is a word I do not like my children to use. The word “hate” makes me cringe. It’s a word I almost always regret saying and try hard not to use. The word “hate” makes me angry, makes me sad, makes me feel like there is no hope. Maybe it’s because the word “hate” means that something is so intensely disliked that there no good in it.
There is always good. There is always another way to look at something. There is always hope. So in this world that sometimes makes you want to “hate”, take that intense passionate dislike of something and force yourself to “love” something just as passionately. Do not focus on what you hate. Focus on what you love. Love your children, love your spouse, love your family and your friends. Love life. Tell me about something that you love.
