Words That Might Change A Life

Love Languages - Words of Affirmation | Spunkyrella

Life doesn’t happen overnight. It sure does happen, but the one we dreamed of, the one we made vision boards of, that one is taking hard work and dedication. And even then it might take a few years or decades to actually happen. Consider yourself lucky when the ones by your side believe in you fiercely…

 

 

I recently took the infamous love language test and as it turns out my love language is words of affirmation, I could have sworn it would be touch. It makes sense though, I jump back a little bit when new people go in for a hug right away. The ones who are close and dear to my heart can’t hug me often enough though, but it takes time to get there.

 

Words of affirmation.

 

That had to sit for a while. Yes, I took the test twice and it still said that my love language lies in words. Deep within, I am all about words. I love to write, to read, to talk and I am probably the last person around here who enjoys sending and receiving novel-like emails. I am all about that. I need to empower the dearest ones in my life, it’s almost a tick I cannot help myself with. I like to make gifts and of course I like to receive them, too. It’s not the same though.

 

The most meaningful incidents I can think of off the top of my head were heartfelt words and notes I received unexpectedly. That’s what gets me. It might be because I didn’t grow up with that. I never heard anything close to encouragement. I think within that lies my constant need to spread love too. Hearing words of affirmation still takes me by surprise and shots right to my core. It’s bittersweet.

 

Recently, within conversation, there was a subtle “I believe in you” thrown at me. It was sincere and heartfelt and totally unexpected. Words of affirmation right there and I teared up. I knew about the support, I felt it. To hear it, is a totally different level though. Try it out some time, it might move mountains…
