When you think of a hateful person, what do you think of? Someone with biting sarcasm and so much nastiest about then that they’re a human repellent? I’ve known people like that- so mean spirited it’s a wonder they could stand themselves.

Then again, maybe they couldn’t and that why they’re so mean.

When I learned this I immediately understood. But, remember it goes both ways. Regardless of the hatefulness a person acts. It is how they think about themselves that comes out.

Sadly, there are a lot of people who are full of hate and this makes them spiteful.

This was me. I had so much hate and pain in my life that it spewed out from every pore in my body. I had no friends, my own children didn’t even want to be around me.

Spiteful or Malignant:

This is what was come out of me: I was disposed to cause harm, suffering, or stress deliberate and very dangerous or harmful in influence or effect.

Ugly stuff right? It’s especially ugly when you think of a truth we’ve all had or heard for years. How we treat others say more about us than it does them.

I immediately start thinking about myself. How I treated others, how others treated me.

Be kind. Everyone you meet is fighting a a difficult battle.

I couldn’t imagine that me or anyone else would wake up every morning and decide we’d want to be spiteful today. Yes, that’s what I’m going to do, I’m going so spread destruction, suffering, and hatred.

I’m sure people aren’t evil enough to do that. And there’s not any human Grinches walk around. Having a sour disposition that has crept up on them and they don’t even realize it. They have been a negative, cynical, pessimistic, and hateful person without even realizing it.

All bad habit’s take root in our lives. Overtime they slowly soak into us, they have become one of us. If we leave it to our own devices, they come to define us.

Thief is nothing worse that being considered hateful. Sometimes I think some people treat others badly because of the hateful seed deep within themselves,

Recently I met someone that needed prayer and support. I spoke to them and asked if they needed prayer and needed to talk. When I was finished praying for that person I gave them my name and phone number so if they wanted to talk they could call me. Immediately after we went out separate ways. Someone came up aa d said I can’t believe you were even talking to her. She is a horrible person. I in return asked them if they even knew her, her story, her pain. They said well No! They said I don’t know her I just heard they we’re. I told them I choose to love people and support them, rather than believing what some person said about them. I would like to get to know her before I judged her on what other people say.

Seriously there are people like this person in the would. Just because someone started saying something about someone doesn’t make it true.

I often wonder what is wrong with humanity and how such people could exist, just because a group or a few friends agree with a lie and keep spreading it. Doesn’t make it true. They’re hate will slowly turn to sadness.

Kindness, is like a boomerang, it always returns to us.


We have to face that for anyone to say such hate-laced words about someone they don’t know they are filled with hate and ugliness themselves

Whatever you let pour into your soul it comes out of you. If you put hate into your body, hate will come out.

A shout out to those of us who outnumber the Nasty Nellies who refuse to say bad things about a person because it was said it was truth by another, bring kindness and joy into the world not hate and destruction.

I try to remember that what people say is a reflection of how they feel about themselves. But, sometimes it is difficult for me to think they are acting out how they feel about themselves.

Begin today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight.

Extend to then all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward.

Your life will never be the same again.
