The Orange Peel Theory emphasizes that these acts of service are the ultimate love language. It’s not about expecting a reward or a gold star; it’s about doing something for someone just because. It’s about wanting to do things for someone to see them happy even if it inconveniences you. That’s the secret sauce to true, raw, unconditional love.
