The 5 Love Languages
If you are only going to read one book of all the books I’ve got on here… this is the ONE!
Have you ever wondered why someone you love dearly never seems to get the message? Or why no matter how hard you try they still feel under appreciated?
My best guess is that you are probably speaking different love languages. In this book Gary Chapman goes through 5 love languages; words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, quality time and physical touch. Everyone has a primary love language, one that they respond to more than the others and it tends to also be the one that they speak more fluently than the others. If your primary love language is physical touch and your partner’s is acts of service but you have not learned how to speak acts of service then you could be experiencing distance and lack of emotional connection in your relationship.
This book is one of the easiest and most interesting books I have ever read. Gary Chapman’s writing style is very relaxed, almost conversational. The Five Love Languages has given me insight into how to better communicate with my family and friends.
