Love Those Who Love You Unconditionally

Spend your time on those who love you unconditionally

Don't waste it on those who only love you
when the conditions are right for them.

This is happening to me right now. My mom died on February 23 and I was overcome severely with grief. 2 1/2 months after my husband of almost 30 years decides he's had enough and my 28 year old daughter that I have done EVERYTHING for decides to pull herself & my 3 grandchildren away because I am too unstable while I am grieving. I am then evicted because I have no income and I am disabled. Only by the grace of God, He laid my situation on the hearts of complete strangers to bring me into their home. Reading this helps harden my resolve to put my love and energy into my other 3 children, their spouses and my other 7 grandchildren who are supportive of me & love me unconditionally. Thank you so much for these words, they definitely inspired my soul! God bless!!

Bless your heart honey. I lost brother and sister in 10 months in 1996.And in 1998 I lost my step mom and my real mother,22 days apart. And my daughter-in-law is afraid to let my grand kids to come over. She's afraid the almost 5 year old will take a pill I have laying around. Herbs!!!!!!!!!!One excuse is better than none. OH yea the unconditionally part,is guess that's why I have Jesus and my dog.But as Jason Crabb sings "I'd Rather Have Jesus Than Anything This World Can Afford"Me,too!!Hallelujah!!There's no love like God's love.!!!!!!!!!!!

Sadly those that aren't there for the grieving will undoubtly feel awful of how they acted, when their time to grieve comes. Stay close to God.

We all grieve differently and there is no "normal time" to begin moving on. Those who encourage others to get on with their lives are trying to help, but would be better to do something positive for the grieving friend. Sometimes just being taken out to coffee and being LISTENED TO is the most helpful without any other help being offered. We need to be heard, not fixed. Then the healing can start. Let us know you care, cut the lawn, polish shoes before a memorial service, bring a meal and stay to clean up after.

Yes we all grieve different.I lost my dad 3 months ago and noone wants to be around me cuz I'm so sad. My husband doesn't understand and I did start to see a therapist . And my doctor and thrapist said I am normal..everything I am going thru I don't understand how it can be normal but it is for everyone

I lost my husband 5 yrs ago and both of my parents the next year 4 months apart. Grieving is very individual and can take a long time. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of them and talk to them in my heart.

Yes, it is very sad in this day and age of information and education that so many people do not have a clue about what normal grieving is. Either that or they just can't handle it and need to run away or try to shut you down. Find people who understand and hang around them...go to support groups for the grieving. It is so raw in the beginning and it takes alot of time and work. It is important to grieve properly and not stiffle your feelings in order to be healthy as time goes on...those emotions are part of the natural process of grieving in order to overcome! I've been there...loss affects people differently but sadly we lose more then the loved one who passed on...we lose our friends and loved ones who we thought would be there for us!

With epilepsy, waiting on disability hearing, I divorced my emotionally and verbally abusive husband after one month short of 30 years of marriage. God is my refuge and my strength. You're in my prayers. Hold on!

I got with my boy friend when he was 22 and he still got sad about his mom and she died when he was 17. Are son was a stillborn he would have been one this year. Losing your loved ones is something you will never get over you just learn to live with out them. You will always think about them. It does get alot harder before you feel it getting better. I hope you all have a blessed life and things get better for you.

I lost my Mother in July, 2006 and my youngest brother Nov. 2006 just about four months apart. The biggest & hardest lost I've ever faced in my life. I take one day at a time with the grace of the Lord who keep me strong with peace & job.

Dear Anonymous,
Of all people your Spouse should stand behind you no matter what. Not everyone grieves in the same way and no one knows how long it takes. I myself lost my older a year and a half ago. I still find it hard to deal with. I want to call her and hang out. But I can't. Keep the memories because now that's what you have. Love every minute you got to share with your mom and remember shes still with you. She is in your heart. There will come a day when those that turned on you will regret what they have done. Keep your head up and keep the faith. God Bless You.
