Unconditional Love Is Part 6 of the 6 Skills Needed to Help Regain Control of Your Drinking

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.

The Sneaky Way Words Affect Our Life

Our life is constantly changing—that’s the beauty of being human.

And here’s another truth:  YOU change too. You change your mind about things you used to be adamant about.

I’ve experienced this myself in many areas of my life. For example, when it came to my relationship with alcohol, five years ago I would have said: There is absolutely no way I’m going to be free from this hold alcohol has on my life.
