As I listened to the audio version of Dr. Gary Chapman’s book, “The 5 Love Languages“, I noticed the timing of my next blog post. At the time of this writing, Mother’s Day is two Sundays away. For my mother, she certainly had gifts as her love language. Though I’m not sure if it was her primary love language or secondary.
One thing is certain. My mother really did treasure the gifts that others have given her. At the same time, my mother knew how to give gifts. Though I don’t think she knew the full extent of what she’s doing. However, it’s in sync with what I learned about Love Language #3, Gifts. I’d like to share what I’ve been learning about this interesting gift.
Do you want help with your relationship with family members and friends? Are you struggling to make connections and it seems the other person is speaking a foreign language? By this, I do not mean that you’re speaking English and the other person is speaking Spanish. I’m talking about the five languages of love described in Dr. Gary Chapman’s “The 5 Love Languages”.
For this blog post, I’ll be focusing on “Words of Affirmation”. It’s not just about a kind word or two. After reading the related chapter, I can see there’s a lot more to it. I’d like to share my own perspective on what I learned in Dr. Gary Chapman’s “The 5 Love Languages“. I’ll be doing the same thing for the other four love languages. Before we continue, let’s start with the obvious question.
