Lessons Learned: Don’t hate, be Proud
Hate is probably a word used more than it’s actually a feeling felt. A small revelation happened to me the other day and I can’t get it out of my head. Here’s my lessoned learned by it.
First of all; hate takes a lot of energy. Hate is like love, and it will consume you. Personally I realized this when I was about 17 years old, and had this strong hateful feelings towards a large amount of things, but also this Love/hate relationship to a guy, or rather I hated him, talked about it a lot, to realize I was probably in love with him and therefor hated him when he wanted to use me to hit on my girl friends. Go me.
I have a lot of insight to myself, and thanks to years of therapy I’ve learned a lot about how my mind works. Eventually I figured out how negative it was for me to spend energy and feelings on hating someone or something.
This week has been Stockholm Pride, a week that should be filled of acceptance, love and pride! Yet we see hate, both from outside forces, and within the community itself. You might not think much of it when you say “I hate
I still do it, but I know I don’t feel hatred towards anything. My aim is to stop saying I hate, since I don’t.
Let’s stop hate, in it’s entirety. It is okay to not like or approve of someone else or their opinion, but don’t waste your own life hating something when you can spend that energy on loving things you do and people around you.
