Consumating's Question of the Week

Why do your friends like you, and why do your enemies hate you?

Apparently, the reasons why my friends like me and my enemies hate me are the same.

I say what I mean and I tell the truth. I stand up for what I believe is right, even if it means standing up alone or against my friends. I think about the things I do or have done and am constantly reevaluating my ideas, goals, relationships, principles, etc. I hide nothing from anyone. I love, not in hopes of reciprocation, but because I think there's something special in everyone. There is no place for hate in my heart.

I'm not out to win people over anymore. I am what I am and that's all that I am.

There is always room for a little hate =)

Hating people is just a waste of your time. To completely ignore ones existence is more punishing then to think about that person and how much you dislike them. There are things though in life that are worth hating. Like the president. You always have to face the fact that he is in office so to think about how much you dislike him is probably a good thing, motivation to vote, and motivation to speak out against him.

Well, I agree, if you have tendencies to obsess over things; I rarely care about anyone enough to think about them hate or like more than a couple of hours.

Hating your president, while being important, can also be destructive. I hate Bush, but if I think about it to much I get all worked up and then can't manage to do anything. So I pretty much have to forget it as much as possible.

You look exactly like my first girlfriend, except you are a about 8 years younger it seemed like you had that who I-don't-like-boys-thing, but you have a husband who you are beneath? Maybe I misunderstood that post on your journal. I think marriage is a wonderful thing; if you are even and equal partners.

No when I said I was beneath no one except my husband i meant that in sexual terms. I like to see people question it though. It makes me happy to see so many people who think I am an equal.
I too get worked up about our government and what bush has done to our country. But if I think about it it reminds me that its important for me to speak up about it and not ignore the fact that my daughter will grow up in a country in debt and chaos. It reminds me to do something with my life even if its only educating or debating a couple people a week. I know I am at least making a difference in someones life.
