A Dr. Suess concept concocted as a dream, half-baked, and fed to the masses eager for acceptance and love.
Whoever says life in any way is unconditional has mastered self-love (which can be unconditional), and accepts the world at face value and the terms it presents. Relationships with others are, at their core, conditional on what each party can get out of it. When one party’s conditions are that the other give completely (while they take completely), the relationship ends. Sometimes conditions are parasitic, sometimes symbiotic, sometimes conditions change. But there are always conditions.
Love is based on relationship(s). Life is a complex web of rules and conditions. Always changing, morphing, ebbing and tiding.
Not bad, not good, just is. Life is a conditional reality.
Have a happy day – and love yourself for the wonderful person you are!
