“Love the giver more than the gift.”
-Brigham Young, founder of the Latter Day Saints
Years ago, I read The Five Love Languages to enhance my relationship with my wife Wendy. I still recommend this book to coaching clients who wish a better understanding of their partners. The gist is that there are different ways to show love. We almost always choose to show love in the way we like to receive it.
By tuning into the offerings of others, we can embrace their gifts in the way they are intended, instead of missing the message because we are not speaking the same love language.
How could you fully love the givers in your life by embracing every gift they have to offer, in the love language that fits them?
