Quality Time: ABC Of Knowing True Love Part 17

  • Q - Quality

    Time 

Quality Time is one of the five love languages as documented by Gary Chapman.


     
    There will never be true love without quality time spend together.
     
    No other thing has the capacity to replace quality time in a relationship or marriage Click to Tweet 


     
    Quality time is defined as 

“Time spent in giving another person one's undivided attention in order to strengthen a relationship"
     
    Note the words “undivided attention!”


     
    The attention has to be focused on each other.


     
    Every other thing, issues, persons take the back stage and you focus only on the person you are spending time with.


     
    That is when you can say that the time you have spent is a quality time. 


     
    A central aspect or area of quality time is togetherness. 


     
    Here are a few indicators to really tell you that quality time is being spent.


     
    1. Eye Contact 


     
    There must be eye contact.


     
    Men have the capacity to say they are listening to you while they are listening to news on TV, checking their e-mails on their phones, all at the same time.
     
    

Well, this is not quality time!
     
    

Quality time entails your total attention, with eye-to-eye contact. 


     
    2. Empathic Listening
     
    Quality time requires empathic listening which is putting yourself in shoes of the talker to really feel what he or she is feeling.
     
    

It entails deliberate and focused attention so that the person talking can be understood.
     
    

3. No Interruptions


     
    Refuse the urge to interrupt. 


     
    Incessant interruptions takes the “quality” out of quality time. 



    Interruptions can end up turning quality time to quarreling time. Click to Tweet 


     
    4. Offer sympathy, Not a Lecture 


     
    While giving quality time, refuse the urge to advise, lecture, preach or sermonize. 


     
    Most times, especially in women, they are just looking to see if you understand them.


     
    They don’t even want instant solutions, they just want an understanding person.
     
    

Are you an understanding fiance or husband?
     
    

Try and be understanding and you will enjoy her more.
     
    

I am going to stop here this morning


     
    I pray that God will grant more understanding.

    PRAYER FOR THE DAY

    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
    "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken."  (Ecc 4:9-12, KJV)
