Remember, unconditional love is giving love without condition and expectation. Therefore, what you may call unconditional love is really your way of earning love, praise, and respect from those you care about.
Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “I hate the sin, but love the sinner.” The good news is that love, at its core, is unconditional, but relationships are not. You can keep the unconditional love flowing and still have respect and value in your relationships by setting clear boundaries for loved ones.
Don’t let anyone come to your table to eat without contributing to the meal. You are valuable and deserve the same love you give out. Once you really believe that, you will not settle for less.
Pour self-love into you. Love yourself first, take care of your wellbeing, and you will attract people in your life who reflect that.
