Relationships: The state of being connected
Ask yourself these questions:
- Are you struggling with connecting in your personal and/or professional relationships?
- Do you feel misunderstood by the people you interact with?
- Do you sometimes confuse the people you value with your communication style?
A great place to start and a powerful tool to use are the 5 love languages, as identified in “The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate” by Gary Chapman, Marriage Counselor and Pastor.
The 5 languages are:
- Words of Affirmation
- Acts of Service
- Physical Touch
- Quality Time
- Receiving Gifts
A unique challenge for young as well as mature adults is to process true feelings and emotions in order to express the authentic self.
We will discuss first of the five love languages- Words of Affirmation on August 14th at 10 am in a FREE WEBINAR
- An example of Words of Affirmation is using support words like “thinking of you” or “have a wonderful day”, “you can do this”. Leave a sticky note on their car, send a text or a quick phone call. These actions affirm how you feel. You must move thoughts to actions.
August 14th at 10 am. Let’s talk about the power of using
Words of Affirmation to affirm how we feel.
