6 Ways To Show Unconditional Love Without Been Taken Advantage Of

Loving unconditionally is one of the greatest gifts we can give another person. But what do you do when the love you are giving is not appreciated and leaves you feeling completely taken advantage of?

Receiving unconditional love is just as important as giving unconditional love; otherwise, what was once a beautiful gesture turns into disappointment, anger, and upset. If you’re feeling unappreciated in this way and think your partner does not know how to show unconditional love, it’s time to take your power back and balance your relationships (or move on to bigger and better things).

 

When you feel taken advantage of it is time to take an honest look at your relationship:

  • Does your partner add to or take away from the relationship?
  • Are you feeling underappreciated despite everything you put forth in the relationship?
  • Are you picking up all the slack and/or making excuses for a loved one’s behavior?
  • Do you feel like your own happiness comes second to your partner’s?

 

Perhaps you’re doing all the chores around the house or taking on all the financial responsibility, while your beloved is racking up debt. Either way, if you answered yes to any of the questions above, you need to reevaluate your relationship and stop being a doormat.

Your partner treats you exactly the way you allow them to. Look to yourself to meet your needs before attempting to meet the needs of others around you. When you give too much of yourself, you feel drained and taken advantage of by the people who should care for you.

Putting yourself first sends a signal to people around you that you respect yourself, and that your needs, wants, and desires are as important as theirs. Putting yourself first starts with saying “No” to unreasonable requests, especially when a loved one can do it for themselves. Stop letting yourself be used and abused for the sake of love.

No matter what the issue is, you have the power to say, “No.” You have the right to ask for and expect reciprocity from love relationships. Putting yourself first is loving yourself unconditionally. Feeling full of love allows you to give more love to others around you. But how do you get there? How do you learn how to show unconditional love to yourself?

 

1. Find out why you feel like you must earn love from others by overdoing it.

Look for patterns in your past behavior when you gave love, only for people to walk out of your life without even a thank you. Look inside of yourself and your past to find the answers.

 

2. Once you see a pattern, own it as your problem and put a stop to it.

Start loving yourself the way you want others to show love to you. Begin this self-love by creating little love rituals for yourself — buy yourself flowers, enjoy a relaxing bath with candles, or treat yourself to a small luxury on a regular basis.

 

3. Don’t allow yourself to feel guilty.

This is hard in the beginning but stick with it. You deserve to receive the level and quality of love that you put out there.

4. Write a list of affirmations and read them to yourself daily.

This can include affirmations such as, “My relationships are loving and balanced,” “My loved ones appreciate and value me,” or, “I give myself permission to receive love.”

My psychic experiences started as a child and I seemed to know in advance what was going to happen or what someone's motives were in a given situation. I would see images and have dreams that came true. I had an inner knowing of the factors at play, and how things would turn out. I thought everyone could see these things until I got older and realized that not everyone was getting the psychic memo.
