Whether we like it or not, most of us believe in conditional love. We believe we need to earn our acceptance and approval from others. In fact, many of us prefer it. We like to know that we are “good enough” because of the things we can do or the ways we look. We can measure those things. We can improve those things. We can use those things to gain more love if we’re feeling like we’re running a little low on love. But what happens when those “things” start to fail us? What happens when we can’t do the things we once did that gave us a sense of love and acceptance? Our feelings of lovability also decreases. We are expected to believe that we are loved simply because we have intrinsic value. I know this is a hard concept to grasp at first but think about it. What would change for you if you actually knew you were loved and accepted because of WHO you are and not what you can do?
