I’m going to write today about something we humans have been cursed with.
You may already know, that hate is not born with us.
It is taught.
It is taught by the ignorance of people who are told they should be scared; scared of things that most times do not exist.
It starts from a young age, when we are most susceptible to learn from those around us what we should hate and what we should not.
At that time, our minds are vulnerable and cannot discern what is right or wrong. We only know what we are told by our guardians.
As we grow into adults, it is difficult to relearn our values, change our old habits, and escape those who have taught us falsely.
This is why we will never truly be rid of hate.
We will never know peace.
Those who learn to hate grow to be hateful and choose a life surrounded by hate and fear and greed. I’ve seen people talk of harming others, not even knowing the people whom they are threatening. They don’t stop to think that the people they are taught to hate are actually living, breathing beings with lives of their own. They have families, and feelings, and their own problems.
The person who hates is more of a danger to anyone in this world, they have become the monster they were told to fear most.
So. If you do happen to read this blog, and all the others coming out now following recent events, please take this into consideration.
Stop wasting your life hating others, and simply live.
Stop looking at people in groups.
Start looking at the individuals and ask yourself, how could that person possibly affect my life in any way?
And ask, how hatred, could bring theirs to an end.
