Cherish is the easy part. When you cherish something, it means that you value and care about it. It is important to you. However, you may not express it. That’s where nourish comes in.
Nourish is an action term that looks at what I actually do. It involves going beyond the attitude to action. The attitude of cherishing and the activity of nourishing are two of the key dimensions of love. A healthy loving relationship needs both. However, most people find it easier to cherish than to nourish. It’s easier to feel love than it is to effectively and creatively express love.
