Let Go of Hate

Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Nothing epitomizes Dr. King in my mind than the phrase let go of hate.  And right now, especially today, it’s something that I’m really struggling with.  Logically I know that holding on to anger is useless, and holding a grudge is even worse.  It only hurts the person holding on to the anger or holding the grudge. A lot of people think I’m this all the time happy, positive person.  I’m not.  I’m just a regular person who gets moody, and cranky and negative, and today, I’m wallowing in those emotions.

I’m working to let go of hate, let go of anger and not to hold grudges.  Those emotions keep cropping up because life is life, and stuff happens.  I’m trying hard to listen to the words of Dr. King, and I urge everybody else to do so as well. When we hold on to these feelings it only serves to wear us down, and make us miserable.

Let go of hate, and fill your life with love and peace instead.  Remember that those to try and tear you down and make you feel bad.  That’s on them, don’t let it be on you. Let go of hate.
