Is any love truly unconditional? or should we just be happy with the imperfect, "conditional" love?
This word love has been thrown around a lot, and has so many meanings that it might as well have no meaning at all, or at least only in certain groups
and social circles it would have different meaning's. But no I do not believe there is truly unconditional love, even a mother will kill her baby if
the situation presented itself and it was her or the baby, it has happened before in the more extreme situations. So at the most situations and lots
in life have more to do with love then vice versa.
And romantic love, well if you go by the divorce rates and all relationships around. If you look at it just statistically wise then no there really is
no such thing as love, we might as well become politically correct and start calling it, "situational temporary coupling". And if you have to
condition yourself for love, then what does that tell you about those who condition them-selfs to love. On this planet I have found that usually the
thing that is most droned in peoples heads or the thing that they want most droned in there heads, usually through movies, media, books, and all types
of conditioning. Is usually there most defunct trait. That does not bode well for love now does it. In fact "love" implies specific conditions,
does it not? So how can it be unconditional.
But on the up side of that if you look for something so badly, and are willing to go through all the # for such a thing, it is because you love that
something. So yes love does exist..... But I really don't think unconditional love exists, unconditional by definition means all situation's, or in
all situations. And there are some harsh situations out there, so NO unconditional love does not exist, all love seems to be conditional, thats why
everybody's got there thing or there conditions that they put up for there "love" to pass, and if it does not then they don't love it. Females are
the easiest to observe in this with there condition's and all that, Males not so much, but there is some conditioning there as well.
But once again one can't really know till one know's all the definitions of "love" that there are..... And like I said it would very from person
to person mostly, but would be the same in some groups. Ever watch TV and that whole groupie's and worshiping of actors or famous musicians thing
that is going on by certain group's. There definition would be the same for love, because they would have the similar condition's, thereby defining
there "love". It is written in the things they read and watch, it's there condition's for love, there highest hopes, to be more precise. So to
cut the rant short before it goes pages and pages and gets off topic. NO it's obvious that there is no such thing as unconditional love.
