Gary Chapman is well known as “Mr. Love Languages”. His New York Times bestselling book, The Five Love Languages, has become a classic in the field of relationships. For a healthy relationship, it is essential that you convey love and appreciation to the other person. Recently, Dr. Chapman has embraced a second necessary ingredient for healthy relationships: dealing with inevitable offenses through apology and forgiveness. In 2006, Gary Chapman and I released The Five Languages of Apology, which illuminates the steps for removing barriers in any relationship. We believe that The Five Love Languages and The Five Languages of Apology fit together like a hand in a glove. Both concepts embody ‘vital statistics’ for making relationships work. Today, most engaged couples know that they need to learn each others’ love languages. Yet they will not be fully equipped for their journey without the matching insight: their languages of apology. Whether in love relationships, friendships, or the workplace, love languages and apology languages are practical relationship tools for cementing your relationships.
In this blog, you’ll find posts about these two essentials: love (or, more correctly, ‘appreciation’ in the workplace) and healing offenses.
