Unconditional Love = liking a person all the time?

One of my favorite lines from a movie is "I Love you {Benny], but I don't have to like you right now".
 Name that movie! That's right, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Another chick flick reference, surprise, surprise.
I use that line ALL the time. With my hubby, my children, friends & family. Regardless of what someone I love does to me, no matter how angry you make me I'll still love you. You better believe I won't like you for a while. In fact, I will give you the mother of all attitudes. When you do something that hurts me the hulk comes out. Mind you, my hulk is pink & bedazzled but she's still a bitch. Like the hulk, I change back pretty quickly. Looking back on my past I have never shunned anyone I loved for all eternity. Correct me if I am wrong. If a friendship ended it was because the other party had no unconditional love for me.

Through out my childhood and early adulthood I believed my mother's love was conditional. It is so true when parents say, you'll understand what I am doing once you become a parent. Parents! If they are not abusive, they ARE always right. It makes me a little mad. I'm not mad that they were right, I am mad that I did not realize it sooner. The day I realized that parents really do know it all was the day I found out I was pregnant with Jayden. A month earlier my mom had asked me "are you pregnant?"  It was so random. I was not nauseated. But she said she had a feeling. I did not know it at the time but I was pregnant. My father calls me every time I am feeling blue and tells me "remember we are always here for you". Also very randomly without me voicing my emotions. The bond of a parent and child, powerful stuff!

Anyway, what I thought it was conditional love but it was just tough love. I read somewhere that unconditional love meant that your feelings should not change based on the other's person behavior. Is love really loving EVERYTHING about a person ALL THE TIME?  Is that really possible? I think not. I really have a low tolerance for shenanigans. But remember: ♪♫ AND IIIIIIIIIIIIIII-E-IIIIIIIII WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOUUUUUU-OOOOOOHHHH♪♫. You guys know who you are. If you question whether or not I love you. Just ask!

    1. Oh gosh no! You are one of those people that I ignore all the time, avoid at all costs & block on FB. Did you really question if you were on my good list?
