Love is an insatiable human need. When we give a gift we strive to make it the “perfect” gift, so why not strive for the same thing when we give love? Different types of relationships require us to love differently. There is romantic, familial, friendly, and self-love to consider. Not everyone needs to be loved the same way. When we know what love languages to speak we are better able to communicate our love to others and receive their love in return. The book “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman is excellent in determining love languages. The sooner we learn to communicate with one another in the right language the stronger our love connections will be.
Love involves the simple acts of giving and receiving but can be improved if we know which gift to give. When given honestly there are no strings or expectations attached to the most important emotion of them all. Joyfully give love from your heart, and graciously accept it when it’s returned. The more love you put into the world the more you open your heart on the receiving end. The feeling of love is intoxicating, and is as necessary as the air we breathe. Express your feelings freely, honestly, and as often as you can. There’s no such thing as too much love, so be generous with the heartfelt emotion you put into the world. Spread all kinds of love.
