You ruin yourself when hate is in your heart. Even though the target of your hatred may not even be aware of it, the hatred you harbor within of you eventually kills you. The more hatred you harbor, the more tranquility you lose within.

Hate is irresistible emotion. In my view, seeds of hate are grown in heart of person through comparison, hurting sentiments, betrayal etc. We ca'nt stop to have hate, no matter what.

I agree with this sentence; hence, I always try not to overthink or hold on to anger for long as it can have a huge impact on our social and mental well-being.

I truly agree with everything you just said about hate. It indeed has the power to control a person and makes him do unquestionable things.

Hate is what creates our hell. By letting hate fill our heart we sentence ourselves to hell. So I agree that we must not let hate permeate our hearts.

Inner peace, on the other hand, is heaven. It makes us creative, content and happy. And when someone is truly happy, they can't help but spread it. Thank you for such an valuable lesson.

Hate is a huge driving force. It is just sad that it is negative and never used for good. We should all see therapists to help us through difficult times.

To live with hate is so heart breaking. It tears one from the inside and remives every chance one has of healing.

I appreciate this sentiment. I have always thought that people who are miserable treat other with hate. Perhaps hate is what makes them miserable! I work everyday to treat those around me with love, compassion, and patience. But it’s HARD! However, I believe hate breeds hate, and I seek inner peace, so try on!!

Hate is accompanied with a lot of evil thoughts. Hate hinders us from seeing the light in people. It is a deadly vice suffered by most people in today's world. This is why to trust someone is a very hard thing to do nowadays.

I think to hate is to also kill. Hate make people do things that are very evil and brutal. Once you hate someone, you already killed that person in your heart. Which means that you can never believe anything good will come out from the person.

Basically, this is true. Living with hate is a suicide bomb. One is never truly happy. Wehae to learn to let go and forgive.

I agree with your points. If someone wants to save the world aggressively by using their own principles that may not apply to others or benefit others (not their personal thinking of how others benefit looks like, but what the victims feel), that person surely has deep-rooted misery and lacks spiritual freedom and inner peace.

Hate often stems from seeing a person or group as evil and can lead to a desire for revenge, but it's more constructive to focus on positive emotions like love and compassion. However, I strongly detest the existence of predators who harm others, and my anger is directed towards addressing this situation proactively, aiming to make society safer.

harboring feelings of intense hatred can create a profound sense of inner turmoil and suffering. carrying hatred towards others or situations can consume one's thoughts and emotions, leading to profound distress and agony within oneself. Hatred, as an intense and negative emotion, often brings about feelings of anger, resentment, and bitterness in a person

Hating someone to a point where it consumes you and it's all you think about does sound like hell. It doesn't do anyone good and disrupts one from finding peace. Some people can't help it and the hate may come from a lot of pain that they can't deal with but at some point, they must let go of it so that they can heal and find peace.
