I Think Hatred Is a Waste of Time

There is no point in hating. You've got to overcome it. 241 People

    Who Does It Hurt?

    It usually hurts the person who is hating, more than the object of the hatred. Freud stated that hate is an egoism - "that one wants to destroy the source of its unhappiness" hmm....sounds like that two horned fallen angel.....ego...hatred...that it him, alright!

    Grudges Are Pointless.

    It's sad to me when I encounter someone

    who thrives on it. It's a sure sign of profound fear and insecurity. The hater doesn't seek to raise others up. The goal is to elevate one's self by lowering those around you. What a tragic waste of valuable time.

    how stupid does it sound to hate someone you

    don't even know because of who they are, how they live, who they love, what color their skin is and etc? I mean last time I checked what I eat don't make you sh@t and aspects of how I live my life doesn't make your life have less value. So why are you so angry with me? Sounds...

    i can never find it in my heart to hate a

    person. No matter the treacherous things they've done whether to me or not. There are tons of people in this world i could hate, probably should hate. but I don't and probably won't. i don't have a specific reason for it, i just can't summon the extra strength to feel so...

    If anyone ever pushes you to hate them just

    leave. Don't confuse hatred for a person with their actions. Hate is when you wouldn't help someone no matter how badly they needed it. You can strongly dislike one or hate their actions if you would still help or provide aid. Either way try to leave as soon as you can

    Come on people. You get one life

    and that life goes by quick. Whats the point of wasting it on stress and hatred? Lets just enjoy life and be happy. If you are intelligent, you will get what im saying and u will realize that hatred is a waste of time.

    Anger and Hate

    I do hate terrorists that rocked our country over...that made us afraid of things we thought we'd never fear. However, I don't hate the insensitive LeRegalia woman who called me a "fucken shrew" today, even though it made me cry. She simply misunderstood who I am. She...
