The Origins of Hatred

We’ve all felt hatred in our lives. It’s normal to feel hate towards things sometimes, but the moment hatred takes control of your emotions, your life will become harsh and difficult.

But where does hatred come from? Why do we say we hate someone? Why?

Hatred was the core subject in my book, The Battle of the Broken Mind. I explored the meaning of hatred, the way it controls people, and the reason for its appearance within people’s lives.

In my book, Hatred is depicted as a tall skeleton, dressed in a suit, and having two horns growing from his forehead.

I’m not going to spoil the story, but if you want to learn more, check out my book.

In my book, Hatred is the final foe Ava has to face. He uses memories of sadness and fear in order to grow in power. Hatred’s entire existence is supported by fears and grief. They are his life source, his power. Without fear of sadness, Hatred becomes nothing, for he can only have power if the person he’s controlling is afraid and drowning in sadness.

So, what we can learn from my book is that Hatred uses our memories of sadness and fears to grow in power. Think about it. It actually makes sense.

If we’ve felt betrayed by others, if our memories are filled with traumatic experiences in social interactions, we naturally start being wary of that kind of situations. We might distance ourselves in order to “protect” ourselves. This is what our “EGO” does and by EGO, I mean the psychological term.

Because of our sadness and fear of rejection and bullying, for example, we start seeing social situations as dangerous. But we still have that desire to have friends, to have relationships and so on, but we just can’t get to those because of our fear.

This frustration turns into anger as we see others achieving what we desire the most. The people who once bullied us can walk by with a group of friends surrounding them and what does this make us feel? Hate.

We grow jealous, we start calling people names, and as this goes by, our hatred towards others grows.

We don’t really hate others. We don’t hate those who have friends and lovers. We don’t really hate them. We just feel jealous, seeing our lives through our fears and sad memories, thus, feeling powerless. We feel like we have been wronged and naturally, we get angry about that.

What I’m trying to say here is that if you feel hate towards others, take a moment to think about the real reasons.

What have those who have friends and connections really done to you? If they didn’t bully you, why would they deserve your hate?

As I said before, the reason for our hate is the immense sadness we feel inside. Fear makes us freeze and because we’re frozen, we can’t act in order to achieve the life we desire and this makes us angry.

In my book, Hatred uses memories to gain the upper hand in the battle against his victims. He can show you the wrongs people have done to you which in turn makes you furious. And as long as you act as Hatred wants you to act, you will lose the battle.

But there’s a way out of this, trust me.

In order to defeat Hatred, we first need to deal with our fears and griefs.

What are we afraid of? Why are we afraid of them? Why are we sad? What memories do we keep within us that poison us from the inside?

After clearing out these things, we can move over them and leave them behind. This is a vital step towards happiness.

Remember, Hatred is powerless without fear and sadness to feed him. Without them, Hatred has no reason to make you hate.

This is the way I’ve studied hatred. It is a great foe indeed, but it too can fall if your desire for freedom is strong enough.

Hopefully, you found this post interesting and remember that you can always learn more about my view of hatred by reading my book.
