Let’s talk about unconditional love.
More specifically, the word “unconditional.”
What does it mean? The dictionary defines it very simply as “not subject to any conditions.”
Here’s how I see it: when you love someone, you are willing to love them without expecting anything in return.
Example: You’re partner gets sick. You get them soup and medicine because you want to see them get better. Not because you want them to be in your debt and have something to dangle over them when you get upset.
Now I feel that I should say there are some subtle nuances to this. It’s perfectly fine to have the desire for your partner to do the same back if you got sick. What is not okay it to go into with the thought, “oh I’m gonna do this thing for them and if they don’t do it back exactly as I want, they’re in big trouble.” That is a love that has conditions because it’s not coming from a genuine place of kindness and love.
Of course, we can’t just “do do do” for someone and never get anything back. A relationship is a give and take both ways. That’s where clear communication and alignment with your values come into play.
You have to get clear on your “why?” Why do you do the things that you do? Is it truly for your heart? Or does it have strings attached?
Take some time today to realign with your values and ask yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing.
Much love + Your Cycle Half,
