I’ve said it before, and I’ll repeat it- love is one of the best feelings we can experience as humans. A wonderful gift worth celebrating every day of our lives, an incredible cosmic bond that lifts and heals our spirit. People have written songs, plays, poems, and books about the power of love since the beginning of time. Love can take on different shapes and forms.
There’s a tragic, one-sided, naive, puppy, lustful, prohibited, friendly, and the most yearned-for kind of love- unconditional. This is the kind everyone hopes to have, but few are willing or capable of giving in return. When you’re in love, it’s usually the first thing on your mind in the morning and the last thing on your mind at night. Love saturates everything around us with its wonder and grace. We’re put on this planet to live life and learn how to give love, even when things are difficult.
Unconditional love is one of the simplest forms, but it can be the hardest to master. We should all strive to have and give this kind of love in our lives. Most people think of a mother’s love for her child or a loyal dog’s love for its owner when they hear “unconditional love.” Unconditional love for a partner in a romantic relationship isn’t the first thing that pops into mind. The reason could be that couples often place conditions and stipulations on their partner.
Putting Conditions On Love Only Hurts Yourself
It’s easy to love your partner when they’re rich, well-educated, and handsome; it’s harder to love them when they’re down on their luck, experience a physical handicap, or lose their job. That’s unfortunate because everyone deserves love, and loving someone less because of what they do or don’t have fair. Romantic relationships can be one of the best forms of healing available to us.
When you’re in a healthy relationship, your partner becomes your teacher, guide, and cheerleader. They can improve your life and show you the beauty you may have missed in the world. Don’t let conditions, rules, and restrictions rob you of your chance to be with someone who can change your life. Conversely, an unhealthy romantic relationship can damage your spirit and soul, making you question everything about yourself and doubt yourself.
It can make you feel inferior and bring out the worst in you. You can lose yourself in the process of always trying to please someone who, in the end, isn’t the person you’re supposed to be with. If you constantly find yourself in unhealthy relationships and don’t know why, contact a talented online psychic for a love reading. They can give you valuable information about why you are attracted to the wrong people and help you resolve the issues that keep you from meeting the right one.
Healthy relationships can also encourage spiritual growth, allowing you to explore, express and complete each other through love. Whether your relationship is in peace and happiness or experiencing a rough and challenging patch, you can learn how to accept someone besides yourself and develop deep unconditional love.
What Is Unconditional Love?
We’re living in a fantastic time of rediscovery. On a planetary level, we’re in the process of redefining what we consider to be pure love. As a species, we want to love and be loved. We want to experience the life-giving, soul-filling, unconditional, no-restrictions kind of love. We want a love beyond superficial, shallow, and petty issues, one that’s bigger than we are and that seeps out into our everyday interactions with all the different souls we come into contact with.
Unconditional love can be one of the most challenging forms, especially if you’ve experienced heartache. It calls for you to look deep within yourself while thinking above and beyond yourself. It requires putting someone else on your same level and respecting and accepting them for who they are, regardless of what they may or may not have or how they look.
Once you’ve learned to love someone unconditionally, you’ll see that it thrives even in the darkest circumstances and can only get stronger. Unconditional love is an action, not just words; you seek another person’s well-being without worrying about what you’ll get in return. Your “reward” is the feeling you get when you act with love.
Unconditional Love Knows No Boundaries
When you love someone unconditionally, you love them under all conditions, no matter what others tell you. This concept doesn’t apply to an unhealthy relationship, though. I’m strictly referring to wholesome, positive relationships. If someone is purposely hurting, abusing, bringing you down, or cheating on you, this isn’t a healthy relationship, and you shouldn’t accept this behavior from anybody.
If you find that you can only receive love if you do certain things, look a certain way, or act a certain way, this isn’t unconditional love- this is love with conditions. Receiving love without reservation and stipulation is unconditional. Unconditionally loving someone doesn’t mean you have to accept or like everything they do; it just means you love them in a manner that surpasses their mistakes.
It’s Important To Love Yourself Unconditionally Too
Unconditional love isn’t reserved for your partner, family, friends, or co-workers; it’s also for yourself. You need to learn to love yourself no matter what you look like, your mistakes, your economic status, etc. You need to love yourself unconditionally before giving that to someone else.
If you can’t recognize, accept and forgive your imperfections, how can you do this for someone else? It all starts within you. If you don’t view yourself as worthy of pure love, it’ll be almost impossible to see yourself as worthy of offering that to someone else or receiving it from someone who feels that way about you.
Unconditional love accepts you the way you are, with all your flaws and faults, unselfishly and with kindness, without criticism or judgment. Always cherish your individuality and authenticity. Every day you wake up is another chance to give and receive love wholeheartedly. Make it your goal to spread love and leave the world in a better state than how you found it!
