    Crazy Logic

    I've always had trouble with the idea of unconditional love. People have tried to explain it to me in various ways. They have said it is love given without expectation of anything in return. To me, unconditional love means that there are no conditions. You will love the person...

    Too Much Has Happened To Prove Otherwise

    I see kids with good, healthy relationships with their parents and sometimes (well, a lot of the times actually), I'm envious. I've never known what it's like to have a parent as a best friend, confident, reliant, and predictable adult. Who has been raising me all my life...

    I used to think it existed but after me giving it to another and getting just heartache in return I really don't think I will meet someone who can give it in return.

    I Don'T Think People Think When They Say This...

    "Unconditional Love"People seem to see it as being either black or white. Either there are no conditions and you love each other totally and completely, or, there are conditions, exceptions, clauses, and other legalese which are petty and do nothing at all to contribute to the...

    The Trouble With Love

    You can never, ever be certain that a person loves you unconditionally. You can never truly know the contents of someone's heart. You could be in a wonderful relationship with the person of your dreams. You share everything, know all about each other's life story, likes and...

    It Would Be Nice But....

    Nothing is unconditional. I have been accused of being conditional. But that very same person puts conditions on me...to move, to die, to suffer, to conform to his conditions so that he can be happy. So what's the difference? There is none. Hate blinds a person from moving on, or...
