    When is it okay to hate?

    When is an appropriate time to express the other side of the fine line?

    I think it's ok to hate someone if they purposely do something to seriously hurt another person, whether physically or emotionally. I feel it's ok to hate people such as murderers, rapists, paedophiles...people who do things that are not forgiveable.

    Now I've written the above paragraph and thought about it more, I've realised it's not that simple. For example, some paedophiles were victims of sexual abuse's tough, there isn't an easy answer.

    I generally don't like to hate people (seriously dislike is another matter), but I understand there are some extreme cases, such as the ones sasanqua mentioned. In that case, I think we are only human, and hate would be a natural emotion. We can't hold it against people to feel that way when they have been victims of some horrific crime. Even so, in the long term I think the aim is to resolve these feelings of hate and accept it and/or move on. We could go on feeling hatred for the rest of our lives about something, but that wouldn't be okay because the only one we'd be hurting significantly is ourselves. So think of it that way - resolve any feelings of hatred for the sake of your own emotional well-being, not for anyone else's.

    if someone hurts you on purpose, hate them. if someone uses their power to mess with others , hate them. hatred is a good thing as long as there is a good reason for it. it gives you the strength to stand up for yourself and to help keep you more watchful over how other people treat you.

    Hate comes with the territory especially if it lies behind reasons that can be condoned and that are not selfishly driven or immature.   Random, immature I need to have my way or I hate you just because I hate myself "hate" is not acceptable!  More than likely to express yourself in this fashion will warp and destroy your sense of expression and when it comes to you being emotionally balanced.

    In regards to what Samantha has said about hurting one self.  Responsibility comes with the territory when concerning your actions and motives and if one chooses to hate and it is condonable I see nothing wrong with that.  You can hate someone or their actions and move on with your life without constantly reverting to your feelings.  Just remove yourself from their existance and then you have nothing to worry about.  It is destructive for one to hate when their is no logic, reason or merit behind their reason.  The same way Love exist so does hate.  There is no way you can hurt yourself when you are protecting and safeguarding yourself, family and interests.
