HATE, although it is a strong word is a sign of weakness. The same is true of anger and frustration. I am not fan of negativity but I think it is important that you know them so you can identify them.
Let take a look at the positive accomplishments of hate. ____ Well, that was short, wasn’t it? So now you should realize that hate will not let you accomplish anything, right?
Why is someone weak if they are angered or frustrated? It is because they do not have an answer to satisfy themselves. Many times it is because they are looking in the wrong area or they have the wrong map.
Take for example drug addiction. There are many good people addicted to mind numbing narcotics. Why? Because they are looking in the wrong place for satisfactory answers.
Keep this is mind my sons, people WILL destroy themselves to find an answer that is standing right in front of their face. Why, you may ask? Because the answer is less important than the question. Let me explain this can of worms.
Consider a “premise”, this is a foundation on which an argument is based. You begin to build your linguistic arrangements based upon a premise. However, if the premise is flawed it will begin to break down at some point in time. This leads me into another thing called “flow” which I will teach you about later.
So, if the premise of the question is flawed the answer will be worse. To support a flawed premise will lead to insanity and possibly horrible answers to questions that should of never been asked.
This is why we see drug addicts make one bad decision after another. This is why a “liar” and a “thief” are grouped together. Flawed premises act like black holes and once you give your mind over to those types of things it is very difficult and may be nearly impossible to escape.
Addicts think that because they are in pain they always need a drug to numb it. In reality pain is good and it is awesome to feel pain and discomfort. How would we know not to touch fire, jump off a cliff, or wrestle a wild Grizzly bear?
Learn to love your pain, it is a teacher like no other so let it speak to you. If it is not debilitating, value the God given pain that saves lives every day.
The opposite of HATE is LOVE and it is an amazing word. I think LOVE is way more powerful than hate ever will be.
You shouldn’t give circumstances the power to rouse anger, for they don’t care at all. — Marcus Aurelius
How much better to heal than seek revenge from injury. Vengeance wastes a lot of time and exposes you to many more injuries than the first that sparked it. Anger always outlasts hurt. Best to take the opposite course. — Seneca
