Unconditional love is not difficult; most often it is a simple truth. It means I love you even when I disagree. I love you when I think you’re being a jerk. I love you when i’m being a jerk. I don’t need to agree with or approve of every single thing about you to love you, and you don’t need to be perfect to be loved. It is a finer love that recognizes our human frailties and continues to love. And the love we share with our families and lovers is not based on some objective evaluation of an individual’s worthiness. Real love is based on our feelings of emotional connectedness, and that connection doesn’t go away unless you cut it off.
