For some people it may be ironic or oxymoronic that I would purposely love others in order to make myself feel better. But, sadly, that’s the way it works. To prove that loving others makes you feel better, imagine how you would feel if your whole life you did nothing but help yourself, never showing love for strangers, only loving your own material gain, and then, just when you least deserved it, just when at an unexpected moment for the first time in your life you felt like you needed love, needed help from someone else, someone gave it to you. When you knew yourself that all you deserved was sorrow, someone went out of their way to help you. How would that make you feel?
I don’t know about you but feeling that unconditional love, for me, would probably be a breaking down moment and I would cry and repent my life’s ways.
What, you might ask, is the difference between unconditional love and regular, spousal love? Let me answer that for you.
