How do you, personally, believe that you are innately and unconditionally lovable?

Asked by wundayatta (58377 points ) December 28th, 2009

I know that people love me. I believe I should be loved. I love my children unconditionally. But I never believe I am unconditionally lovable. I always feel like I’m on trial. If I don’t perform well enough, then I lose that love. If someone I love gets really angry at me, then they will kick me out the door the next day (if not the next hour).

Try to look inside yourself and see if you can identify what it is that gives you the knowledge you can be loved unconditionally. What allows you to believe you are loved unconditionally? Are there any life experiences that helped you come to this sense of entitlement? Where does this sense come from?
