Love is action, not merely a feeling. When you love someone, you should have a natural desire to do things to please them. This action can range from saying nice things, to acts of service, gifts, spending quality time with them, and physical touch. To read more about these “love languages”, visit www.5lovelanguages.com. The action will fuel and feed your love and your relationship, so that it does not starve and die. Sometimes the simplest things will speak volumes to your partner about your feelings for them.
Additionally, sometimes it is not what you say, but how you say it. Your partner may not even pay attention to your words, but they will definitely pay attention to the tone of your voice, your body language, your expression, etc. Communication is extremely important in any relationship; just remember that it’s not only your words that are communicating.
To get the love you want, practice giving the love you want to receive in return. A little kindness goes a long way. You may have heard the saying that you attract more flies with honey than with vinegar. Changing your relationship and making it the relationship you want, starts with you. Nagging rarely ever yields the desired results; and if it does, it was for the wrong reasons. Practice kindness, patience, forgiveness, and acts of love (action). You might just be surprised with the results!
