Love takes work. And not hard, exhausting, overwhelming work (at least not always) but soft work, the work that you do every day in a lot of moments, again and again. The love that nurtures, the love that cares, the love that doesn't go without saying.

Words of affirmation are one of the five love languages that are about saying things that make your loved one feel special. The start of any relationship is quite effortless in this regard. We talk a lot, express a lot, and give a lot of time, but naturally, we blend in with the other parts of our lives too because we have to.

The love that started needs to be nurtured still. It can't keep running on the effort you put in only at the start or during a limited period of time. Love is like a plant. It needs regular tending, with softness. Not a lot of it, but it has to be consistent. So today, let's learn how we can tend to our significant other and nourish the love we share with them with words of affirmation examples.
