Loving Someone Unconditionally

Giving unconditional love requires you to love without any expectations. It seems difficult to only love and not demand anything in return in today's world where everyone is selfish and egotistic. But even in this world we see many examples of unconditional love, for example the love of a mother to her child, the love between two life partners and the love bestowed upon siblings. Loving someone unconditionally means we have to learn how to sacrifice our selves, our desires, and most importantly our egos for we are not suppose to expect anything from the person we love.

It's true that love makes its way itself. When we love somebody with so much passion and emotion, it's sure to come round in one way or another. But if somehow we don't get as much as we give, we must realize not to complain or argue because in order to love someone else unconditionally, we must first love ourselves and accept the fact that as humans we all have faults and blemishes, and will inevitably make mistakes. We must be aware of our own imperfections and realize that since we are not perfect, others won't be either. Always keep in mind that loving others and giving them everything we have will make us satisfied and happy with ourselves.

At some point in our lives we all demand some kind of love and want to express our own love for someone. Believe in the principle of giving more and demanding less. When someone asks you for a favor always be ready to give it. Never complain that you don't have enough or you have other tasks to do. Set your priorities in such a way that everyone else comes first and your own demands come last.

Let us keep in our hearts that when we love somebody unconditionally, we want the best for that person. Think positively about them even if they make mistakes or do not return our feelings. Give them sincere advice about their future and other decisions. Always look around for the betterment of your loved ones without any envy on your part. If you have to sacrifice something of your own for them, don't hesitate to do so. Only then you will truly be able to love unconditionally.

Remember that unconditional love is given without any expectations or limitations. We don't define any scope of our love or that how long will we love a person. This is an eternal feeling which should be kept alive in all circumstances and all situations. We must never lose hope and keep on loving people who are dear and close to us, only then we will be able to live a completely satisfied and emotionally balanced life. - ALDRIN PURUGGANAN
