The velveteen rabbit…
He said, “You become. It takes
a long time. That’s why it doesn’t
happen often to people who break
easily, or have sharp edges, or who
have to be carefully kept. Generally,
by the time you are Real, most of
your hair has been loved off, and your
eyes drop out and you get loose in
the joints and very shabby. But these
things don’t matter at all, because once
you are Real you can’t be ugly, except
to people who don’t understand.”
This is a wonderful story about love.
Anyone who can love in an unconditional way, like loving someone who has most of their hair loved off,
is someone to be treasured.
Most people are only looking for someone else to complete them in some way,
or to do all of the things that they don’t want to do.
- Cooking them breakfast.
- Cooking them dinner every night.
- Giving them sex on demand.
- Continuous appreciation.
- Endless compliments.
- Liking all of their crazy ideas.
- Giving them money.
- Supporting them in every way.
- Buying them things.
- Making them feel like Superman.
- Doing all of the house work.
- Washing their clothes.
- Washing the dishes.
- Paying the bills.
If this sounds like people you have known,
you understand how nice it would be to be loved unconditionally
instead of having to follow all of these conditions to receive anything back.
It’s just not worth it, and quite honestly, impossible to please someone like this.
They are so entitled, and so easily offended, there is really NO WAY to please them.
No matter what you do for someone like this, they always want more.
They may be pleased for the moment, but they are always looking for someone better.
Someone who REALLY loves them.
So it’s no wonder that their relationships don’t last very long.
There is no love to be reciprocated. Only pretending.
Only using someone for their own self gratification, so that they can feel loved.
Endless promises that don’t mean a darned thing.
Like marriage vows once you get divorced.
People are so fickle and conditional.
Not at all like the velveteen rabbit who was loved and loved
and loved some more.
Who became who he was by being loved, and living life
in a real kind of way.
