My question this morning is what is everyone's prime example or idea of unconditional love? So this custom from a romantic perspective, from the perspective of a parent or child relationship or siblings or even friends? What's your prime example?

For me, it's how God demonstrates His love. God's love is unwavering, and even in despite of the fact that we are sinful, He still sees us the same, He still loves us the same.

I think that was a beautiful response. The only issue I have with that is because God says in the bible that he is love, which obviously attaches to unconditioned love.

I think that we as humans, like some of the other responses have said, we have certain parameters and conditions that a lot of times makes it hard for us to have that with.

Other people outside of like our direct circles, like I said, parent, child, maybe even a pet. That was beautifully said though, I like what you just said.

Yes, absolutely. I couldn't agree more and that is why that's my idea of unconditional love because as humans there is a certain extent how we extend our love.

But you know what, at the same time, I could say that my parents showed and is still showing unconditional love for me because Even despite the fact that I can disappoint them, I could hurt them They still love me to say.

Exactly, and I feel like because we are operating within a human capacity, that means literally we only have so much capacity for certain things, right? So that includes like unconditional love.

And the capacity of parameters at which extent we can receive that and I feel like the parent-child relationship is usually what the only type for most people that they receive is through that you know what I mean?

Here's a hot take. I don't think unconditional love is healthy, but let's talk more about it. I definitely think you need to have standards and put conditions for those people that you show love to.

For example, there are certain relationships where you just can't help but love that person. Sometimes that's, you know, a parent and child relationship or maybe even a romantic relationship but just because you love someone doesn't mean that they are good for you or healthy in your life.

So many of us have been conditioned that because someone's your spouse or your family, you need to love, you need to forgive them no matter what. But if something isn't healthy for you, we need to start normalizing that hey um I love you but you're just not at my table.

Wow, yeah, you just seriously hit the nail on the head. It's almost like, you know, the saying like, I'm gonna have to love you from afar, I'm gonna have to love you from a distance. I think that is very true and that holds a lot of weight. Because like you said, it's like a social norm.

And conditioning to be taught and told that you have to love certain people unconditionally just because they share the same blood as you or are in the same, you know, they are directly linked to you and that's not necessarily true.

Absolutely, I think there's so much societal pressure um about how we're supposed to love someone but I think at the end of the day it's so important for us to know what love we can even give so we don't over burn ourselves.

Once it hit the nail on the head, I think that is very true in knowing at what level or capacity we have to cap out and say, okay, that's it. I can't do it anymore and I'm literally going to have to remove myself. It's almost like creating boundaries.

And I think when certain people are used to having that unconditional tether and Unconditional access, excuse me, access to you unconditionally as far as love is concerned when you do put up boundaries Like those are usually the people that are really upset.

My unconditional love is like a phase, like a phase you go through, you know what I'm saying? Because I remember or I recall me being that, you know, with my significant other. That shit went away when things started happening. You know, you just look back and things happen.

Ah, okay, so you're the first person to respond with the aspect from a relationship perspective, and some of it I agree with, but I also feel like too it takes a specific person.

And the reason I say this is because like for instance with me and my husband I feel like I do love him unconditionally in a sense. I mean I've had other relationships I've actually been married before him and I did not feel that the first time.

I think the thing with me loving him unconditionally too is because we were friends first and I think that really helped it excuse me that really helped us cultivate like a certain level in our foundation where I Like feel that for him. I don't know how to explain

Again, I feel like it was a phase. I'm not saying that it can't come back, but again, it's a phase to me. Unconditional, other than with the children, I don't think exist anymore. I could be wrong though.

To love someone unconditionally is to accept them at their best and their worst. Accept their mistakes as well as their flaws.

Yeah, I definitely have to agree the overall consensus of unconditional love is literally to love someone or something, like despite, like you said, flaws, them being perfect, you just love them wholeheartedly.

Well for me, I do believe that the unconditional love that I received was from my mom. And looking back, or looking at my relationships now with my brothers.

Yes, yeah I think a lot of people do, if they do believe in unconditional love, their first source is usually like your parents, so like a parent-child relationship, so very relatable.

Okay, so my comment is solely from a universal stand. It could be for your friends, family, whoever who's in your life. When you genuinely know that person wants the best for you.

When they'll do whatever it takes to go out of their way to make sure you're good and make sure you're happy because they care about your mental health, that's unconditional love. Unconditional love is selfless. It does not discriminate. It does not judge.

Good morning, I think that was a great response and I agree, you know, love in general I think should be selfless in a sense and I feel like unconditional love is basically the epitome of what selflessness is in love. So I like your response.

Unconditional love for me is not tolerating the person's mistakes but also allowing them to learn and grow from it.

That's true. I believe a couple of people have basically said, you know, it should be judgment free and not holding that over them and still loving them, regardless of their mistakes or imperfections.

Unconditional love to me means just that. Love without condition. Period.

An example, I love my cat so much that even when she one time attacked me and damn near took my eyeballs out, I still love her just the same and always will.
