When your loved ones are not feeling appreciated, it might be because you are not expressing your love for them in their preferred “love language.” Learning about love languages can give you and your family the words to ask for what you need to feel connected and strong in your relationships.
This activity is based on Gary Chapman’s book, The Five Love Languages, where he shares five general ways in which we all give and receive love.
Relationships—whether they’re between friends, a romantic couple, a parent and child, or with your coach—are strengthened when both parties are getting what they need. Being able to talk about love languages builds a good foundation to every relationship.
