Do you believe that there is such a thing as "Unconditional Love" ? A Love that survives and endures ALL Things ? I used to but lately I have been thinking about this a lot and have come to the conclusion that there isn't such a thing as unconditional love .
For the sake of argument , I will give as a example the love of a baby for the mother . The baby will love the mother or care giver ... as long as all it's needs are met . A parent may say they have unconditional love for their child but do they ? Isn't there always some hidden condition , stipulation, that they may not even be aware of, between the parent and the child ? Such as ... maybe a behavior that the parent expects from the child . Or prehappes the child assumes the parent will always be willing to be a provider for them even after adult hood is reached .
Maybe these aren't good examples , but this is what I could think of at the moment . I am NOT SAYING that love won't always be there between people , but rather, that whether or not one is aware of it , there are conditions to love , be it hidden or out in the open . How do you feel about this ?
