Unconditional Love

Unconditional love is known as affection without any limitations, or love without conditions.

Often I hear people say to each other “ Oh, I love you unconditionally”, yet the moment they do not love or appreciate what the person is doing, or the direction that they are going with their life, they start judging and NOT actually loving “unconditionally.”  I saw a quote recently on a website (your tango.com) “Actual love, as in unconditional love.  It doesn’t mean that you love everything about the person.  It means you don’t need them to be different than they are for you to be happy.” 

In our day to day lives, in our workplaces, with our family and client involvement, we seem to be able to interact with them lovingly with NO conditions.  If they have a disability, or an ailment, or a behavior, we continue to work with them, care about them and assist them in meeting their goals and having meaningful life experiences throughout the day.  When it comes to “friends” and family perhaps that isn’t always the case.  Seems sometimes that tolerance levels may be different in our personal lives versus our professional lives.  Perhaps that can be the goal for the upcoming months, to work on acceptance of a person/persons that we may have had an intolerance for in the past.  Recognizing that we are all individuals.  In the meantime, we have those special critters in our lives to remind us that for some, its truly just affection without any conditions…
