Beauty of Unconditional Love
When we love someone, we do so with conditions attached. We love them as long as they meet our expectations and make us happy. If they don’t, we may withdraw our love or give silent treatment. Unconditional love is different. It’s not based on what the other person does or doesn’t do; it’s given freely and without expectations.
When you love unconditionally, you accept the person for who they are, flaws and all. You don’t try to change them or control them, but you still care about their well-being and happiness. You’re there for them when they need you, even if they don’t always appreciate it or return your affections in the way you want.
Unconditional love is often misunderstood as a sign of weakness, but it’s actually one of the strongest things you can do. It takes courage to love someone unconditionally, especially when they don’t treat you well in return. But it’s worth it because it can lead to more meaningful and lasting relationships built on trust, respect, and true connection.

Love Languages To Take Note Of
When it comes to expressing your love, sometimes the simplest gestures can mean the most. This Valentine’s Day, show your loved ones just how much you care with some simple acts of kindness.
To know what exactly to do, here are love languages that you may use depending on the person you will give love to!
Words of Affirmation
Verbal connection is highly valued by those of us whose love language is words of affirmation. They want to know exactly what you find admirable or appreciable in them.
For instance, “Wow, that was such lovely of you to organize that neighborhood campfire,” “I truly enjoyed it when you served supper last night,” or simply “I adore you.” You may make a little movie to send to the individuals in your life that you aren’t able to see in person because of the epidemic.
Acts of Service
Some of us experience the deepest feelings of love when others extend a helping hand or show us kindness.
You might take the initiative in your house and take action to make your loved one’s everyday routine easier. Why not tackle the task that everyone avoids doing, whether it be emptying and running the dishwasher, cleaning the oven, or changing the litter box? Someone whose love tank is filled by helping others will receive a clear and loving message when they observe someone purposefully looking around to see what they can do to improve their surroundings.
Those that use presents as their preferred form of communication aren’t always materialistic.
Instead, when someone gives them a particular item, material or intangible, that makes them feel special, their tanks are full. It is true that what matters is the thought. Pick up your roommate’s preferred kombucha or seltzer while out shopping for your family and leave it by their door.
For those whose love language is quality time, having another person’s full attention is valuable currency.
Make a conscious effort to go for distant walks with your in-laws or to arrange Zoom coffee dates with the coworkers you’ve been missing. Schedule a weekly phone conversation with your closest friend, or plan a home-based date night with your partner or spouse. Distractions like phones or “I’m just going to switch on the TV for a minute” are not permitted. Being their only priority expresses “I love you” in the language of quality time better than anything else.
The language of physical contact may be expressed in a variety of ways, from the platonic fist-bump you give a friend when she tells you she landed an interview for her dream job to the more private kiss you share with your spouse to close the workday.
During this epidemic and at this juncture in the globe, learning love languages is a topic worth mastering. We were already experiencing an epidemic of loneliness before COVID emerged on the scene. Being lonely involves more than simply being alone yourself; it also involves lacking fulfilling emotional connections. We may make our connections and ties to people stronger by taking the effort to figure out each other’s love languages and then expressing them.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Write a heartfelt letter expressing your feelings for them
- Make them breakfast in bed
- Roses are always a classic way to show your love, but why not mix it up and give them their favorite flower?
- Plan a special evening out, whether it’s dinner and a movie or something else they’ll enjoy
- Do something nice for them without them asking, like doing the dishes or taking the dog for a walk
No matter what you do, remember that it’s the thought that counts!
What You Can Do on Your Own to Appreciate the Love You Get
There are many things you can do on your own to appreciate the love you get. Below are some suggestions:
- Make a list of all the people who have shown you love, no matter how big or small. This could include friends, family, partners, pets, etc.
- Write down what each person has done that made you feel loved.
- Take some time out for yourself to reflect on all the love you have in your life. Appreciate all the wonderful people and creatures who make your life rich and meaningful.
- Show your loved ones how much you appreciate them by doing something special for them. This could be anything from cooking their favorite meal to taking them on a special date. Whatever it is, make sure it comes from the heart and is tailored specifically for them.
