"Is Hate Ever Good?"
I have always thought that hating is like drinking rat poison and hoping the rat dies of it.
Doesn't the world seem to be drowning in a sea of hate sometimes?
Hate closes the curtains of the heart and mind, darkening the soul.
But can hate ever be a good thing?
Perhaps in terms of motivation ...
I hate to hurt others, so I practice compassion.
I hate to look in the mirror and see I have let myself go, so I exercise and eat less.
I hate grouchy people, so I strive not to be a grouch myself.
Swallowing Your Hate
Leads to Indigestion of the Soul
Some mothers unwisely scold their children for expressing anger.
Anger is a normal response to frustration.
It is how we deal with hate and anger that makes all the difference in the world.
Unresolved anger turns inward,
and you see the consequences in the hopeless eyes of the depressed in this world.
Forgiving yourself leads to forgiving others ...
and that leads to less sparks with those around you.
Hate can be a powerful motivator or a destructive force.
It all depends on how we deal with it.
