The Role of Love Languages in a Relationship

The five love languages stand for how you give and receive love. While this is not something many people think about, it does affect how you and your partner relate. If you have never taken the test to figure out what your love language is, then you might want to do so now. Here are some of the roles love languages play in a relationship. They Promote Selflessness When it comes to a relationship, you realize that everything is not about you. You have to consider your partner and their needs. In taking the time to learn what your partner’s needs are, you get to a point where you can love them like they need to be loved. The act itself forces you to think about someone else and what makes them feel seen. It helps you give more of yourself to make someone other than yourself happy. It Makes You Empathetic Rarely will you find yourself with a partner with a similar love language. As such, you need to understand how your person feels and receives love. You can only do this by practicing empathy, which is a quality that will serve you in most areas of your life. It Improves Your Communication If you and your partner have different love languages, then you have to learn how to love each other differently. For instance, words of affirmations are good but your partner will appreciate more if you spend time with them if their love language is quality time. The only way to know what your partner prefers is to talk to them. Find out what their love language is and vice versa. They will need you both to be open and talk to each other without judgment.  It might take a while but you will be better partners in the long run. Fosters Contentment in a Relationship One of the main reasons couples fight or breakup is feeling discontented in a relationship. If you or your partner feel like needs are not being met, then there is a chance you will want to walk out. By loving on someone or being loved on correctly, you feel seen and are content in the relationship. Learning one’s love language gets you there and helps you feel secure in a relationship. Improves Your Self-Awareness Going into a relationship without knowing who you are as a person can sabotage you. The one place to start is to know what your love language is and be able to speak up when you feel like a need is being ignored. While there are so many other areas you have to work on, starting out with your love language will help. It is a step in the right direction when it comes to self-awareness. What Are the Love Languages? Once you understand the benefits of love languages, it will also help if you know what they are. These are the five love languages: The one thing you need to remember is that, while these love languages are important, they are not everything. It takes more than knowing your partner’s love language to make a relationship work.  Being intentional about knowing who your partner is and how you two can grow together is what makes a great relationship.
