Conditional vs. Unconditional love

Recently I had a class where the topic of the day was “human value,” this topic was interesting and even though I knew a lot from before, I was offered different perspectives.

However, I did react to one thing that was said while speaking of our value to others, and their value to us. Personally, I believe that everyone has value, but they have a different value in our life. My postman has value, but my girlfriend has a different value in my life, just as the postman has different value to his wife.

I believe that everyone has value, but they offer a different value in our life.

My teacher spoke about her love for a friend and said something along the lines of; my friend has faults, but I love her nevertheless. Not I love her no matter her faults, but nevertheless, like her love came with conditions, that her flaws where somehow an inconvenience that she would rather she not have. I do not think this is what she meant though, but it did get me thinking.

Not I love her no matter her faults, but nevertheless, like her love came with conditions.

Unconditional love and conditional love can often be hard to distinguish, and often it can be difficult to recognize which one we are giving to others, but most importantly ourselves.

I have more flaws than fingers to count them on, and I’m not saying that you should give a flaw that is bad for you free roam, but rather recognize and accept that for now, it is a part of who you are. You do not need to keep every part of yourself, if it isn’t beneficial to your life, but accepting and loving each fault and perfection, and recognizing that those are the things that make you unique and is what forms you into the person you are now is powerful.

Love yourself and others with no conditions.

Love yourself and others with no conditions. Have the courage to fully accept yourself and your past, even the bad, because it has made you who you are, or is part in making you who you are supposed to be.
