Chapter 4: Love Language #1: Words of Affirmation
“Many couples have never learned the tremendous power of verbally affirming each other.”
Most of us resort to anger, passive aggression, and unkind words when our partner does something we do not like. However, if words of affirmation are your partner’s primary love language, focusing on the things they do that you do like will motivate them most effectively. Affirming them frequently will remind them that you love them, and they will be more inclined to reciprocate and do the things you want them to do.
