Why and When do we hate others ?

Hatred and Insecurity

Do you know that feeling insecure may be the reason that a particular person hates you? In many cases, hatred is the result of perceiving the other person as a threat; think of an employee's hatred of his highly skilled colleague which will usually be the result of feeling that his colleague acts as a threat to his chances of advancement. You can apply this rule to almost all situations where hatred is found; that means that a person hates you because he sees you as a threat to his happiness, to his self confidence, or as a barrier to achieving his ambitions.
Consequently, if someone hates you then this doesn’t mean that you are worthless at all, on the contrary, it means that you have a big impact on this person's life. If that person was confident enough, he would have been sure that you can't affect his sense of well being and so wouldn’t have hated you.

I am Thankful

I am thankful for the wife who says it’s hot dogs tonight because she is home with me and not with someone else.

For the husband who is on the sofa who is being a couch potato because he is home with me and not out at the bars. 

For the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes, because that he or she is at home, not on the streets. 

For the taxes that I pay, because it means that I, am employed. 

For the mess to clean after a party, because it means that I have been surrounded by friends. 

For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.

For my shadow that watches me work, because it means I am in the sunshine.

For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home. 

For all the complaining I hear about the government, because it means that we have freedom of speech. 

For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means 
I am able to walk and that I have been blessed with transportation.

For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.

For the lady behind me in church that sings off key, because it means that 
I can hear. 

For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.

For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means 
I have been capable of working hard.

For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that 
I am alive.

Finally, for too much email, because it means I have friends who are thinking of me.
