RANT: Are you a hater?



I 'm not going to apologize anymore -  Plain and simple, I don't care for our President's personality.  I always think on,  how would I get along with someone like that in real time? Like Obama - nice guy, family man. Maybe we would not agree on everything, but let's face it - he was presidential and just had that statesmen-like attitude. He seemed "approachable". Someone, who could eat at your family's dinner table.

I'm not going to dump on Trump just because I don't care for him. Notice I did not say, I hate him. (Which I hear from too many people these days)  I was always taught, you can't hate someone, you don't know. Granted, I cringe at the way he talks, and acts- but I don't know the man. He does seem like someone I wouldn't want to hang around. And yes, he does bring out those hateful feelings we all have within us - he pushes all those buttons that say, HATE.

So many people HATE these days They throw that word around as much as they throw around, LOVE and PEACE. I get it- those are passionate words. But REALLY, do you hate that much? I sure wouldn't be proud of having that much hate within me.

As I get older, I am working hard at, trying not to "hate" people; like I have in the past.  It doesn't feel good to me, to get that passionate about some person I don't even know. While there will always be people I do not care for, I have decided it's not worth it to me, and my serenity to be an active hater. I'm not "there" yet, but I am working on it and if I have anyone to thank, it would be the President and his haters for making me more aware of how I do not want to be.

  2. I agree with you on the way people throw around words like hate and love. I love my hubby. I love pizza. Do I love pizza more than my spouse? I hate traffic. I hate evil. Do I hate traffic more than evil? I have good reason to "hate" someone right now for actions inflicted against those I love, but I'm choosing (trying to most of the time) to have compassion instead (and lots of prayer).

  3. He is not even worth the energy it takes to dislike him, let alone hate him.

  4. I've often thought about this. Seems like people hate a lot these days. I try not to hate anything or anyone. Hatred takes up too much time and energy which I could use in doing something good instead.

    1. You are right and that is why I am trying the check myself. Life is too short to hate this and hate that. All we can do is keep trying to not spread so much hate. There is enough of it in its own right.

  6. I have been asking myself if hate is really the right word to use for the feelings we have towards this President. I don't like him. Not one bit. There are a lot of things I hate. I recently looked up the word 'hate' to see how it was being used. It only means a passionate dislike. And I am afraid that I have a passionate dislike for the man. Maybe that sounds better than the word hate. But it means the same thing. (And I think it is okay to passionately dislike someone we don't personally know)!
