    Why do we hate others?

    We hate others because we don't have enough confidence in ourselves. In those moments when we have complete confidence in ourselves we don't care what others are doing.

    Hate typically evolves from love or money. If you believe in yourself those feelings fade, becoming unimportant as who you really are begins to show.

    I find it easy to hate everyone that I come in contact with because I will never be as good as them. And thats how a lot of people think. I have a hard time trying to please others but  most of the time I do. If I knew you and you knew me, you would think that Im the happiest guy in the world but then again thats me trying to please everyone. So... I really dont hate anyone but some times it is hard not to.Easy? well...."love thy neighbor" has gotta be one of the hardest things to do.

    Mostly we are jealous, they have what we want and don’t have. They may be different, smell funny, be tall or short,  or even talk with an accent. We judge others without knowing what they may be going through  or have gone through. I am sure there are some things that we would never want to go through. I am so glad God is real. He knows all about us and He loves us no matter what.  He helps us even though we don’t deserve His help because that is the  AWESOME GOD HE IS!

    If I could quote the great Master Yoda please, "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."

    So I'm too logical for this question... not to sound big-egoed because, let's face it, we know these things already.
    Emotions developed over a lot period of time for the benefit of survival. We become happy when we're doing something pleasurable to the senses and we become sad because something has occurred that we wish hadn't.

    Anger is more of a defense mechanism though, protecting ourselves from others' resentfully selfish tactics that would have, many generations ago, probably resulted with our starving or failing to procreate.

    We hate because we were angered by someone. If they did something bad enough to make you angry, then the immediate reaction is to be resentful.

    It's not so difficult when put into context smile

    Its a feeling you get when others don't act according to the way you expect them to.When you don't keep any expectations,you can gradually wade away these word called 'HATE' from your dictionary.

    Because we are selfish and don't think about reasons why other people think or act differently than ourself.

    When a person hates another, it is either meaning that person had done something wrong to him/her or it is a sense of jealousy for not getting what the other person can have.

    It is better to give love instead of feeling hatred as it will be good to yourself in terms of Karma & Merits. We should learn to let go of hatred and giving love instead. You will feel much better with that.

    Are you including yourself?
    You did say "we". hmm
    We hate because we don't understand, don't care to find out more. It's just easier to hate, instead of love and try to get to know. That takes time and effort.
    Who's got time,and who wants to make an effort? In this fast paced world? Are you kidding.
    Sad, but true!  sad

    Human nature causes us to do do terrible things. Plus, human nature is violent. Hating others is no surprise. The carnal mind does weird things.
