I refuse to hate anyone. I am not saying I have always been this way...I have not. I have had some people do some pretty nasty things to me throughout my life. However, hate is a consuming entity which will destroy the person who wields it. Better to not hate and live life well. cheers,

Thanks for the response. Even I like and love all my friends and relatives and never expect to get back the love and affection from them in return. These expectations will create all the problems. So dont expect the love and affection from others. You love others, your part is over . Dont expect anything. This is what I believe

I must say that there is somebody whom I'll hate for rest of my life. I can never forgive him whatever be the situation. I hate him from the core of my heart. I am not saying that he is the only person who has done something very bad with me. There are few people who have cheated me in different ways. But How he broke my trust is awesome. I thought him to be my best friend, he was so dear to me. Recently he has accused me of bad thing such falsely and so mean he is, I can never forgive him in life.

Dear Subha, Even I have the same experience. I am not in a position either to forgive or forget.So as you put it , 'I hate him the core of my heart'. You must have gone through entire discussions. From their point of view, they are correct. But they doesnt know the intensity of the pain or the pain from the insult, which we are undergoing. But my advice to you is try to forget the events. That is the only way. We should not think about the incidents and individuals. Avoid them maximam

Hello there mdvarghese! Well to use the word “hate” someone must have done something that is very bad fron your perspective! I will admit that I have been through a lot and many times people have betrayed me in this life time but the use the word hate? I really can’t do that! I can say that I dislike them or lost the respect I once held for them but to say that I hate them, no I can never use that word (period!) Yes, I have a hard time forgiving anyone who has betrayed me but ultimately I do! Although it may take time, I still do end up forgiving them. I grew up with the belief that the lord forgives us for all our sins, and I am not about to rise above him by denying anyone the right for forgives! I fell that if I am unable to forgive a person for their mistakes, then that doesn’t make me any better than they are. Then again this is what I strongly believe in, I am not in any way doubting your beliefs or judging the choices that you make, because the fact is we each different in our own ways and this response that I am making is sole’ based on my opinions! Have a great day!
