Hate


Hate

Our hatred in interpersonal arenas is the outgrowth of an immature tendency that strikes us all when we are stressed or afraid; that is, our penchant to myopically focus on the details of our lives. The aforesaid inclination is the product of an even more insidious problem of being unable to distinguish between what constitutes a detail and what does not. A confusion of this order usually has one of two root causes: either we overvalue, and therefore oppose what is familiar and comfortable for us to that which is familiar and comfortable to another, or, undervalue our emotional deficits and oppose others in order to avoid bearing witness to them. In either case, hatred is the worse manifestation of distraction.
