In the season of LOVE, we thought it was fitting to discover or rediscover what our love languages were as a team. Knowing your love language not only helps identify what you need and how you respond in your personal relationships but it can also help you understand what you need and want from the people closest to you, whether that be coworkers, parents, or friends.
With a little help from The 5Love Languages® quiz, you can learn to identify the root ofyour conflicts, give and receivelove in more meaningful ways, and grow closer than ever.Your Love Language profile will explainyour primarylove language, what it means, and how you can use it to connect to others. We have included the link so that you too can find out yours!
Alyssa: Acts of Service
As I have gotten older, I have realized that the best way I feel appreciated by my significant other, coworkers, or friends is when they see that I am struggling or need relief and help to take the load off by doing simple tasks or make time to listen to me. The most precious gift someone can give you is time. I tied on words of affirmation and quality time, which are also very important to my well being. I like to feel seen and prioritized by the people I love!
Interestingly, as a Scorpio whose love language is acts of service, I connected a lot with this graphic.
Crystal: Acts of Service
When someone takes the time to help me do something or does something for me so I don't have to, it makes me feel like I am loved and appreciated. I don't need gifts. I just don't want to do my laundry! Time to get a housekeeper.
I'm a Taurus, so this also felt applicable.
David: Physical Touch
I guess I'm a touchy feely kind of person. Which, is kind of funny because if I don't know you, I really don't want to touch you! I never got the whole shaking hands thing as a kid. It seems strange to touch someone that you didn't know. However, I can cuddle all evening watching a movie and if I know you, I will always want a hug. I miss hugs...
Capricorn here! The silent time together is actually my jam, though I think that it drives Michelle nuts. Haha!
Kate: Acts of Service
People can say whatever they want, It takes time, energy and effort to actually do things. That is why, it is very important for me (and I feel loved) when people show their actions, not just words. Especially, if their actions are meaningful and important for me, but might not be very convenient for them. Same works vice versa.
I love trying new experiences and places with my hubby!
