Love gets better and better when unconditional trust comes into play

“Loving someone is giving them the power to hurt you, and trusting them not to!”

I actually read that on someone’s Twitter profile and it simply grabbed me at my heart.

Such a powerful statement of truth for what love between two people actually means.

You’ve heard the saying of ‘Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely?

Well, Love enriches and absolute love enriches absolutely. It’s a journey and lifestyle traveled between and shared by two people.

Please do check back on a recent post I wrote ‘What is Love’ and you’ll get an understanding of why I loved the above quote.


To recap though

man and woman need love to survive-1
Ultimately, man and woman need love to survive our journey on Earth

Unconditional love is simply that – there’s no length to the extent you’ll travel with that other person as they’re simply perfect.

You’ve given over totally to who they are, they hold your happiness, well-being, and, dare I say it, soul in their hands.

That’s an awful lot of power to have over another.

When there’s true love in that equation though, there’s also the balance of unconditional trust.


Trust For Two

And what does that mean though?

For many of us, we’ve traveled this road alone, without that significant other.

Now you’ve found the unconditional love of another and you’re now a team.

A powerful team of two.

Facing whatever adversity with the might of two, no longer alone in the dark.

Sharing the experience of learning of two, no longer alone in confusion.

Supporting each other’s strengths and weaknesses, no longer alone, afraid to pick yourself up. Immersed in abundant joy with the fun of two playthings, no longer with a lonely smile.

Absolute and unconditional trust is the glue binding the nuances of unconditional love.

  1. What a great read! Now this is something i strive to achieve in a relationship. Trust definately makes all the difference

    1. Glad you liked the thoughts, Sally. Trust is certainly a foundation of real love and it’s also a two-way street too. It’s also a work in progress as we all slip up from time to time, make mistakes and need forgiveness – which is another level of trust. It’s always a leap of faith and a learning.

  2. WoW Martin, what Words of Wealth you speak.
    My heart simply burst with joy as I read.
    It sometimes can be a very difficult place to be to trust our journey when we are in it, yet when we keep the foreground of WHY a relationship initially cemented itself into being, then letting light shine in on the pathway reveals so much more about each persons' inner wealth.
    Simply love your sensitivity and love, you share in exploring aspects of life not often brought out into the open.
    Much Love and Light

    1. Thank you so much, Tetka – it makes blogging so worthwhile when something touches another. Making a difference by giving.

      Thankfully I'm probably more open than most – good sometimes and sometimes it gets me into trouble :)

      Love and Trust, while the most sought after of emotions and qualities are often the most elusive yet, when combined are the most powerful.

      1. Love it when blogs touch peoples hearts and souls, Martin.
        I am grateful for your openness and from the viewpoint of friend, I am so glad of the love and trust that has been born out of respect and gratefulness for the value we add to each others' journey.
        Much Love and Light

        1. Never a truer saying actually. When sharing my feelings, thoughts and experiences can help the understanding and life of another, that's such an incredible gift from the heart (and makes me feel such a humble buzz too).

          That's a Wow moment, knowing I've helped someone else's relationship with others.
