How many innumerable times have you just shouted out "I HATE YOU!" and walked off. Most of the times it's said to someone you love deeply and pretty rarely to people you dislike, but well, most of us have got the meaning all jumbled up! Say I Hate You, throw a tantrum, and WHAM! everything will be okay. Or a mere disagreement with someone prompts us to put the other person in the hate category!
I personally put just one person in that category. Just one, and after a research and fool-proof loathing of 5 years. Nobody else. But well, what really defines the hate category?
I'll give a few pointers, and as of course you're welcome to give in your two paisa (no cents :P).
1. He/She should have done something which should have had a DEEP impact on your life. mind you, DEEP.
2. It must have affected you in a life changing manner. Nerve wrecking manner.
3. If not you, some cause that you support with your life.
4. The loathing should come from within without any force..and it should be PURE loathing. The drive-you-to-craziness one.
Before saying those magical three words, Stop, rewind your mind, ask yourself, do you really mean it? Or are you saying it coz it's the latest fad? When you can take a lifetime to say those
three words (I love you), why not pop in a second or two for these ones?
These have a more powerful impact, mind you. You cut off someone from your life just because you couldn't control your moment of madness.
Stop and Listen to your heart then :)
