After years of observations as a counselor, Gary Chapman’s book, “The 5 Love Languages” not only presents the concept there are primarily 5 love languages and how one or two usually dominate what we believe love should look like in actions, he also presents in Chapter 3 his observations about the whole “falling in love” process and then the choosing “to love” after the obsessive high of falling in love wears off.
Terrific learning tool, not only for the young eager to experience the “love rush”, but perhaps even more importantly now for those who have “fallen in love’ and without this knowledge, have suffered the loss of relationships, even repeatedly, that did not have to be lost.
My work, “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” complements Gary’s work because it goes one step further by saying that if we first discover who we truly are, plus learn to value … respect who we are and our unique blend of gifts, talents, and abilities, we will fall in love first with who we are. As a result, we will build in us the capacity to love unconditionally first ourselves, and as a result, other people … whether they are those we “fall in love” with or those in our lives, such as our birth families, whom we have to live and grow with … and who ultimately will shape our way of relating to other people, whether we are in love with them or not.
Both concepts reveal love does not have to end when the high of falling in love dissipates. On the contrary, the choice to love that comes after the obsessive beginning is what we all truly want … to be valued … respected … loved for who we really are. I know it is the truth for me.
If you have ever been confused about love, here are two simple, small books, that will empower you to experience not only the rush of falling in love, but also the joy from loving by choice.
Gary’s book has been around for years and the ebook version of mine will be available 9/11/2015 though soon you will be able to pre-order your copy.
Here’s another chance to choose love instead of loss. Choose the best practices for success with love!
