unconditional love

A mother's love is unconditional. She loves her children without asking for anything in return. All her actions are for the good and future of her kids. All the night feedings, all the tears , all the anxities when her kids are sick, she does all these without a complaint.
I cannot think of any other human being who offers such love to another. Any other kind of love falls short of a mother's love.
But when the kids grow up, who do they shower their unconditional love to? Do their mothers get to experience any of such unconditional love in return? In some cases, not at all.


  • I don't know... I really don't know...

    I must admit that my mother raised me, she must have put in a lot of effort and time, but it isn't all unconditional. I'm often forced to meet her expectations, her demands, her wants, and I'm always not giving enough. I'm very tired. I can never please her enough.

    Is this love really unconditional?

    What about the pain she inflicted on us? Everytime we're sick, in pain, she hurled abuse that we are giving her nothing but trouble. There's a lot of fear whenever she's around. If mothers are so good, why can't I feel the tenderness from her?

    It's such a painful relationship, it haunts me for years. Until now, I'm almost 35, I'm afraid of wanting children. Cos I'm not sure if I can be a good mother!! What good will it be if I am like my own mother? Besides, she's been cursing me, that my children will be timesfold worse than I am.

    I'm so tired. And the more people sing about mothers, the more I question about mothers.

    If a mother's love is so unconditional, why should mothers worry about having the same unconditional love back from their children? How is that being 'unconditional' anyway?

  • anonymous, I sense that your mother herself must have gone through a bad time from her own mother.
    She must have felt a lot of hurts and so behaves in this manner.

    Don't let her "curses" define your future role as a mother. You have the freedom to rise up and be different. You need to experience inner healing first.
    When you experience God's unconditional love, you will be st free emotionally to love everyone,including your mother.
