Conditional Love

Lions, birds, and all other species normally must work extremely hard for affection from a mate, or respect from their peers, so why should you be an exception? Don’t expect you deserve people’s love or respect unconditionally, they don’t owe you it.

Unconditional love occurs only when enough love is present due to rare past events such as a strong bond of blood as is shared with siblings or parents, in which case there may be no amount of negative actions which can ever reduce that amount of love to nothing.
