARE ACTUALLY feeling loved? I have heard several situations where one person is working so hard to show they care, yet the other person is complaining they never feel loved. Why is that? Because they are not speaking the right love language!
With that all being said starting on Valentine’s Day there is going to be a five week Love Language Challenge. The website kind of keeps it vague about how it is going to work, but it seems kind of exciting! I have signed up for it and am very anxiously awaiting the start of the challenge!
If you know your significant others love language and try to speak it often, go for a challenge, see what this is all about! If you don’t know your significant others love language, but wonder what this is all about and if it can really change your relationship, see what this is all about! Remember this starts on Valentine’s Day so go ahead and sign up for this challenge today!
