For quite sometime now, I'm thinking, can true love overcome hate? People love you because they see your good side, and hate you when you do them something wrong. yeah it's true. most of people nowadays are sort of judgemental, because foe the simle reason that we are weak in emotions and we are just human with flaws. But, what 'm really asking and pointng out is that how about when you're in a relationship? will it really apply? even if the offenses of the person who have done you wrong is serious? are you still wiling to forgive though nt really forget because that person means so much to you? i need yur answer.. please comment and.. reflect on this. It's just the situaton i'm in. thanks.

Sometimes LOVE is far way stronger than the actual feeling of hatred. Love can actually mask that feeling simply because LOVE on its own is far greater than that negative feeling. Meaning LOVE is winning rather than hatred. If Love is strong it could be enough to cover up the bad things your partner has done to you. We might have underestimated the power of love and never realize what it could to us. But it trully magical that even the most painful feeling can be covered up because of love.

As I've said if LOVE is greater than that then it will cover it up. I mean if you love the person so much that you are willing to accept her even after all that happened then the intensity of your love for her is far greater than the cheating itself. Personally I don't believe that you are not aware of what's going on with you when you're drunk. That has always been a woman's excuse. Don't get me wrong. I'm a woman but I got drunk several times already and there's never a time that I didn't know what is going on with me. So I think that is just an excuse. I'm sorry friend.

Love can really overcome hate. Love and hate for me is the strongest emotion a person can feel. It can be both happy and sad. It can be dangerous at times too. But no matter how much we hate a person we can always see the good side which overcomes hate in our hearts. I had a relationship before that didn't end nicely. She was physically and verbally abusive but I stuck with her. She had another girl aside from me I found that out and we parted ways. It was very ugly and I hated her for that. For so many years I didn't go to places where we used to go...do things that we used to do. In short, I erased every wonderful memory we had and replaced it with hate. Nothing else but hate. However, time came and we crossed paths. The moment she asked for forgiveness...every hate that I had for her melted. I loved her as a friend would and I forgave her. We're good friends now.

True, love makes the world happy and love is unconditional , if not it isnt love.

Between love and hate is a very thin line, people usually hate someone they felt great affection to.

ya sometimes you are wronged but at he same time you know that the person who have wronged you mean a lot to you. so at those times you should indeed forgive because you love that person and you loved because of something that you know are there with that person. even if you are misled at that time... when you loved that person... you can try forgiving and loving more. well there is a saying that you cannot substitute hatred with love.
