Flawed Relationships

“It is hard to love,
but it is harder not to hate;
this is how the world turns.

Good manners are hard to get,
but the bad ones,
are even harder—to get rid of!”

“It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve and bad things are easy to get. By: Confucius

“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
