Unconditional Love is About Acceptance and Growth, Never About Changing Your Partner

When two individuals have genuine and unconditional feelings for each other, and are driven by true love, not ulterior motives, they eventually develop into better people.

People who truly love each other never set any conditions. They are capable of accepting their partner as they are for the rest of their lives. They neglect all of their flaws and imperfections, focusing on their good aspects only.

Let`s face it! We have all been in a situation in which we were driven by motives other than true love, falling for a person or for the idea of how we wanted that person to be. Specifically, we have just made up an ideal partner in our heads and projected them on someone.

However, thinking that we can control a person and remove their imperfections is simply not right. It is hypocritical to believe so when we ourselves are flawed, too. Although we are all looking for perfections, we need to stop for a second and think about whether we are only scared to fall for another person and their true self.

Instead of trying to figure out what has to be changed about your partner, let yourself fall in love without thinking about it. You will soon realize that as time passed by, both of you will change to the better.

Just like with everything else, the change has to start with you. You can expect to receive only what you give.

When you love each other unconditionally, you will motivate each other to become the best version of yourselves. You will be the person that your partner deserves and vice versa.

You will not push things though. You will simply go with the flow… You will never force each other to change or to become anything but who they are. You will have each other`s backs and the change will soon come from within.

You will learn to sacrifice your wants for the benefits of others. When you love them unconditionally, you will never hesitate to sacrifice a temporary want for the well being of your partner and your relationship.

You will love each other fully, fiercely, and passionately. Loving unconditionally means loving with the whole heart. It means loving when your partner is in a bad mood, depressed, sick, or unlovable.

You will love your partner will all of their imperfections and flaws. Every human is imperfect, and loving unconditionally means to accept the fact that everyone will fail. And when your partner does, you will forgive them and continue to love them.

Love like this is difficult to find, but understanding that you need to begin from yourself is the first step. To love others, we must learn to love ourselves first. The way we treat ourselves is a reflection in how we will allow others to treat us.

So, love yourself unconditionally and accept all of your failures, mistakes, and weakness. Self- love is the key!
