Express Love – The Love Language
Love encompasses a broad range of positive and sometimes emotional states, from the deepest personal ideal, the highest personal passion, to the easiest physical pleasure. All of these states are related to how love manifests itself in our lives. It is the state of harmony between two people that defines the nature of their relationship. We can all love someone and be at peace with our own inner being. However, sometimes we fail to connect our best feelings to our partners and there are times when we take our partner for granted and treat them as if they were simply an extension of ourselves.
Sometimes this lack of connection between lovers can manifest itself in a relationship where one person feels unloved, uncared for, and rejected by the other person. When this happens it may leave both people feeling hurt and angry. To avoid falling into this trap, it is important to learn to build intimacy within a relationship rather than becoming dependent on the other person in order to feel love for them. This does not mean that we give up our individual personalities or turn into someone else in order to be loving to another person. Rather, it means that we become more comfortable and contented with who we are as an individual, without having to sacrifice our other relationships.
In order to build a healthy relationship it is crucial to remember that love is the awareness of positive emotions when another person feel loved and supported, instead of focusing so much on negative feelings. The focus needs to be on building a positive relationship and surrounding ourselves with supportive people, colleagues, and peers. When this focus is put upon our romantic relationships we can ensure that true intimacy blossoms.
Coming home to a house that feels like a ghost town can have devastating effects on anyone, especially if emotions are involved. People are often confused about how to deal with an ending of a romantic relationship. They may try to stay in the relationship out of fear, but this rarely resolves anything. People need to take a look at their life and ask themselves what caused the relationship to end, if it was a problem that can be resolved. If the relationship ended because someone became abusive, it is important to address that with the appropriate authorities, such as the police.
If your intimate relationship ends, it is important to know how to move on. Often times one person in the relationship brings shame and guilt onto themselves because they feel that they have disappointed the other person, which impacts their own sense of self worth. By moving on, these individuals can free their minds from these negative feelings, which helps them grow into new intimacy. By opening up with one another and revealing how one has affected the other, they are learning to love and accept one another again.
Love is not about giving, it is about receiving. Being in a committed relationship where you are sharing your deepest thoughts, dreams, and passions can be a powerful expression of love, even if it doesn’t involve romantic involvement. As a couple, you can let off steam by telling intimate friends about the great experience you are having, rather than focusing on the problems in your relationship. You can also express love to family members and close friends by sharing fond memories, instead of analyzing the reasons for your lack of attention or involvement.
