3. Unconditional love is extremely rare, don’t expect it.
If someone ignores, hurts, or annoys you, it’s unrealistic for them to expect you to always love them. Similarly, if you act out towards your spouse, again and again, they are likely to change the way they think, act, and feel towards you. So don’t expect unconditional love to be there. Don’t take your spouse for granted. Make an effort to make them smile, show empathy and kindness.
Love is a deeply personal and individual thing, it can mean something entirely different you to than what it does to me. Here is my perspective on love.
Love in a relationship of misery is not helping the situation! So if you only have love with turmoil and pain, maybe it is not enough!
On the other hand, you have a great relationship but there is a concern that love isn’t what it used to be, maybe there is no reason to be concerned at all. As love can be built.
Other emotions we experience throughout our week can cause us to lose sight of the love we have. If we are feeling angry, stressed, annoyed, or upset about work, finances, family, or our health, it’s going to affect the happiness and love we feel for someone. So you need to make sure that you don’t over analyze in difficult times.
Hope this helps in some way. I’d love to hear your thoughts about love or read favorite quotes… email them to me or post them below.
