Hate is self-inflicted torture,
It hungers for revenge,
damage, division, and
violence, but it is never satiated.

Hate is a psychological hell to
which we condemn ourselves
and endeavor to burn others.
--Steve Maraboli


Hate is defined as an intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury. 

We are the creators of our emotions and fully responsible for how we feel and how we react. 

Most people will take a look at things when they find themselves severely reacting to a situation. They question their current emotional state and endeavor to identify what button was pushed so they can work on it. They want to know what caused them to react in an unacceptable manner. These people are accepting responsibility for their emotions.

On the other hand, there are people that have no interest whatsoever in figuring out why they do anything. They react however the spirit moves them, with absolutely no regard for others. They have no concern about how they are perceived and will always find someone else to blame. They think they are entitled to take out their rage on whoever is in their path. The pent-up anger appears to be too great to control.

Hate is unfamiliar emotion for most.... there may be something said that makes you angry or upsets you, but to retaliate with hate is not normally the go-to response. If someone has feelings of such intensity, looking for revenge for any real or imagined snub seems a difficult way to live a life. Taking ownership and responsibility for yourself, and your emotions is the first step, don't let the anger fester until it manifests into illness. Give yourself some peace. You can choose to free yourself from anything.
