The five languages of Love by Gary Chapman
I completed this book last month and I can say that this book is very useful. Gary Chapman wrote the 5 languages of love for married couples (Which I haven’t read yet) and it was very successful. Many single people were interested in knowing more about the different love languages when dealing with their fiancées, family, friends or colleagues at work. Chapman decided to write a book that is dedicated to singles and also suitable for couples.
I found this book useful because it mentions that people have different love languages that they speak and that we should try to learn other people’s languages to establish or improve our relationships with others. We all love differently and we all have different approaches to love. They key of this book is that not all of us feel loved the same way, some feel loved by words, some by actions, some by gifts etc… If we learn to understand the love language of the person that we are dealing with then we will be able to communicate wisely instead of being selfish and only thinking about what makes us feel loved. In any relationship either its friendship, family or marriage both parties should make an effort in adapting and trying to speak the language of the other person.
What is mentioned in this book makes sense because we all have different personalities and we all identify love differently, however its an eye opening and a reminder that we are all different even if we have many similarities. Also, love is not enough to remain a constant successful relationship we shall learn the languages of others and respect them.
