Hatred is Infectious
Our inner demons of likes and dislikes
can turn love into hatred.
It is inevitable that we will come across hatred in this world: after all, this is the age of decadence which creates greed for wealth, fame and power. Hatred is the most infectious of all emotions.
As humans, we all have likes and dislikes, but these can easily become intensified when we come into contact with the ideas and actions of others. The most intense emotion is hatred: it is the opposite to love.
Psychology defines hatred as a deep, enduring, intense emotion expressing animosity, anger, and hostility towards a person, group, or object. Because hatred is believed to be long-lasting, many psychologists consider it to be more of an attitude or disposition than a temporary emotional state.
Hate, as a mode of guilt or of pride, generates destructive thoughts. When directed to other people, it represents pride and when directed to oneself, it represents guilt. At a much lesser intensity of denigration, criticisms of other people represent jealousy, whilst criticisms of oneself arise from one’s sense of idealism.
“Hate masks personal insecurities:
Not all insecure people are haters, but all haters are insecure people. Hate elevates the hater above the hated. Haters cannot stop hating without exposing their personal insecurities. Haters can only stop hating when they face their insecurities.”
