Does Everybody Love the Same

This was a question that baffled me.  I wondered if everyone loved the same unconditionally.

I ask my shrink (yes, I see a shink cause I have bipolar, under control by the drug market and my shrink) does everyone love the same.  

Cause I'm the type of person that loves with my whole heart and it is unconditional.

The shrinks answer was "No."  I was disappointed and made him explain.  He says some people only have the compassity to love to a point and that is all they can give.  They never go beyond that.  Their point of loving is not always unconditional.  Some are selfish.

That was a rude awaking to me.  What do you Ladies think of this?

I learned it the hard way, not to expect one's whole heart when I loved them with mine. Then ONLY one I can rely on for that is Jesus. He never disappoints, even when everyone else does.

Unfortunately your  doc is right-ppl love differently and for different reasons.

yes I believe that people do love differently. It takes alot for me to actually love them. I love my children, husband, parents, mil but her husband I care about him but I do not love him. To me their is a difference. I love my brother and sil and newphew but most people I care for but don't actually feel love for them.

I think everyone loves differently, in their own way.

I would say different too....some people are so giving...each is different and others not so personable....but nice...just depends...I've always been on the ok, nice but loner side myself.

Sadly your doctor is probably right.
