I find the idea of love languages to be powerful in that it opens your mind to how different people respond to different things. If you like words of affirmation, you might think words of affirmation impact others the same way. It’s only when you learn “all” the love languages that you realize that people respond differently. It can be very eye opening and powerful.
Being generous is similar. If you think donating money to a charity is the only way to be generous, it’s hard to be generous if you don’t have space in your budget for it.

The book, published in 1992, is out of print. But Amazon listed 17 copies for sale: 15 used from $35.54, and 2 new from $1,730,045.91 (+$3.99 shipping).” 👀 huh???
And our last one for today, a look inside credit repair companies:
