How do you prefer to be loved? How do you love others? You may have an idea already for how you love others and how you want to be loved but you can take this quick quiz to learn what your love language is.
There are 5 Love Languages:
Loving through Acts of Service
Loving through Affirmation
Loving through Quality Time
Loving through Physical Touch
Loving through Gifts
A colleague of mine recommended The 5 Love Languages book to me recently and I am finding it rather intriguing. I have learned so much about myself just by spending a few moments taking the Love Languages quiz. By taking the quiz and reading a little bit of the book from the excerpts I found online, I was able to get a good idea of how D prefers to be loved. Because of what I know now, cleaning the bathrooms after a busy work week doesn't seem so bad because I know that he feels loved and appreciated through acts of service. Before knowing that, I would get resentful and upset with him. I would wonder why he wasn't cleaning the bathrooms! I have learned that I too feel loved and appreciated through acts of service. That explains why I am on cloud 9 the nights he makes dinner for me and it is ready and waiting when I get home from work.
I only took the quiz and read a little bit but I am so excited for my book to arrive.
I can't wait to learn and reflect on me in order to continue to build my relationship with D.
How have you worked on your relationship lately?
