This comment was by PJ on the post Why I Can’t Love You Unconditionally by Matt Hearnden
This article truly gave me a light bulb moment! I have always been of the belief that partners should love each other unconditionally, loving someone no matter who they are or what they do.
The author helped me to see that “Only I” should love myself unconditionally. I should love myself enough not to let someone else treat with disrespect, unkindness, or any form of contempt.
I also learned that I cannot expect my partner to love me well when I can’t live up to these standards for myself. I never want to be the person who allows someone to treat me badly because I can’t find the courage to treat myself well.
“Never allow someone to be your priority, while allowing yourself to be their option.” Mark Twain
