I love unconditionally, with both my heart and my eyes wide open.
Truly loving another does not mean being blind to faults or flaws or imperfections, it means seeing everything clearly and still loving. It means knowing that all those faults and quirks and idiosyncrasies make up the very fabric of the person we love. When we love another unconditionally we love the whole person, not just the parts that suit us. Loving unconditionally does not mean turning a blind eye to unloving behavior , it means loving in spite of the behavior- even if from a healthy distance. True love is not blind but it is unconditional. It sees the whole and loves the whole because it is the sum total of our parts that makes us who we are.
