#RoommateDiaries: Giving love to the point it's truly received by the person you're giving it to all comes down to love languages.
Relationships are all about giving your partner what they need and vice versa. Doing the things for your partner that make YOU happy/feel loved won't always have the same effect on them. Granted they'll be grateful, but if it's not their love language you're speaking to them as well, then the love will only go so far.
Think about learning a new language, you'll make some mistakes, you'll mispronounce some words, but as long as you keep at it, you're better at communicating with someone who otherwise doesn't speak or understand your own language.
Sometimes we make the mistake of knowing how we as individuals need to be loved, to the point where we're loving our lovers in that way, and not in the way THEY need to be loved.
If you haven't done this in your relationships already, I challenge you to really think about YOUR love language, and try to understand your partner's love language. Have a conversation about it, ask yourself if they're speaking your love language in the way that they're showing love to you, and if you're doing the same for them. Happy loving !! Xx
