I know it's a strong word

Nope, I do not hate anyone. There are many people I dislike, but never hate.

Hate is a very strong word. Even I use the word, not really thinking on, or realizing what it actually means. I cannot bring myself to literally hate anyone. I try to think of ways that I could but there is always that feeling of empathy, or trying to put myself into their shoes. And I also think about how I may not be the most liked person either. The word "Hate" is just too powerful for me to use, though I do through habit.

Very true, the word Love is just as, if not more powerful than the word Hate, and we grow into habit of saying them and not really meaning them.

I agree. They are both powerfull emotions and love has been diluted while hate has been maligned.

It's only natural to hate someone who abused you. You gotta work through the anger by expressing it. That's the only way to heal. I know from sex abuse I went through. Some stuff just sucks.

I agree with Miranda. I often use it out of habit but mostly the people I 'hate' are just people I cannot stand, but when I try to put myself in their situation (if I know what it is) I usually end up feeling bad for them. I don't think that I really hate anyone, but some people I dislike more than others.

I don't genuinely hate someone, but I believe I dislike people when they violate my personal morals. I have hated people before, and it wasn't good for me to do so, because I felt bitter toward other things as well.

Yeah, I hate some people just for a few days but I normally get over it in a week or so

I strongly dislike a lot of people but I do not think that I actually hate anybody. Ip hate arrogant people and people who think... I don't know, I just hate arrogant people but anybody in particular.

Hate to me is a strong word based by very strong emotions, obviously backed up by a traumatic or painful experiance. Hateful thoughts and feelings arent wrong, but acting upon them is.
