Happy Love Day!
Have you received unconditional love? Do you give it?
I remember in my teens (a long, long time ago), I was disillusioned that no one accepted me unconditionally–I wanted them to “Take me as I am, even when I misbehaved.” I was too immature to get that my parents loved me no matter what–even when they got mad at my actions.
Reality is “unconditional” love doesn’t mean we won’t ever get upset with those we love. Rather, it’s highly likely we will have intense moments of disagreement and anger (such is life). However, to love someone enough that we are willing to soften our egos, pause, listen, share and forgive is the greatest love of all!
In honor of Valentines Day, become aware of someone you love with whom you are experiencing distance. The name or image of that person may just pop in your mind this minute. Consider softening, engaging and forgiving. Write them a note or give them a call–understanding that you may not agree, yet you can unconditionally-love!
