Do you know your love language? The reason that many women have an issue with giving love and receiving love is because they aren’t aware of their own love language and the love language of others. Once you find out what your love language is then it will better help you understand how to give love and how to receive love.
I know that there may have been points in your life where you have been irritated by family, friends, or a significant other because they weren’t showing you love the way you expected it. I have been in your shoes before.
For a long time I was very irritated with my family and friends because they didn’t show me love the way that I expected to receive it. After years of being irritated by others I finally figured out my love language. My love language is quality time and affection.
