Conditional versus unconditional love

 

Conditional love says : « I love you if you are as I want and need you to be. If you are not, then I will withdraw my love from you/ love will not be granted to you”. Being loved conditionally is felt as a contraction in the body rather than as an expansion as it limits the expression of the self. It doesn’t allow us to fully grow and expand into who we truly are. This form of love asks us to conform to another person’s expectation of who we should be or how we should behave according to them and to their own standards.


On weakness… (or shall I say strength?)

 

Most people think that in order to be strong, you cannot be weak; but this cannot be further from the truth as strong people also have the ability to accept and fully embrace their own weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Strength and weakness are only a different spectrum and expression of the same energy.

Real strength is not the absence of weakness. Real strength means that when your weaknesses show up you gather the courage within yourself to look at them, embrace them, heal them and integrate them so that you cannot be manipulated or intimidated by them anymore; neither can anybody else manipulate, control, trigger or intimidate you through opening up or activating that particular wound.
