Love Languages:

To ignore the different ways a person receives love and to show them love the way we receive love may miss the mark and lead to relationship damage.  It would be like saying ‘I love you’ in German to a person who speaks only French.  Here are some clips about the 5 love languages:

To discovery your love language/s visit the Gary Chapman 5 love languages website.  Gary Chapman has written a series of books some of which have been best-sellers on the topic of the 5 love languages.  Also if you own an iPhone you might like to go to the App store and look for the app called "5 Love Languages (Grooters Productions)."  

Clinical Social Worker, researcher, and author Brene Brown says this about love:

“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.

Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.

Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.”
