Miss Understood

The book 5 Love Languges shows how each person has “languages” (words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, quality time, physical touch) we use to both express love and measure our own fulfillment of the love we receive.  And we speak and care about each to different degrees.

The biggest take-away is the realization that “treat others as you would have them treat you” isn’t always great advice, since not everyone wants to be treated as you do.  It’s worthwhile then to notice your own biases (and languages) as well as your partner’s.
