True, unconditional love is not a feeling as in it can be changed on a whim whenever it’s target is deemed unworthy for whatever reason. No, true, unconditional love is a decision. It is a choice one makes to sacrifice a part of themselves – a part of their soul – to another being, regardless of that being’s worthiness or behavior.
When I say, “I love you” I mean I love you unconditionally. And no matter what, you cannot change the fact that I love you. We may make mistakes; we may hurt each other; we may betray each other’s trust; and we may grow to dislike each other. But, I will always love you because I made a conscious choice to give you a part of my soul and love you unconditionally.
True love is unconditional. True love is forever.
