I was touched with this movie. It amazed me how unconditional love can make someones world go round. Loving someone not necessarily means you need to be always reminded that they love you too. Most of the time, actions speak louder than words.

Love is not reciprocal. Love is not expecting an answer, either. Love means to give. I choose to love because I feel like I do, NOT to get - to turn me - love, NOT to be rewarded in any way for "goodness" to "provide" feelings. Mentality "to love without expecting anything mean to throw emotions into the abyss" seems extremely wrong. Rather than think about it, better live alone - the indifference and / or hatred. I love that this is the gift of the most beautiful and most valuable that I can give it to those who (still) I choose to cherish them (so you do not throw me into the abyss feelings because I decide who gives and how much). And do not expect anything in return from those I love, absolutely nothing.

hello joysantos, I love this movie a lot. Yes, this real unconditional love rarely found anymore. I wish more ladies and men were like this and there will be less divorce and more happier couples and happier children because of this concept and this movie. Yes, actions speak louder than words. It also depends how many times your heart has been broken in the past and how well you trust your partner which come with time. Thanks and have a great day! Sincerley Unique16

..hi.. yeah.. that's what I'm teaching myself right now.. I'd like to love my partner without expecting something in return and without conditions.. sometimes, we demand love or we expect our partners to love us the way we do to them, and we forgot that they have their own way of showing their love.. we become blind because of our expectations and we don't realize their own way of showing how they love us.. and when they don't meet our expectations, we conclude that they don't love us.. It is always nice to give love without conditions because we won't feel hurt or neglected.. When I started doing that to my partner, I've realized that I've actually misjudged him and made my own conclusions of what he does.. Now I know that he love me in his own ways that I fail to see before because i have always been expecting him to show his love the way I do to him.. I have so many expectations before that were not met and I became depressed and frustrated.. thanks to Paulo Coelho's book, I was able to be enlightened and realized that I was so wrong.. Now, I'm happy and I love my partner no matter what..
