One of the most prolific and life-changing books I’ve ever read is “The Five Love Languages” by Dr. Gary Chapman. In fact, once I read it myself, I started buying extra copies and gifting them to friends and family, attempting to sow the seed of happier relationships. Ask yourself the following questions: Do I want to love better? Do I want to feel more loved? If you answered yes, then you should read this book.
Dr. Chapman states the obvious – we give love and receive love differently from one another. Identifying and understanding our own “love language” and the “love language” of those close to us is the key to fulfilling relationships. As a marriage and family therapist, Dr. Chapman observed repeatedly that couples often suffered not from not loving their spouse, but a continued lack of “feeling loved” by their spouse. Chapman isolated the five ways of expressing love: Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch, Acts of Service, Quality Time, and Receiving Gifts.
