The first, but not the only measure, of how much contentment we would feel in our lives would be the measure of how loved we feel we are. It is the very basic yet important need of a human, much more a teen. If you happen to be a one who doesn’t feel loved now, you haven’t killed yourself because you have hope that tomorrow you would find love. Imagine if you knew that in your future you would have no one to love you, wouldn’t you feel like dying already?
The love languages are only there to guide us and help us see that there in most likelihood is someone out there to loves you but can’t express it the way we want them to. BUT they are also there to help us improve our love. Love can grow and ours should too. Remember that! If our love today remains the same for the next few years than our future spouses are doomed, really they are!
Practice loving, give love. And not only to those who love you but even to those who hate you. A guy named Matthew ones wrote,
“If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? [Everyone does that]. And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?” 1
