Have you read the books by Gary Chapman entitled, The 5 Love Languages? If you have not then I strongly suggest you get your hands on one of these books. Mr. Chapman has written a number of versions of his original The 5 Love Languages including The 5 Love Languages of Singles, The 5 Love Languages of Children and The 5 Love Languages of Teenagers. These books will help you mature the many relationships you have in your life in a way that is truly meaningful. These books will not only help you learn your own love language but also help you understand your spouse, child or teenager, friends and co-workers. Don’t like to read, they come in e-books and audio editions too.
Below is a post that was on Facebook recently, it summarizes the 5 Love Languages and include do’s and don’ts. While the chart is self-explanatory I still recommend getting a hold of a copy of whichever of the versions of The 5 Love Languages you are interested in and really getting into the reasoning and logic behind each love language.
I have read The 5 Love Languages and The 5 Love Languages of Teenagers. And while at times I still struggle to keep in mind the differences between myself and my husband and how we respond differently to the love languages, I have that knowledge as a resource and as a helpful reminder that we are all different and we all respond differently to affection, friendship, and emotional stimulus.
I hope that you will benefit as much as I have from The 5 Love Languages and would love to get your feedback.
