I Think Hatred Is a Waste of Time

There is no point in hating. You've got to overcome it. 325 People

    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...

    I think hatred is a natural emotions

    and in some cases is warranted. I think many cases it can be very unhealthy, but in the same breath, I don't think simply forgiving and forgetting is necessarily an equalizing feeling. Hated is born out of neglect, abuse, mistreatment, unfair treatment, being attacked, taken...

    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...

    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!

    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.

    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

    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...

    After a good night's rest,

    I feel content with the world at large. There are many things I see that it could improve on, but the people I've met make it all worthwhile. Just thinking of being with them is enough to warm my heart.
