    Default Love Languages & Self Care

    Do you employ your love languages when practicing self care?

    (Words of affirmation, physical touch - maybe giving yourself a foot massage?, gifts, acts of service - maybe doing something unpleasant that you can then enjoy the benefit of?, quality time)

    Not consciously, but I suppose I do a bit now that you mention it. If self care can be unconscious.

    I think it could... It could be what you reach for to make yourself feel better whether you consciously think about it or not...

    Good question.

    I usually test as "words of affirmation" being my highest, but while I do love it from other people, I don't think it really helps me in the long-run. I don't really ever give myself words of affirmation because I never believe it coming from me, that's why I appreciate it from others.

    I like physical touch a lot too, and I definitely self-pleasure a lot when I'm not feeling great.

    I've noticed that I buy myself shit as "self-care." Mainly in the form of good food. So that's probably most effective of the five for me.

    The other two are really irrelevant to me, as far as I know.
    tried to make it one less round, but i'm tapping out now

    I tend to neglect myself, but yeah. If I do acts of service that benefit me, I do feel better now that you mention it. Its in part with my coping mechanisms too.
    The beginning of the end is beginning.

    I am words of affirmation as well, and agree with all your points. i don't find it helps me in the long run for the same reasons.

    When i am under great stress physical touch makes me bristle. ( my second love language)

    buying myself stuff, ( random antiques , crystals, books) lighting candles and listening to music act as self care for me. The more eccentric the moment the better i feel.
    blow a kiss to the universe and it is certain to wink at you in return.
