This week’s blog is on friendship or relationships. When I sat down and thought about what I could for the blog the first thing that came to my mind was a book. I am not big on reading non-fiction but I have found this book very useful in my marriage but also in my other relationships. The book is “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman. It is written more focused on marriage relationships but I think a lot of the concepts in the book can be related to other relationships as well.
It basically talks about how each one of us feels loved in different ways. The book narrows these into five things – words of affirmation, quality time, receiving gifts, acts of service and physical touch.
I found it very helpful to learn how I feel loved and also to learn about the other ways so that I could better love others – my wife, my family and my friends.
If you are hanging out at Fit 4 Life there is a copy of the book in the book rack, feel free to take some time out to have a read of it.
