How Do You Show Love?

Today’s Prompt: How do you show love?

I would say that there are 2 ways that I show love largely. I love to give friends and family little gifts. Nothing extravagant though. For example, I work for an FMCG company that owns a lot of different personal care and household brands. There is always a product that friends and family say they love so I make sure I take them that product whenever I visit them. It brings me great joy to see the look of delight on their faces. Sometimes the gift is not a physical item. I also enjoy taking people to places that they have never been before or sharing an experience that is new to them.

The other way I show love is by sharing my knowledge. I love to see people grow and if there are any tools I can give them to get them to the next wrung, then I will do so. I have learnt that I should only help when asked or else the seeds will fall on rocky ground. I will then get frustrated and the other person will still be merrily on their way. It’s not their fault though as they didn’t really want the help in the first place.

I am not a physical person as it’s not how I was brought up but I promised myself when my son was born that I would not raise him that way. We also didn’t say “I love you” very often in our family and I vowed that wouldn’t happen with my son as well. We say “I love you” to each other every day and especially when we are parting ways for the day and hugs are given freely when needed or requested.

That’s me for today. How do you show love?

  1. I agree with being being physical and saying someone that you love them because my family was also not big on affection… I am showing my love by being kind and polite, at least trying to be in most cases. With children I am playful and with adults I am polite and reliable.
