Love, Love, Love

It's nearly Valentines Day! I thought it would be appropriate to talk about love languages and my top three love languages.

So what are Love Languages? For a long time, I never knew what the heck that meant whenever people would talk about it. Now, I know that there are five main types of Love Languages: receiving gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, and physical touch and that there are ways that we like to receive love and give it.

We all like to receive love through these 5 types of Love Languages but we all have 3 specific ways that we receive love the best. For me, I receive love best through quality time, words of affirmation and physical touch. The most important thing to know about Love Languages is that everyone receives love differently and it is important to learn peoples Love Languages and the way they receive love. For example, if you are married or frankly with any relationship or friendship, you may love to show that person that you love them through gifts but they may receive love better through quality time rather than gifts. A lot of our friendships and relationships may be struggling because we aren't specifically loving those people the way they best receive love, receiving love in any of the 5 love languages is still nice and they are all an act of love but we aren't hitting those specific areas that that person needs to receive love in.

In the first chapter of The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman, he explains that we all have a love tank that needs to be filled. He says that when he is receiving love in his top 3 Love Languages it's like his "love tank" is being filled up and when he is receiving love in another way, he still is receiving that love but it isn't as filling as his top 3 would be. When we are loving people the way they best receive love and when someone is loving us in the best way we receive it, our love tank is being filled up. Sounds kind of cheesy but is so true! So this Valentines Day try learning and showing love to that special someone or even your friends in the way they best receive it.

Do you know what your top 3 ways of receiving love are? Let's discuss it down below :)
