Love and Hate

By ZulaikaC Dec 04, 2013 557 Words
Love and hate are two powerful and intense emotions that define humankind. Both emotions are independently defined as opposites but are almost compatible in terms of how they make one feel. Love and hate are also dependent emotions, you feel one because of the other. They are like two halves of a whole, one cannot exist without the other. Hate is the absence of love. We love to hate but hate to love.

Love and hate are not as complicated as people make them out to be but they have different levels. You love your family because they have sheltered, raised, and provided for you. You love your friends because they offer social experiences, comfort, and laughter. You then have a lover which is the complicated part but everyone experiences having a lover different. You hate someone because they have physically, emotionally, and mentally hurt you. You can hate someone you do not even know because you see what they are like and you do not like what they do, how they act, or what they say.

Love is wanting the best for people. Love is to show affection from the heart. To love is to give someone something special and not expect anything in return. Love can make you produce a life. Love is what you feel when you find your one and only.

Realistically love is a frightening emotion. Many people are not able to just reach out and grab it. Love makes you feel uncomfortable. Love rocks our thoughts and confuses our emotions. Everyone loves the idea of love or being in love. In movies love means living a happily ever after with the person you choose to spend forever with. Love plays games with your mind and makes you do crazy things that you did not think you were capable of. Love is an emotion you learn to feel and you must work hard to find love within you but work harder to keep it.

Hate is wanting the worst for people. Hate is to show despise or cold heartedness. To hate is to not give anything at all but expect everything in return. Hate can make you take a life away. Hate is what you feel when someone takes away your one and only.

Hate is an angry and hurtful emotion. It is a evil poison that overpowers the world but is a motivation to keep going. With so many hateful people and acts in this world, hate is so familiar. We learn about wars and genocides and realize it happened because of self interest, our history is because of hate. Hate is for the selfish, weak, and close minded people who ignore love. Everyone is so used to being hurt or revenging because of being hurt that hate has become a part of who you are. It gives you this illusion that you are in control of your emotions because you think you understand it.

Love and hate define each other. Without hate there is no love, and without love there is no hate. At one point in your life or another you experience both of these emotions. Everyone experiences these emotions differently but it is true that both emotions change your behavior and make you act irrational. Lovers spread love, haters spread hate. Love is right and hate is wrong.
