If your wife’s love language is words of affirmation, then I can help. It is very easy to fall into a routine with your family where you begin to feel like you aren’t appreciated. It is also very easy for you as a husband to boost your wife’s self esteem and make her feel appreciated by saying just a few words. Here are 5 things to say to make your wife feel more appreciated.
tell her she’s beautiful
Even if she looks terrible and maybe even especially on the days she looks terrible. As a husband know that it isn’t always possible to spend an hour primping with kids running around. So tell her she looks beautiful on occasion. It’ll make her feel happy that you still think so.
tell her she’s a good mother
I never would have believed you if you told me 5 years ago that this is the best compliment I could ever receive from my spouse, but it is. Mothers put incredible pressure on themselves to be the perfect mom. Hearing from you that you see her as a mother and that you recognize how hard she tries will feel amazing.
tell her you love her
Every single day. Getting into a busy routine sometimes means forgetting to slow down and tell your significant other that you love them, but try your hardest not to let that happen. We all need to be reminded that were loved.
tell her the house looks nice
If she’s a stay at home mom, your wife has most likely spent the whole day combatting against toddlers and babies trying to keep the house picked up. If she’s a working mom, she’s spent the day working and now has to come home to wrangle up the kids for the nightly routine while cleaning up the house. It is literally impossible to simultaneously keep every toy where it belongs, empty the dishwasher without interruptions, or fold laundry without the folded pile being knocked over at least once. Recognize that she’s done these things and she will feel appreciated.
make her feel appreciated by telling her you appreciate her
It is that easy. Tell her you appreciate everything she does for you and the kids. There is almost nothing as satisfying as hearing that everything you do is being recognized by the person who means the most to you.
