Doodle Card #455 – Love Unconditionally


Love unconditionally.


We can’t begin to love other people and this world until we really begin to love ourselves. It took a few decades for me—literally my entire life—to understand this truth.

“Love ourselves”—it’s not as easy as it sounds. If our self-love is conditional, that’s not a true love.

If I could be much better…

If I could have more money…

If I were in better shape…

These might be the things you need to work on, but can never be a condition for loving yourself.

Dalai Lama once said, “Love is the absence of judgment.” It’s not easy to learn how to love ourselves unconditionally, but it’s worthwhile.
