Great, now we are familiar with –
What is love?
Also, what is a language?
Undoubtedly, communication is the most fundamental skill. But it is also the most challenging. The key to doing it effectively is to decide which means of communication you should ideally use.
When it comes to love, do we really know, how to express our love? Have you been struggling to express naturally when it comes to love? The answers to these questions are yes. Yes, we all do. We use trial and error in an attempt to develop a worthwhile bond. The relationship slips by unnoticed as we lament, regret and apologize leaving behind a trail of what-ifs. But wait, pointless fretting about this is not going to help.
Life just goes on. Ups and downs are part and parcel of life. There is no need to worry so much. Five shades of love can come handy to avoid landing in the similar situation. Absolutely the eternal way to love and be loved. I am talking about and is sharing 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman.

Words mean a lot to these people. Words of appreciation, encouraging words and compliments to name a few do wonders.

Now, let’s go- back- to – basics of love. Love is always about someone else. Hence, it becomes pertinent that if I wish someone to feel the love I am trying to bestow, I must confer it in his or her primary love language.
Well, it is worth mentioning that different people have different primary love language. Most importantly, everyone tends to exhibit one dominant love language. Usually, we show and expect love in our own primary love language. Really?
Thank you so much for reading! Hoping that things would take off blissfully. My primary love language is – Acts of Service ☺! What’s yours? Share it with me to spread your love ♥. You can find it here http://www.5lovelanguages.com/.
Congrats! You’re the owner of a new time machine. The catch? It comes in two models, each traveling one way only: the past OR the future. Which do you choose, and why?
I will not think twice and will definitely prefer ‘The catch’ traveling in the past to take a trip down memory lane. Actually, in this fast paced, multitasking world, where is the time to sit back to reflect and recollect. Where is the time to celebrate the glory of those good old days? Being an opportunist, I would happily own ‘The catch’. I could not ask for more, yeah, It’s one way only.
This rewinding of the clock will reflect my journey of life. I will recall: who inspired me during trials and tribulations? Who infused love and confidence in me? Further, it may manifest in my present as well, as they say, smart people learn from their own mistakes.
I am apprehensive about exploring the future as I do not yearn for what it holds for me. May be it will mess up my present too. I would rather believe in having a vision about the future.
Come and join my smooth and bumpy ride, if you wish to know more about me. Just remember to catch ‘The catch’.
