We all express and receive love in different ways. Some of us need hugs to feel loved, some of us must hear it, or some love to be showered in gifts. Learning your love language can be very helpful. It allows you to communicate better with those in your life and enables you to understand them better. People who have different love languages can still get along and be in fruitful, long-term, loving relationships, but knowing each other’s languages can help to ease communication and give you tools to love another and understand what you need.
