And our final love language..physical touch. The other day I was having the worst day..I text my husband and said "I need you to come home and hold me"..his reply.."I'm on my way"...music to my ears!
I knew he was on his way home.. so that was a comfort already..but what I want you to know here is that I asked for what I needed..to many times my friends share with me they are to afraid to ask for what they need when it comes to physical touch..don't be..its the one love language guys really want to understand..even though they instantly think yes! we need to teach them by telling them "I want to be held"...."I' d like to hold hands"..."I only need a foot rub"..our job is to be kind and gentle here.. men can get the feeling of rejecting very easily ..so be sweet and explain what it is you really are wanting..it tends to go better and if something comes of it well.....hey.
The love language of physical touch is a God given gift! Society has made it rude and crass...but it wasn't meant to be that way..it is made to express love to one another equally! Giving and receiving not taking and making....it is to be gentle, kind, patient.. thinking of the other above self...beautiful..I hope you enjoy this language..it is wonderful...it is love...The song of Solomon is the best example of physical touch that you can read! It is so romantic and passionate and its in the Bible ladies! It's theme is the warm human emotion of love and devotion.."Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine"...(chapter1 verse 1) "My beloved speaks and says to me Rise up, my love, my fair one and come away"...(ch2 v 10) doesn't it sound so loving and passionate at the same time?
Take the time... use your words...clear your mind and devote yourself to this love language..be honest and real..you don't have to have a size 2 body to enjoy this language...you don't have to conform to what the world tells you about this language.. you don't have to do things that are uncomfortable to express yourself because its an equal act..you can discover yourself in this language and actually love it...
