You can’t help how others respond to you, but you can help how you respond to them.
Family that loves you to pieces when they want, or need you to do something for them, but treat you like crap when you aren’t useful. ~ Ruthie Burkman
If someone needs to love you unconditionally before you accept them or spend time with them, then aren’t you in fact setting conditions and loving them because the conditions are right? The funny thing about love is that a lot of people don’t understand it let alone know how to give it or even accept it. If people are loving you only when the conditions are right then they are really having problems loving themselves in the first place. Any time you have spent loving someone else is never wasted, but life is way better when you are with a person who can be loving through all ups and downs. ~ Tracy Schuster
