Hate is a funny word. It’s often used out of context. Regardless of definition, hate is a deep seeded, emotional state. Hate usually is based on an inability to cope and strive for better; it’s an easy way out. Hate in it’s pure and true form is atune to a mental disability. It’s negative affect gone haywire. It’s an emotional affect breaching into cognitive reality. Thus, hate should be reserved for these intense and overwhelming mental states.
When hate is applied to dislike or misunderstanding it’s showing a mental laziness. To use any extreme adjective to describe your feelings is to be lazy with your expression. I cannot judge the use of this “hate” usage, but I can use it as a psychological lesson. Next time you choose “hate” to describe something there are two things to think of first:
1. Is this appropriate in accuracy to my true feelings?
2. Can I find a way to not feel this way? Can I not be a slave to my negative affect? Can I love what I hate? If you can love what you hate, then you are enlightened and will feel negative affect never again.
These ideas can be employed with rational thinking. If you drop your ego, address context, and think of your feelings as part of your goodness in humanity, then you can see where your “hate” lies. Whether you’re turmoiled or content, hate is a burden in your way to glorious positive thinking. Logically, there is no reason to hate anything; let alone feel anything is negative. Life is beautiful and it deserves your loving and kind observance. Likewise, it deserves yours. If you look, then you’ll see it deserves you too.
