UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

 

Have you ever loved someone regardless of who or what they did?…certainly we have all loved some children unconditionally but feeling this way toward another adult is much more difficult…we learn to set up expectations and judgments toward adults as we do toward our self…however unconditional acceptance of our self seems to be the best grounds for offering others the same feelings of approval and affection…the Bible clearly tells us to love your neighbor as yourself.

Intense love does not measure, it just gives.~Mother Teresa

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.~Thomas MertonLove is, above all, the gift of oneself. ~Jean Anouilh

 Love… What is love? Love is to love someone for who they are, who they were, and who they will be.~Chris Moore

 Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another’s person hood. ~Karen Casel

“Love is a force that connects us to every strand of the universe, an unconditional state that characterizes human nature, a form of knowledge that is always there for us if only we can open ourselves to it”~Emily Hilburn Sell

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it was, and always will be yours. If it never returns, it was never yours to begin with.~Unknown
