Words of Affirmation is to express affirmation through spoken affection, praise, or appreciation.
For the next 5 Wednesdays, I am going to be encouraging you with ways to implement each of the 5 love languages. Today we begin with Words of affirmation.
We all long to know that we are loved. Hearing someone profess verbally the reasons why they love you encourages a loved one immensely. It gives life to those whose love language is words of affirmation. Too often, we get caught up in thinking about ourselves or the busyness around us that we may forget to stop and express the ways and reasons of why we love those around us. Take a moment today and think of ways you can say ‘I love you’ to whom you love.
When I ask my two children how they know their mom and dad loves them, their first response is “Because you tell me everyday.” This is both theirs and even my primary love language, except we have to be more useful with our words and find other words to express the love we have. We should be more expressive with our feelings. Spouses too. When we express these feelings, we create better communication and dig deeper into each others senses. It makes us feel better and want to be better and more loving to one another.
Would you agree?
I know there are several more ways to say “I love you,” what is something you will say today?
