Why do we "hate" so much?

People in this world are slightly more tolerant than they were in the past, however it is human nature to be jealous or "hate" someone for whatever reason.

I was inspired to write this because of my little brother who is taller than me. He "hates" the awesome and super cute Justin Bieber and in turn has taught my son to dislike him as well. I love the biebs and am a super fan of this child who is almost 10 years younger than me and I teach my children not to "hate" people.

Naturally it upsets me when my little boy talks about how he hates Justin Bieber. Being the person that I am when someone is feeling some type of negative energy I like to talk to them and explore to find the root cause. Of course my son only dislikes him because my brother does.

My brother on the other hand "hates" him mostly because he does not like the hit song 'baby', which of course I love. His other reasons are because they share the same first name and that Bieber is a successful artist loved by millions. Hey just check out the insane amount of followers he has on Twitter!

But then, my brother informed me that he does enjoy Justin Timberlake. And I paused for a second and questioned him as to why in this world would you like Timberlake and not Bieber?? They are basically the same but different ages!!

Then I had to inform him of Timberlakes past just to see his reaction. Clearly my brother did not even know that not only was Timberlake a huge part of the boy band N'Sync but he was also on The Mickey Mouse Club with Brittany and Christina!!

Of course his reaction was shock and he then dismissed Timberlake as well.

As I stated before, I am a fan of Bieber so I conducted a little experiment. We were discussing Christmas songs and he's not really into them either. (Yea, I know) I decided to play a little song for him to see if he would like it. I did not tell him who the author was or the title of the song. To my surprise he actually reluctantly enjoyed the song!

The song I played was Justin Bieber's Mistletoe.

Awesome song!

I then shreaked in delight and ran down the hall laughing because I obviously thought it was THE funniest thing ever!

When I told him it was a Justin Bieber song his face went completely blank. He was completely speechless!

I am sure I will probably never let him live this down. I am his sister after all. Lol

The moral of this story. What is the point of hating someone for reasons that have little or nothing to do with you? I will never understand why people "hate" people they do not know or people who have never done anything to hurt them.

Being in the public eye in any form, there will be people who love you but there will always be that group of people who "hate" you simply because so many other people like you.

Spending your time hating on others is in my opinion one of the worst things you can do. There are so many other things you can do with your time. Why is it so important to spend your life being worried about others and creating negative energy?

It is better to open our minds and look for reasons to like someone or somethings instead of searching for reasons to hate them. Am I right??

Lets keep the positivity racing through our lives!

Happy New Year!!!
