    Trying not to hate someone, makes you hate them even more. At least, that's what our Social Psychology teacher told us yesterday. I don't know if I can believe him, he said some more things that didn't make sense.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    Tried and true hate alchemy:

    Hatred * Understanding = Pity
    Pity - Condescension = Compassion

    I can see how the first equation might happen. Understanding could come through education: learning about others' situations, their experiences.

    How might the second equation happen? How could someone subtract condescension?

    By not using the percieved flaw or disadvantage of the person as proof to your ego that you're a better human being than them. I don't know, it's just something that I do when I want to get past hate.

    Good suggestions.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Thank you. Your belief is very strong.

    I do not agree with the second part.

    I think that they consume twice their body weight in excrement, routinely.

    I try to love people, but they gotta give me a good reason...and being alive doesn't count as a very good reason.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    I'd like to change it if I could. Misanthropy is not an easy thing to live with, you know. It just became a part of me, over the years.

    I understand. I found a belief of my own a few days ago that startled me. It's not misanthropy, but it definitely has caused me trouble, and I'd like to change it. Although, I'm not sure how to do that, yet.

    You said, "I'd like to change it if I could." A thought: Do you happen to have any kind of belief, something along these lines: that everyone is equal?

    Like, we are all star dust. Or, we were all born as vulnerable babies, but we were all heavily influenced by experiences, and not all of those were helpful experiences.

    Maybe strengthening (exploring) a belief like one of those would lessen misanthropy.

    I'm thinking I could do that kind of thing with the belief that's causing me trouble. Maybe it would work.
