The Five Love Languages We Should Know

December 23, 2016

The first time I heard about these 5 love languages was during my 1st year in Czech, it was during a medical talk with Dr. Harlina (she just got promoted to a title of Professor!) :D I don't remember why she mentioned that in the talk but to know that there are different ways to approach people is an interesting fact we should explore.

Different people, different lifestyle, different preferences, different needs - these make us unique.

'The Five Love Languages' is actually a book (I haven't read though). Based on the author, Gary Chapman, the love languages are about ways to experience and express our love.

  1. Words of Affirmation
  2. Acts of Service
  3. Receiving Gifts
  4. Quality Time
  5. Physical Touch

5 years ago, my interpretation of love was more on my parents, my siblings and my friends. Maybe now I need to think about love towards different gender. I am glad I didn't explore much about this topic during that time. I was so immature and struggles to study abroad was more important to think, for me.

Well, at least I managed to apply these love languages on my family and friends. One of the best thing I learned during my early days in Czech. To my friends, I may not know exactly your love languages but please know that I am still trying :)

Quality Time.
For me, personally, the biggest point for myself is this.

To walk home from school with a good friend is something I always love to do, even though I have a bike. Maryam, if you are reading this, please know that I really love to walk with you after school <3 And to my hiking mates (these people keep changing haha), thank you so much for lending your ears to hear my stories, complaints, sharing throughout the hiking trip. Can you imagine how much we can know our friends when walking at least half a day in the forest without any disturbances?

If you prefer Malay language to understand about this, I share here a post I found while scrolling my FB news feed. The inspiration to this blog post.

If you watch The Return of Superman (TROS), a Korean variety show, seriously you can find all these features via interactions between parents-parents, between parents-children, between child-child. My favourite babies are obviously the triplets, to move on after the episode when Song Il Kook decided to withdraw his family from the show was a hard thing to do. :p

Find your love languages - you may have more than 1 actually.
Explore them as well on people you love as well or simply ask them, I guess? :)

Salam Jumaah, everyone.
May you have a blessed day. <3
