I don’t believe that relationships should be entirely unconditional.
I believe that relationships should have some give and take on both sides. Unfortunately, this sounds like work with someone maintaining a scoreboard. Therefore, because people are lazy, they take the easy way out and say love is unconditional.
Love is unconditional, however, people are not. And when two people decide to be together, things happen. It is a clash of personalities, beliefs, and needs. It is also territorial warfare. But seriously, <insert title here>.
Relationships are like sweating. You have to put back in what is taken out. If I am constantly giving love, attention and affection, it has been said that if I truly love and believe that I would not expect anything back. That is not true. If I do not receive any form of love, affection and attention, then I would feel unappreciated, and very much like an idiot. So is it really unconditional?
Sheer nonsense. Relationships are like sweating. You sweat to cool your body to an optimum temperature. Doing so means that you lose water and electrolytes. If you do not replace the water, you become dehydrated. If you do not replace the electrolytes in your body you can suffer from
nausea and vomiting, headache, confusion, lethargy, fatigue, appetite loss, restlessness and irritability, muscle weakness, spasms, or cramps, seizures, and decreased consciousness or coma.
So, tell me again how love is unconditional and asks for nothing? Poppycock. Relationships, like sweating, require balance and if you truly love, then you will find a way to create said balance.
