Four reasons why unconditional love is a gift to yourself:
  1. Effortless Relationship Building: Unconditional love within oneself makes building a relationship effortless, reducing dependence on a partner's behavior.

  2. Strength and Self-Awareness: Unconditional love allows individuals to feel stronger, more self-aware, and not fall into a victim role when faced with relationship challenges.

  3. Transformative Power: Unconditional love is described as one of the most valuable gifts individuals can give themselves, enabling personal growth and emotional resilience.

  4. Independence from Partner's Behavior: Unconditional love makes individuals less dependent on their partner's behavior and more capable of maintaining an open heart and positive emotions even when the relationship faces difficulties.

Unconditional love is often defined as loving someone without expecting anything in return and accepting them for who they are. This definition falls short of fully capturing the depth of unconditional love in intimate relationships.

As children we had open hearts and loved unconditionally. We learn conditional love from our parents, friends, family, and lovers. These conditions can create reflexive behaviors in relationships, but it is possible to untrain them.

There are three fundamental ways to approach a relationship: taking, negotiating, and giving. Giving is the only method that leads to unconditional love. Taking involves giving only when one's own needs are met, while negotiating, although better, can eventually lead to a loss of passion. Giving, on the other hand, is the path to unconditional love. Rediscovering unconditional love within oneself can make building a relationship effortless and less dependent on a partner's behavior.

Yet common beliefs and emotions may hold us back. Unconditional giving does not mean accepting everything without boundaries. Communication of needs and boundaries is essential, and if one's Relationship needs are consistently unmet, it may be time to reevaluate the relationship without playing the victim.

In conclusion, pursuing unconditional love in relationships, releases a transformative power. It encourages self-awareness, open communication, and the importance of giving within a partnership.
