On hatred

Do you hate?

If yes – what do you hate? Individuals? Groups of people? Food? Music? Societal structures and organizations? Behaviors? Weather? Disease? War? A sports team?

If no – how come? Why not hate?

I have stopped hating. I used to use the word a lot and also felt hatred but…
*shakes my head* it just doesn’t do me any good.

Have become more and more aware of the power the word contains, as well as the feelings and thoughts behind it, so that I very seldom, if ever, feel that hate is the word/emotion I am after.

I have a hard time to see that it serves me to hate. Rather, it creates problems all around.

“Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world,
but has not solved one yet.” – Maya Angelou

So I go for Maya Angelou’s take on hatred, as it sure doesn’t help to make the world a better place. And I strive towards creating a world that works!

The weird thing is, when someone says they hate one thing or the other – if questioned, they almost always back down, saying they don’t really mean hate. So why use the word hate at all?
