Do you love me, yes or no?

By jade

Some questions are more important than others. I’m sure you’ve noticed this in life.

When my daughter was old enough to write sentences, (about 4 – she was in the first grade when she was 5). Whenever she thought she might be or did get into trouble I would find a folded up piece of paper with the same question on it.

There were always two boxes that she would add and I always had the choice of putting an “x” in either box.

Of course I always marked the ‘yes’ box. These notes continued until her teens at which point she determined my love was “unconditional” for the rest of our lives. Of course.

My point hereΒ “Unconditional Love” is so incredibly important in life. You see, it’s that other box and the potential of a “no” that can be so frightening for a child. Love should never be used as a leverage point. There should be no doubt!

And yes, as an adult loving unconditionally, does lay you open for potential hurt, but it is still the only way that love should be given – unconditionally. Life is too special for any other answer!

Hope your week is going well,

    • Thanks LuAnn, as you can see I’m online right now, but it has been busy, doing a lot of writing (on the side right now) and of course family (and visitor) type things too! All is well,and I am hoping all is going well with the two of you!

  1. Beautiful written, let me spell it B -E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L-

  2. Sometimes, parents make you believe that they won’t like you any longer if you get poor grades. It could be either a motivating factor for hard work or a frightening thing for the sensitive kids. Thought-provoking post

    • Hi Marina, my favoritest artist and musician and lover of people and animals and life and … of course you believe in unconditional love … part of your makeup! πŸ™‚ xxxxxxxxxx and a special plus “love”! xo

    • Hi Harula, how are you doing dear friend? My life has been crazy busy recently, but all good, I will keep sharing the love and you also, which you do so well, many blessing back your way,

  3. I’ve always thought unconditional love should be reserved for only those few who have earned it, but you got me thinking — how does one go about ‘earning’ unconditional love ? And, it may very well be that the only true love is the unconditional kind.

    wow.. this thinking stuff is hard– no wonder I don’t do much of it. πŸ˜€

    wonderful post, Penny.

Thank you for your thoughts!
