I recalled a long conversation with bff about “unconditional love”. She said that it is something I can only learn when someone gives it to me. Growing up in an environment of overwhelming expectations where everything that is given must have some form of return, I couldn’t understand what unconditional love was and how some people are like a box of overflowing love. I am always amazed by the amount of love a person give to others without expecting any form of return for the time and energy spent. I even told bff that I don’t think that’s something I can ever do. Until I realised I was forgoing sleep, work opportunities and at times, meals for a little rescue bird that might just fly away someday. If that is unconditional love, then someone must have given it to me for me to be able to learn and give it to that little one. As I observe and ponder, I start to realise that the same warmth hubby has been giving little birdy was the same warmth (or even more) that he had been giving me, I probably just didn’t realised. .
Maybe it’s not unconditional love I was giving - it might just be ‘simple’ love coz the little bird is just giving me back so much joy and laughter with it’s funny antics. But maybe, I might have just understood what unconditional love is. I hope the latter is true. .
No matter, thank you hubby for your love and for making the decision to try and grow the little one even though I was pretty sure it won’t survive. Just like how I thought our relationship wouldn’t survive when we first got together, you have proven me wrong yet again :) #purpleqiyunz
