Unconditional love is often considered the pinnacle of an amazing relationship, but sometimes it can be difficult to pinpoint what exactly that love entails. Check out this list of 9 things that indicate that you and your partner have that unconditional love for each other!
You respect each other.
You show respect for your partner when you value their opinions and support their decisions. This deep admiration for one another's qualities and achievements is a cornerstone for unconditional love.
You put one another's needs first.
You will put their needs first (of course, without jeopardizing your own) without expecting anything in return. You will prioritize their needs because you care about them and want to support them, not because you are looking for some sort of repayment.
You can be completely yourself in your relationship.
You are able to be 100% yourself in your relationship. You should never feel judged or embarrassed in front of your partner when you are your amazing authentic self.
You have open and honest communication.
This is key to any relationship, not just one in which two people love each other unconditionally. Honest communication is a great indicator that you completely trust you partner and that you also just love sharing everything with them.
You encourage each other to purse your passions.
You want your partner to do what will make them happy, even if it means they may have a little less time to spend time with you. You both know that doing what you are passionate about will let you be the best person possible and bring out the best in the relationship.
You two coexist without being codependent.
Unconditional love never means that you and your partner are codependent for self-esteem or emotional stability. You are both individuals who are independent and self-aware, but better when you are together!
You feel safe when you are together.
When two people love each other unconditionally, they will feel absolutely safe and secure with the other person. Being together should make you feel completely comfortable, like you are at home in their presence.
You both work to express your love to the other every day.
Unconditional love is not something that quietly exists in the background of a relationship, it is something that you work to express to each other every day through words and actions.
You just love loving each other!
The biggest indicator of unconditional love is that you both just love loving each other! It makes you incredibly happy to show your S.O. how much you love them and you truly enjoy being each their partner in life.
