The 5 Love Languages – What is your language of love?
I am finally reading the book “The 5 Love Languages” by Dr. Gary Chapman. I had heard about this book but I’ve never had a chance because I have a stack of books that I want to read and never make time to read them. But I drive quite a bit and I got smarter and got the Kindle version with Audible whisper sync so I can read the book between the clients on my iPhone and the Bluetooth in my car starts picks up where I left off and starts playing the audio version. It’s amazing. Thank you Amazon for making my life so much easier.
Dr. Chapman lists five love languages, #1 words of affirmation for those who need to hear words to feel the love, #2 quality time for those who need to spend time together with full attention to feel the love, #3 receiving gifts for those who need to receive thoughtful gifts to feel the love, #4 acts of service for those who need things done for them such as vacuuming or taking out the trash to feel the love, and #5, and most important in my opinion, physical touch for those who need to be touched to feel the love.
Guess what my primary love language is. Physical touch. Although I’m very picky about who touches me, I need be touched to feel that I’m loved. Or as Dr. Chapman puts, it fills my emotional love tank. I guess as a Massage Therapist I’ve been doing “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” In my opinion Massage Therapist needs massage the most so receiving a good massage is very important to me too.
Then I became curious, is physical touch the primary love language for all the massage therapists? What about you, the viewers of this video? If you are watching this video, thank you very much by the way, I’m assuming that you are somewhat interested in massage. What is your primary love language? If you don’t know what the heck I’m talking about you can take the online assessment on his website: http://www.5lovelanguages.com/profile.
I highly highly highly recommend this book if you haven’t read already. I believe this is one of the books that will make the world a happier place.
