It’s the love you try to push away,It’s the punishment for the one who didn’t stay.
It’s a devious little devilish way to only convince us we’re okay,
When really it’s the monster causing all the pain…
Tomorrow is Valentines Day and I’ve been seeing a lot of posts going around tackling the issue of love or romance. I was about to make a post about that myself; when something gave me the idea to write about the opposite: HATE.
When I was little the word HATE was seen as a very strong, sinful word. If one of my friends or the kids in my class would use the word it would be followed by a gasp or scolding.
As I got older the word started losing it’s intensity, and although us adults tend to casually throw the word around, we forget what a strong impact this word can have. Or should I rather say – this action…
When we are in pain or someone does us wrong or life doesn’t go our way we unintentionally build up a lot of hate towards that person or situation. We see hate as a punishment for the person who did us wrong or a defense mechanism against the pain or sadness. We think it’s easier to be angry or that we are hurting someone by hating them when in reality we are simply hurting and punishing ourselves.
If sad is the opposite of happy and hate is the opposite of love then love can make you happy but hate can only make you sad.
Read that again.
So, for this Valentines Day, I am not telling you to love everyone but simply not to hate anyone.
I could go on to tell you more about love but in all honesty I don’t know that much about love. I just know that the lack of it is bad and that the opposite of it is even worse.
Happy Valentines Day! 💖
