If your kids are constantly saying “I hate…” you’ve done something horribly wrong.

It’s sad, it’s pathetic and it’s incomprehensible. To me, anyway. I don’t understand why anyone would want to raise children in constant negative. Personally, I’ve chosen to remove those kinds of people from my life.

Take a step back and try to look at your life and your actions from the perspective of someone else. What do you see? Do you see someone with a ready smile and kind words? Do you see someone who helps others without expecting something in return? Someone who doesn’t have to brag about their good deeds to anyone who will listen? Someone who lifts others up in positive light? This is someone worth knowing.

…or do you see misery? A person who is constantly going out of their way to find something wrong with everything and everyone? Someone who repeats themselves over and over again to try to get their point across while actually dumbing themselves down every time? A person who blatantly says, “I hate …” no matter what it is, even if it doesn’t make sense? Are you someone who is constantly talking about others behind their backs? No one wants to be close to this person.

Hate is a very strong word. One you will rarely hear uttered from my lips. I’ve had my fair share of hard times, shitty people and tough situations but honestly, I can’t say I have ever “hated” anyone. Maybe I’m just not wired that way, maybe I have more understanding of things and people, I don’t know.

What I do know is this. No one wants to spend a lot of time with negative, spiteful, hateful people. If you’re creating more of this type of people, please do what I said and take a step back. Really look and listen to yourself and the people you are influencing. It’s never too late to make a positive change. Never.
