February Writing Challenge: Day Thirteen
Hello there! Today is day thirteen in my writing challenge which asks me to talk about my love language, my partner’s love language, and how that works together. This is understandable because it’s the day before Valentine’s Day; however, I do not have a partner so I can’t really fulfill what this post asks me to do. Instead, I’m going to list the love languages that I believe I relate to the most and why. Feel free to leave a comment below describing your love language (keep it PG or your comment won’t be approved).
According to a Google search there are five love languages:
- Words of affirmation
- Acts of Service
- Quality time
- Physical touch
I believe that I relate most to words of affirmation, acts of service and quality time. I truly think that all five of them are important; however, I’m an extremely busy person and haven’t had a lot of time to physically be present in a relationship. My last relationship taught me that there is no way I can be in a relationship with someone who has a disgusting amount of free time due to lack of responsibilities when I’m the exact opposite. So, in situations like that I feel it’s important to continuously build your partner up and let them know that you appreciate them via words. When there is time to be had, spend it the right way. I don’t have a tremendous amount of free time so when I do have it, I need to make sure it’s going to the people I care about the most so they never forget that I’m here and I love them. And then acts of service I think are nice. It’s not going out and breaking the bank by buying them things you can’t afford but it is making your partner a meal instead of going out, or making them a cheap craft, or even bringing them coffee at work unexpectedly. Those things, for me, go a long way.
