Gary Chapman author of The Five Love Languages series says that there are five ways that people communicate their love to each other.
- Physical touch
- Words of affirmation
- Quality time
- Acts of service
Knowing how the special people in your life need to feel emotionally connected to you is important. Discuss these different love languages and communicate honestly with your partner how you need to be loved. Once this need is acknowledged and you are working to communicate openly, your relationship will build trust and not the walls that grow to keep your heart protected.
Don't wait until you are in crisis and believe the love is completely gone. Seek professional help when needed or when you don't know how to rebuild that special relationship.
