Unconditional Love is known as affection without any limitations, or love without conditions. We’ve all seen, felt, heard or thought about the love between a mother/father and child or a pet owner and their fur baby. When we come across this unconditional love between parents and their kids, either human or fur, we know it right away.
We've experienced it ourselves with our own kids, grandkids, and fur babies. Even when they make mistakes or take actions which contradict with our desired actions for them to take, we find a way to have compassion for them without being judgmental and critical.
However, when it is us....it's a whole new story. Our actions towards ourselves make the act of loving ourselves extremely conditional. The inner bully comes out when our behaviors contradict with our intended ones. We seem to forget we are a human doing our best navigate the roller coaster ride of life.
