When I asked these questions on my personal facebook page a while ago different people had different answers. I expected this because as well all know we are coming to this life experience with different perspectives and when we use words like 'love' it is truly subjective based on whom we are and our life experience thus far.
Love is an intense feeling of deep fondness or liking.
This is my definition of love but even this concept had me contemplating.
I have so many thoughts and I'm not exactly sure what my personal answers are to these questions.
Can you truly love someone you don't trust? And if so, what does this mean?
Perhaps it means you love someone not unconditionally but with conditions to the love you feel for them. I can definitely see how this may be appropriate. But it feels so "wrong" to me. But I also know ... I know that I love everyone. I do. I love the sacredness that we all are ... I love the whole being you (yes, you, the individual reading this blog post) are. And I do realize that I don't trust everyone. I don't trust everyone with everything. I am aware of this. I know that I don’t trust some people to take care of my children like I do. I don't trust everyone to make the same decisions in regards to them as I do. And I understand that it is because we are different people with different experiences and different perspectives.
But this doesn’t mean that I don't love them.
As contradictory as I find the two images – I guess they do speak truth. But something about that second one still irks me.
