When you love a person more than you love yourself, you don't distance yourself from them when they need you. You don't stay away when you're literally all they have. You don't make excuses. That's not unconditional love.
Being able to recognize such a thing at the age of 19 fills me with much pleasure. I know now that I wouldn't be able to smile if I did that to my lover. The most important person in my life. My source of happiness.
Unconditional love for me is unity; two becoming one.
All that I am, all that you are is reflected in us. WE are united. Opposite sides of a coin, two heads on one snake.
