I'm like you. Even though I know it's wrong to hate, I have 3 people that I do hate and no matter how much I try to forgive them, I just can't.

Hate is a strong word that I don't like to use.There is one person I have an intense dislike for and that is my father.He murdered my mother 21 years ago,and I refuse to have anything to do with him!

OMG! That is awful!!! How do you keep yourself from hating him? I really admire you for not doing so. It is really understandable that you won't have anything to do with him.

I'll admit I hated him for a very long time.In the end I had to stop the hate because it was affecting me badly.I have nothing to do with him,infact I live in another country (moved with ex husband and stayed)

I greatly admire you for having been through such and awful experience and being able to feel as you do. I just can't even begin to imagine the pain this man must have put you through. You have my utmost respect.

yes,when I was a child.I sometime hate someone.for he or she dislike me or say me something in my back. sometimes I will hate parents when they aren't agree with me.and so on .but I will forget it when I realized that I am wrong or I shoudn't hate them soon. maybe,after a night of sleep. now,I am grown-up.I can't hate anyone without the rule question.to hate soneone is not a good thing.It is not good for you.

I agree that hating is very bad for you, but sometimes things happen that it's really hard not to.

hate - hate
I wish I could say no because HATRED is seriously such a waste of energy and takes more effort than to learn tolerance. But I will confess I have hated... although not often. I went through a period where I hated my exhusband but now I pity him because he lost a wonderful opportunity at life with 3 beautiful kids and a happy family. I also hated a man who stalked my daughter when she was about 7 or 8 years old and he was in his 50's. That one I still have resentment towards, for not only scaring her but making her live in fear for a while but I don't think HATRED would be the word still.

OMG! How could a 50 year old man stalk a child like that. I know hate is an awful thing but I would have trouble not hating someone like that as well.

Hate is a strong word. I disliked my father for years. He left when I was five and I never saw him again. I still have bad feelings towards him, but I've forgiven him.

I actually had to look and see what state you were from. I thought you might be my daughter. Her father left when she was 5 and we've never seen him again either. That sounded exactly what she would say.

I don't know what you have become, but you must stop this self hate. You've got to learn to love yourself. Once you do this you can and will turn your life around.

yes. My step-daughters bio mom. I don't think I'll ever like her. I tried and tried and my step-daughter has seen me try. I just don't feel she's worth my time anymore.

Hate is a very strong word, but yes I have disliked someone, and for how long depends on whether I wish them to be in my life anymore or not!
