Why is it so hard for us to accept real, unconditional love?
I can’t even count the number of times I’ve had this conversation with people. It’s so hard for us to believe that someone might actually love us – the real person we are, flaws and all.
Honesty hour: I’m in my first year of marriage, and it’s still hard for me to believe that my husband actually loves me sometimes. I feel a little crazy even typing this, but there have been so many times I have let the enemy convince me that my husband doesn’t actually love me. I’ve even fallen into the trap of believing that he is cheating on me. It happens more than I care to admit. It makes me act paranoid and guarded against him and when he asks what’s wrong, I finally cave and tell him what’s been fogging my mind. You should see how hurt he is every time I allude to the fact that he hasn’t been as devoted to me as he vowed to be.
