Stop Hating

This Sparked Me!

Hate is an energy vampire. It accomplishes nothing, wastes time, and makes you unattractive. I have a Facebook friend who post something hateful about a politician everyday and then she wonders why she's losing friends. Politics aside..she's just no fun.

    Same here, I had to hide somethings on FB because of that. Hate sure uses up all the positive energy.

    I hide or remove any and all FB contacts who insist of bringing gossip, negativity, and hateful comments about people to my page.

    To say "I hate.....", whether its in those words or in an acid stream of abuse, also gives importance where its not due.It lifts the common place object ,that is not worth the strength of that emotion, to a place of importance it does not deserve. Used often, it makes the person who says it small minded and bitter. As in this case, it drives people away. Its much better to be positive and try to find something good about all aspects of life if we can emoticon

    I have a friend like that as well who is SO inflammatory and aggressive in his posts that I finally "hid" him so that I didn't have to read that garbage on my newsfeed every single day.
