Easy Loving

They say it’s easy to hate and difficult to love. That’s how the whole scheme of things works. I beg to differ, if I may. Pardon me for it, if you feel. Because I think there’s nothing in this world easier than falling in love. Easier than opening one’s heart. Easier than giving another the power to tear you apart.

Hate, on the other hand, requires so much more effort, thought and time. Frankly, I have none. For you see, I’m so busy loving myself that I can feel enough compassion to give love to everyone I meet. And hate, to be honest, just messes with my vibe.

They say it’s easy to hate and difficult to love. I feel nothing but pity for such poor, tortured souls. For they clearly have never spent a day with their own selves and realised how simple it is to just be. And to love. One’s own self and others.

Hate, on the other hand, is the foremost form of self harm. And it must take so much struggle, deprivation, hopelessness and cowardice to hurt your own self.

So, if you find it easy to hate. I implore you to love yourself. No matter how daunting it may seem to be. I assure you, tis seemingly uphill task is actually a wonderful joyride.

  1. Absolutely agree with you. Hate will eat from the inside, will prevent from seeing the beautiful things and enjoying life. We shouldn’t waste our lives and energy for hate. Thank you very much for your post and following Suitcase Travel blog!

  2. I know what you mean! It’s like I don’t exist if I’m not having positive interactions with people. If I’m not somehow communally involved in something greater than myself. I am them and they are me. I just cannot live in isolation.

    It’s absolutely easier for me to be kind and honest to people than the opposite. And there’s also a part of me that wants to push myself to be even more so, to help to combat more insular/selfish cultural ideas/behaviours.

    I’m always interested in how much of this is genetic and how much environmental. Clearly both are factors. How much can people ‘learn’ to enjoy such shared experiences? My aunt once mentioned to me that my little brother’s girlfriend was ‘teaching him to be more empathetic’. That sentence really caught me off guard, lol, in a few different ways.
