Have you ever felt like your expressions of love get lost in translation? Do you ever feel like you’re working overtime to make sure people in your life feel your love, but you’re never quite sure it truly lands? Have you ever been baffled after going above and beyond to show your love to someone but didn’t get any reciprocation whatsoever? I hear this issue crop up over and over again among my clients: parents who feel like their kids don’t appreciate their caregiving, young adults who claim to be in loving relationships but don’t feel deeply connected, kids who are told they are loved a bazillion times a day but still question their parents’ affection… If any of this resonates with you then this sugg-jess-tion is for you!
sugg-jess-tion #10: The 5 Love Languages Quiz
The 5 Love Languages by Dr. Gary Chapman has been a #1 New York Times bestseller for 8 years running. The premise is simple but hugely impactful: there are 5 primary love languages (ways in which we express and receive love), and when we aren’t clear about our own love language or the languages of those around us, bids for connection go missed and relationships suffer. In other words, knowing your own love language will better equip you to ask for what you need so you feel satisfied, and knowing others’ love languages will ensure that your expressions of love hit home.
