Hatred – The Absolute Emotional Disease

Hatred or hate is a word that describes intense feelings of dislike. It can be used in a wide variety of contexts, from hatred of inanimate objects to hatred of other people. (Source: Wikipedia)

We might have all experienced this phenomenon. Yes, it really hurts. Some out of jealousy some envy our success, some just envy how happy we are with what we have, and there a zillion reasons of hatred only known to those who hate us.

Can we actually loves and hates someone? Probably we could. Lovebirds do this quite often I think.

Someone said, “Love and hate are not opposites. Both are emotional investments, although they are considered the same side of a coin there are more or less on the same side of the coin, side by side as “heads”.

For tails is indifference. Indifference is where you just do not care – that is the true opposite to love and hate.”

As such it is quite natural to love and hate someone at the same time as an emotional investments in a person, both requires care. Anyhow this is a subjective matter and there could be no wrong or right answer to it as it is a matter of ones’ perception.

Hatred is an emotional burden. It is so heavy and could make one being unreasonable. It is like seeing a ghost when there is actually no ghost around.

The best is to forgive and forget. Let it go. It’s hard but it can be done, forgiveness frees the one who forgives. Life will be wonderful without the feeling of hatred. Forgiveness is something you do for yourself, not the other person. Hatred is a choice you don’t have to make. The feeling of hatred obviously disturbs our emotion.

I have learned to forgive over time. The feeling of hatred hurts. It hurts us as well as hurting the one we hates. Unless we could forgive and forget, the hurt will never heal. Hatred will limit the ability to love or be loved. It is a choice we have to make. Hating people will not make any of us happier.
