I think in order to truly have Unconditional love or even love at all, you must first be able to look at yourself… truly look at yourself… be able to look at yourself in the mirror even and say I love you (and not in an arrogant or conceited way) but truly love who you are and understand that God made you and you are learning to let Him mold you into the person you are suppose to be.
I believe that once you have learned to truly love who you are then and only then are you truly able to love others… and when you truly love others unconditionally then in no way would you ever be able to see them less than you are.. but as an equal and know when they hurt you do.. when they smile you smile… we all have to help lift others up and not have to announce it to everyone because they are truly doing it because they love you… it isn’t about keeping score or trying to be better than one…
Most of all… just being able to love who you are being that day… and love others as they are that day.. and over all, be able to know WITHOUT a doubt YOU would lay YOUR life down for them..
When you can do that.. then you know how to love.
**just saying my opinion only**
Excellent post. Let me take it a step further. Once you live through and with love(by loving yourself), then you will love another the same(unconditionally) as yourself, and you both receive the same blessing.
I have surrendered to the universe, to be exactly what I have been created to be I AM
