Although I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day, it’s always a good time to talk about love. A different kind of love.
Unconditional love is a form of love that is given freely and without any expectations or conditions. It is often described as a love that is selfless, limitless, and unchanging and is characterized by a strong and deep affection towards a person regardless of their actions or behaviour. It is considered a pure form of love.
Very often we talk about love between parent and child as unconditional, but is it really? Don’t we have expectations from our children? The same with our partners. Very often we love people for something or because of something. It might be subconscious and we don’t do it on purpose but very often that’s the case. How often do we want to change our partners to be more than the image in our heads, our perception of the ideal partner? So is unconditional love actually possible?
From my experience how we love people is based on how we love ourselves. And also our perception of the world around us. Because if we don’t love and accept who we are, how can we love others?Posted in Newsletter by Anna Smithers with .
