    Hate is a strong word; Can a person truly hate one they once loved? Is hate not pain all it's own?

    Absolutely... you can't hate someone you haven't loved. The two emotions are opposite ends of the pendulum... each one is just as strong and passionate as the other. The depth of both emotions is the black hole of bliss or despair, respectively.

    I think hate is a strong word, and I think that it involves the same kind of emotions. You have to care for that person to let them take control of your emotions to let you feel that way. Often when people are consumed with their hate for a person, it is just reflecting the hurt they are feeling inside, otherwise they wouldn't think about it so much.

    I think someone can hate someone they once loved, and actually I think it is the ones we loved before that we can say we HATE! Otherwise, I think they just may annoy us, or bother us. But it's those that have disappointed us, or showed us a side we didn't know and therefore we take it to the complete opposite of emotions to help us reason why they did the things they did, and help us cope. Not in a healthy way, I might add.

    There is a thin line between love and hate.....depends on what the person did to make you hate him/her I guess.

    God has gifted most women the capacity to hate the same person to the same extent of their earlier love on them. Funny still, a woman is capable of hating her man in the evening whom she loved so passionately in the morning. The converse is also true. A woman can love the person whom she hated to the core, if her mind swings to the other extreme.

    I think I can say with all honesty that I hate no one.   This is not to pat myself on the back.  I have not experienced at first hand the absolute calousness or deliberate cruelty that some others have, for example.   Imagine Prisoners of War on the Siam-Burma railway in WW2.   They had every reason to hate.   

    I suspect the bad feelings which are evoked by people who have 'loved and lost' come more from pain than hate.   Sorrow can be masked by hatred.   And hatred is simply a mask for fear.   Something has been taken away and will probably never be replaced, and the ego has to blame someone for this.  Or else face the terrible truth that it, itself, was the cause.

    "hate" and " love"........
    they are both shortcuts and overused.

    It costs the soul to do  either.

    Hate-1, to have a strong dislike towards or for. 2, to wish to avoid. Keep these definitions in mind. Assume someone makes you really angry. You could talk to that person or avoid them. If you are avoiding that person. In a way you hate them. Another way that hate is applied is when trust is lost. When you feel ruined or hurt by someone that is in a way hate. You no longer like the individual or trust them. This leads to the neglect and avoidance of that person. Now love is understood to be a strong affection for a person. Strong meaning durable. Affection meaning liking of.

    If a person no longer trust you. Right there you have already destroyed the love by taking away the liking. People like those they can trust. Those they trust, they like. By losing an individuals liking of you that strong aspect of love is reversed. It now becomes a strong dislike or ill towards. For this reason the saying, "Between love and hate there is a fine line". Is completely true. Hate can lead to pain. Hate is simply the reversing of the liking of an individual.

    Love and hate are closely tied. Very strong emotions! think when you hate it is not over in heart yet and, maybe it never will be. I think indifference is the opposite of love and when you have reached that point you know you are finished with them.
