Sometimes we expect more from others, because we would be willing to do that much for them. – Unknown
A couple weeks ago my assignment was to think of 30 ways that my partner could love me. This seems like a simple task right? Well, I guess sometimes I have the habit of perceiving things to be more difficult than they actually are. Debbie and I worked on this assignment together to get it completed and guess what, I found it to be incredibly enlightening!
We discovered that I feel loved the most when people do thoughtful and nice things for me. Love for me isn’t receiving a really expensive gift, instead it is the kind and generous acts completed by those around me. In many of my personal relationships I have felt disappointed and unloved at times. I love my friends deeply and with sincere commitment. I show my love by completing small acts of kindness that may make their day a little bit easier, more fun, less lonely…
What I never realized was that not everyone shows their love towards others the same way nor do they necessarily feel love the same way that I do. Establishing a satisfying relationship requires us to determine how we feel love and what the people we love need to feel our love for them.
Every day is a little brighter than the day before.
