I’ve written about this before, but the one thing that makes me the saddest in life is hate. Hearing or seeing people say they hate someone is like a dagger to my heart. Hate has caused so much trouble in our world, and I wonder where we would be if, instead of hating one another, we tried to understand one another, or, at the very least, were willing to meet in the middle.
I’m certainly not saying we have to agree with one another, but to hate someone because they disagree with you doesn’t make sense. People are entitled to their views, and as much as you may despise those views, hating the person isn’t the answer.
I can honestly say there’s no one in this world that I hate. There are plenty of people I disagree with, but that’s part of life. I have friends who have different political and religious views than I do. They remain my friends. They aren’t bad people because they disagree with me anymore than I’m a bad person for disagreeing with them. If only the world could see this…
