Truths and Myths of Unconditional Love

Demystifying Unconditional Love

Unconditional love seems pretty straightforward: It’s the idea that you love someone, no matter what. However, it’s not that simple. There is some nuance to the concept, especially in terms of how unconditional love manifests within a romantic relationship.

To truly, totally love someone, it’s important to understand the myths and truths that come with the territory. Here are some of the things you need to know.

Truth: You accept your partner for who he or she is.
Loving someone absolutely means not trying to change him or her. You appreciate your partner’s quirks and idiosyncrasies and you are interested in nurturing who he or she truly is.

Myth: You have to love everything about your partner.
That said, it’s not realistic to think you’re never going to be annoyed or turned off by anything your partner says or does. Truly loving someone doesn’t mean that you have to love the way he leaves his dirty clothes on the floor or that she has to compulsively do the dishes the minute a meal is over.

Truth: You stand up for your partner.
Unconditional love means standing by your significant other—whether it’s backing him up when he expresses something he’s passionate about or defending her when someone is being critical. Being supportive and showing that you’re on your partner’s team is a huge factor when it comes to expressing your devotion to him or her.

Myth: You never have constructive criticism for your partner.
Naturally, you may disagree with something your partner says or does. Sharing honest feedback with your partner, especially when it comes to how he or she treats you, is an important part of a loving relationship. If you never point out anything negative about him or her, you don’t give the person the opportunity to grow.

Truth: You respect your partner—always.
When you really love someone, you never go behind his or her back, you are always faithful and you make sure that you never verbally or physically disrespect him or her. Respect is the foundation of a strong relationship and a crucial part of unconditional love.

Myth: You never fight or say a harsh word.
In any relationship, you’re going to have conflicts. You may even say things you come to regret. We’re all human, after all. But you also know when to apologize if you utter something you don’t really mean in the heat of the moment.

Truth: You truly want your partner to be happy.
Happiness is a key part of a relationship, whether it’s a romantic partnership or even a friendship. Supporting him or her in a pursuit of happiness, whether it’s encouraging the person to foster a certain hobby or a desire to travel, means that you’re wholeheartedly invested in your partner’s emotional well-being.

Myth: You believe your partner can only be happy with you.
There’s a saying that if you love someone, you have to be willing to let him or her go, if that’s what the person wants. If your relationship isn’t working for your significant other, and you love this person unconditionally, you should want him or her to be with someone who can be the partner he or she needs. The bottom line? You truly want him or her to be happy, no matter what.

    Greetings my situation is too involved to bore you with all details however, my husband and I were in a severe hitnrun accident we were on our motorcycle on our way to meet friends for lunch we were hit at 90mph I by God’s grace lived but lost the love of my life 31 days later. I’m going through complete devastation even after almost a year. We were the couple everyone wanted to be. We truely were one.. 24/7 we were together and it’s what we both wanted. We traveled everywhere. I feel we complimented each other’s existence. A perfect life and I’m not glamorizing our relationship because because he left to go home. I still pretend he’s in his office here or outside. I talk to him all the time he answers and visits often. Wish I could send you a picture of his bright orb. Anyway his kids are contesting the will and our home is in probate it’s home re dreaded so it’s up for grabs they could get it. Do you think I’ll be blessed enough to keep our home?

    Your comments are not thorough enough for someone who’s never experienced a relationship. Example – you can’t make a hateful comment that hurts someone so deeply and then expect an apology will fix and erase, especially if in the heat of the moment one says it intentionally to purposely wound the other. If what is said, is sharp and offends the other, but there is no ill intent, just angry hurt words, repairs can mend, it will most likely apply to both parties. There’s a difference in the two.
    Again, your last one. In the partnership, love, trust & respect should be mutual between the two. Just writing if you love that person, and the feelings are not mutual, you can’t just tell someone they need to let them go – and if it’s meant to be they will come back. While that is a quote widely used, the person that is holding on, needs to realize they will end upgetting hurt because the other party will not have thesame love and respect to return because it’s not there. When two love truly love each other, the give and take are equal, not one sided. For the one that loves less, simply will not know how to return what’s needed.
    Your audience is mixed – a seasoned adult will understand and perhaps read between the lines but you should also think about a much younger audience as well. I’m sorry but I feel your responses are vague.
    Kindest regards
