I Don't Like You Man

Alright people, truth of the matter is that not everyone gets along with everyone. Personalities clash, rolled eyes, and opposing viewpoints like head on train collisions.

Let's for a minute differentiate the word 'hate' and 'dislike'. There is a difference. If you hate someone you dislike them in addition to a bundle full of knife stabs and stomped on voodoo dolls, feelings of hostility. Hence, you've heard your mom say 'don't say hate dear its a very very strong word' *shakes forefinger* To 'dislike', you don't like them but you don't want to hurt them, you agree to disagree. Point blank.

Lord knows there are a few people who want to push me off a cliff and I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to drag them with me if it happened. However, I've learned to get rid of feelings of animosity and it may be due to personal selfishness but in a one months time just think would it really matter to me? If you hate someone you are dwelling on issues and wasting precious brain space just focusing on every fiber of their being.


You can do it! The least thing is that you can say you've tried. It takes a lot of energy, a lot of courage but JUST be civil. You can dislike someone but it doesn't mean you can't manage a 'hello' or 'hey how's it goin'. Doesn't mean you can't work with them, doesn't mean you can't help them out when times are hard. Who knows maybe being civil starts a spark and cycle of new born kindness and maybe *gasp* dare I say friendship.................or not.

Anyhoo try your best because in the long run at least you said you've tried.

peace, love, and no regrets!
