Q&A: Making Other People Happy

Q: I seem happiest when other people are happy. Is there a sixth love language to reflect this?

Gary: I would say that by nature most of us feel good when we make other people happy. The question is, what do you do to make other people feel happy? Chances are, it’s speaking their love language. For example, if Receiving Gifts is their language and you give them a gift, they feel a positive emotion. I would say there’s a good chance you are speaking four or five different languages on a regular basis. The general idea of doing for others, no matter what the language, is a way of making other people happy. This is certainly a good pursuit, so continue to do so.
