Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.


I'm just curious as to why we hate things more than we love them. Is there a reason why humans are more hateful than loving? Does it require more work to love something than it does to hate it? Explain this to me.


Enjoy!!!

It's because you have to put effort into making something that people will love. Whereas any bastard can just start drawing swatikas everywhere and get people pissed at them

Because the negative feelings that come into play when we feel betrayed by something we love.

They can be powerful enough to make one hesitant to submit to those feelings.

I'm more loving than hateful, it takes an awful lot for me to have more than just a mere dislike for something. It doesn't take much to love.

Yes I'm always looking for flaws rather than the postives... just in case

I find the opposite to be true, personally. I've yet to feel anything more negative than a strong dislike and anger, not this mythological "hate." Nothing akin to the long-lasting malice that is often romanticized in fiction.

Sir_Jamesalot taps an issue on the head, regarding the presumption set in the OP.

Not everyone is like that. I can guarantee that there are people out there who are nicer than that.

Just so happens that negativity sticks out more tbh.

It's sorta like that one saying "you can get a million things right, but all it takes is one thing to go wrong for it to come crumbling down".

I'm also reminded of a quote from the monogatari series from kaiki "Humans are born evil".

But honestly i think there's a lot of factors to be considered when speaking of human emotions. Like we can hate things simply because some one else does or some one we don't like, likes this so we hate it, kinda thing.

I think we also happen to be picky and over exaggerate, like lets say there's one thing we don't like about ___ but instead of just not liking it we will hate it.

Human emotions are just so complicated and outrageous.

You're right about that.

Love is something that can take some time to build up and hate can be developed in an instant.
