We learn to “love” as we have been “loved”. 
In this world of dependency on people, we may not ever experience Divine Unconditional Love.
We can learn from our experience with our Source how to love without condition.
Even in spiritual Love, we sometimes interpret Love according to what we saw and heard and felt.

Reconsider how you love.
Change to what you really want.
Forgive the ways you have loved with fear, restriction and distrust.
Give yourself the unconditional Love you truly desire.
Teach always and only the Love you really want.

Loving you, 
Betty Lue 

Do It Anyway

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.  
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.  
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.  
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy it all overnight.  
Build anyway.  

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.  
Be happy anyway.  

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.  
Do good anyway.  

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.  
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.  

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.  
It was never between you and them anyway.
