Welcome back and Happy #therapeuticthursday If you missed the first Love Language, scroll back, but today we’re moving onto number 2 of the 5 Love Languages. The information is shared from the classic book The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman. You MUST do yourself (and your partner) a favor and pick up a copy on @amazon
For the couples that I work with, understanding how each partner feels loved in the relationship is crucial. Consider taking this quiz and having your partner take this quiz to better understand how you can both be more successful at meeting each other’s needs in the relationship.
The first Love Language I focused on was called Acts of Service and today it is: Quality Time.
In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, "I love you," like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there – with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Quality Time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities. Is this your love language? If so, start communicating that this is vitally important in your sense of feeling loved. The unfortunate part of not being aware of your needs is that you are always trying to fulfill that need in some way, so if your partner is NOT the one meeting that need... I would be cautious that someone else doesn’t start fulfilling it for you.
