You can’t defeat hate with hate.No matter how hard you try, how much effort you put behind it, or how much venom with which speak it, hate will never quell hate.We’ve seen it time and time again, we’ve been on the receiving and giving ends. Never once has it resolved a situation or an incident in a calm and constructive way.Only love can defeat hate.“Oh great we’re going down the fluffy road are we? All the peace of hippy love.” But we aren’t, because love isn’t always the easiest thing to accept into our lives. When we do something from a place of love those that started the fight will often recoil when confronted with someone coming from the position of love. They will often realise the error in their ways, because of the feelings of shame and the knowledge that they have acted improperly and poorly towards this.Love does not mean giving in or giving up, loves means expressing your feelings in a constructive, caring and honest way while maintaining your boundaries and your sense of self-worth in all situations.Love always defeats hate when it is used constructively and with care. Always remember to hold yourself to your own standards and do not compromise on those standards for the sake of belittlement or insult.
