Love Versus Hate

When people’s minds are led by love,
The truths they believe come as a dove.

When people’s minds are led by hate,
The lies they believe will seal their fate.

We must seek, for love to be real,
If we don’t, our hearts won’t heal.

“When you start understanding the science and psychology of hate, you begin to realize that there are numerous complex reasons for your hatred towards people. In an ideal world, we would love and respect everyone we interact with. Everyone will be compassionate, emphatic, generous, considerate and kind. We will accept each other’s views no matter how opposing they may be to ours and would learn from different perspectives. But reality is far from ideal. And this is perhaps why we often get upset, angry and annoyed with others.”

Excerpt from 5 Reasons Why You Hate People According To Psychology

Commentary: Interesting, love and hate are complex emotions, yet similar in that both are intimate and are only shared with the object of your affection or indignation. However, they are also on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to changing a life for good or evil. For example, you can start by loving someone and end up hating that person, due to a breakup or betrayal. Ironically, both can incapacitate the giver or the receiver if executed correctly.

“In every encounter, we either give life or we drain it; there is no neutral exchange.” By: Brennan Manning, 2008
