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 hereย “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,
