HOW TO LOVE YOUR SPOUSE UNCONDITIONALLY
As imperfect beings striving and struggling to be perfect, it can be so difficult to love someone unconditionally, lots of love and loving comes with conditions which it’s not supposed to be so. Some people love because of money, height, earthly possession, skin type or color, race, beauty, and the likes. This means that without meeting these conditions one might not love and be loved. The fact still remains that this shouldn’t be so because the natural kind of love comes without any conditions. I believe we all need unconditional love from a partner but some people find it very difficult. It isn’t an easy thing to do but it is still doable if we put our mind to it.
Do you seek to love your spouse unconditionally then use these practical steps to achieve it.
- Overlook imperfections:
Nobody is perfect; this should be written boldly on everyone minds. When once we come to terms with this phrase then we will love freely without holding back. Try to overlook the tantrums, bad habits, misbehavior and childishness of your partner.
- Caution with love:
Yes, the only constant thing in nature is change. I know there are changes that we might love to see in our partner. Nagging will not help the matter, physical or emotional abusing your partner will out rightly kill the love you’re trying to build. So just be very careful when trying to get your partner to change a certain trait but if possible live with it.
- Live by example:
We can teach our partner through our own way of life. Don’t only preach unconditional love, walk the talk. Be a giver to receive too. Even if your partner is yet to reciprocate please continue, your partner is still learning the ropes, so don’t give up so soon. Keep up the pace he or she will soon join you in the race.
- Learn to forgive:
I know it never easy especially when one has been badly hurt but it still okay. Just look beyond the hurt and let go. Don’t let negative emotions build a home in your heart and permanently lived there. You gain nothing by carrying around bad energy, so purge yourself of that and forgive your spouse or partner and just have pure love for him or her.
- Pray for your partner:
Well, I do this often for my spouse because I need God to touch his heart and give him the same spirit to love me genuinely and it has been working. You can do same pray God should help your partner to love you the way he or she should and nothing should hold them back.
- Open communication line:
Communicate with your partner daily and it should be a two-way thing. Not only doing all the talking. Sometimes all that our partner needs is a listening ear. So avail he or she of yours but still make an input where necessary. Communication is actually the key in a relationship, so always try to unlock all necessary doors.
You have them now, please don’t just read try to work with them. So how do you show unconditional love to your spouse?
