I thought the 'return' was a place in Heaven?

You know that some animals will stick with you through thick and thin? They never make judgements either.

Some critters are capable of love. Sometimes it amazes me.

Never ashamed to be human but disappointed with things that some humans do.

Disappointment, that would require appointment, sounds like a condition. Loved ones have hurt me, disappointed me and other things, this isn't a condition of love, I still love them.

Never hurts you? That is a tall order. nobody that I love has never hurt me. Unconditional means them hurting you isn't a condition. True a perfect person would be easier to love but since they are scarce we have to settle for imperfection.

Unconditional love is about forgiveness redemption and grace, not about never being hurt.

I understand, it isn't easy.

I have been so deeply hurt that family members are not part of my life anymore, one I just can't ever bear to see again, but i still love them, i can't stop that.

To be a truly unconditional love, we need to dismiss our petty beliefs. No one can accept another as required for this, with preconceived absolutes, it is impossible in my opinion. There are a few things we can do to work toward it however:

1) Accept the fact every single human being is imperfect.

2) Understand that YOU are the only person that controls what you are...and thus what you do.

3) Try to love because it feels good, makes you a better person, and most certainly creates a better day.

4) Unconditional love seems to mean that by giving it to another, you become a better person...


Take the freakin' "Win-Win"!
