HomeSelf Relationship QuestionsHow do I stop hating other people?
Rila Thomas Staff asked 5 months ago
I know that hate is a strong word, but I can't think of any other way to describe how I feel about certain people in my life. I hate my boss, I hate my ex-boyfriend, and I even hate some of my family members. I try not to let it bother me, but it's really starting to affect my mental health. How can I stop feeling this way?

Hate is a very strong and negative emotion, so it's understandable that you want to find a way to stop feeling it. The first step is to try to understand where your hate is coming from. What is it about these people that you dislike so much? Once you have identified the root of the problem, you can start to work on finding a solution. If the source of your hate is something that can't be changed, like a family member, then try to focus on finding ways to cope with and manage your feelings. There are many helpful books and articles on this topic. Seek out resources that can help you learn how to deal with your emotions in a healthy way.
