I’ve never considered myself very good at decorating… I especially got a complex when mom would come over and move things around after I’d arranged them…
For the longest time – I could never decorate or arrange anything without asking for someone else’s advice first. After all – mom is INCREDIBLY opinionated when it comes to decorating and if you don’t do it mom’s way – she’ll just hassle you until you “fix” it… (Love you Mom!)
So – for years – I thought that my decorating skills sucked. Then, about 5 years ago, I had an epiphany… I read the book, “The Five Love Languages“. That book outlines the 5 ways in which people like to give and receive love. Mom’s love language is “Acts of Service” whereas mine is “Words of Affirmation”. Well – that began to explain A LOT! Mom wasn’t redecorating because I sucked at it – she was doing it as a service to me! OMG – Epiphany!!
Suddenly it didn’t bother me when mom would come over and move things or redo something. She was doing it to be nice and show me she cares! Wow – that was a huge breakthrough in my head!
If you have a chance – everyone should read The Five Love Languages… It’s amazing at what you can find out about yourself and those around you!
