Unconditional Love

Some things I have been thinking about a lot lately.......

Unconditional love........can it be learned, or must we be its recipient to truly understand what it is?

Definition from Wikipedia:
Unconditional love is a term that means to love someone regardless of one's actions or beliefs. It is a concept comparable to true love, a term which is more frequently used to describe love between lovers. By contrast, unconditional love is frequently used to describe love between family members, comrades in arms and between others in highly committed relationships. It has also been used in a Christian context to describe God's love for humankind through the forgiveness of Christ.

I have written and deleted what I have wanted to say over 10 times tonight. I can't exactly put my thoughts down into words, so I'll just end with this thought:

"Family love is messy, clinging, and of an annoying and repetitive pattern, like bad wallpaper." Friedrich Nietzche

Is everything okay? If you ever want to talk, please call me. I'm sorry you're going through something tough right now, even though I don't know what is actually wrong.
