Like the alliteration with my three L'sfor the title? Wicked lol
Love Languages are critical to relationships to foster communication and understanding. If you tell someone who only speaks French, "I love you" in English, repitition will be futile because they simply do not understand. Here are the five love languages posed by Dr. Gary Chapman:
1. Quality Time
2. Physical Touch
3. Words of Affirmation
4. Acts of Service
5. Receiving Gifts
(in order of my most dominant/fluent)
I was this close (imagine my index and thumb pierced very closely together) to ending an association because I did a mini analysis and concluded that it was not mutually beneficial. I felt as if I was the only one contributing while they simply received without a thought of reciprocating. I was convinced that we enjoy each other's company but I felt my feelings were based on a desire to share/grow and maybe they merely considered me for entertainment.
And then I remembered...
IF SOMEONE DOES NOT LOVE YOU THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE LOVED, THAT DOES NOT MEAN THEY DONT LOVE YOU.
