A Library of Hate
How to deal, forgive and thrive
The question is whether hate is bad for you. Does hate eat away at the better angel's wings atop your shoulder?
How you approach hatred in your life will impact the way you see the world. There are people who see a black and white world. There are those that see all shades of gray and even those people that see no lines whatsoever.
You do not have to believe in evil or darkness to hold on to hate. We hate people for all sorts of reasons. Take a look at the people in your life. Since you are reading this article I am going to assume you have at least one name on ye olde list that you hate. What have they done to you to deserve being hated?
Up until now, how have you dealt with the feelings towards those people?
Take some time and really consider how hate has damaged your life. Write your feelings down, talk about them (my dog only listens if I have treats) and see where that journey takes you.
One of the biggest lessons I can share with you in the hopes of improving your life is that you do not, ever, need to beat yourself up because you are not emotionally where you would like to be.
Let it go and do not worry if that takes time; even years.
1. Is your emotional reaction fair? Then do not feel guilty
2. Do your feelings motivate or encumber you?
3. What good can come from feeling hatred?
4. Do you love more than you hate?
If you are not in a place to release your feelings take that energy and redirect it towards accomplishing something positive in your life. When you feel like giving up on a goal remind your heart of its motivation.
When the time comes to get rid of that hate book from your personal library give yourself time to emotionally come to terms with letting go. To come to terms with the new you. How will you change when hate is released?
