“You’re doing a great job!” and “I like the way you think about what you say before you speak, it shows such compassion towards others,” are words of affirmation. Telling someone exactly how you positively feel about them can be one of the most loving acts. For people whose love language is Words of Affirmation, there is no greater or easier way to fill their love tank than using words.
It doesn’t always have to be verbal either. Writing a compliment on a sticky note and putting it on the bathroom mirror for your spouse to see first thing in the morning will give them such a lift. That being said, learning the language of Words of Affirmations might come with different dialects. Perhaps your partner doesn’t like to read and would prefer to hear the words of praise. Or, maybe they get embarrassed easily so a thoughtful card left on their pillow would be the way to go.
