You sound just like I did once

I was so pissed off at the world because nothing made sense. It was all messed, my "friends" stabbed me in the back (figuratively), my ex cheated, I fell into a depression and had thoughts of ending my life. I gave up and I had nothing left to lose.

And it was precisely in that letting go that I started to become more aware of my existence. I looked in the mirror and looked at my self and asked, "what the hell am I!? How am I alive? How am I aware that I am alive? What am I doing here on this cursed rock spiralling through space, dragged by a giant ball of fire!!?"

Asking those questions began to reveal the answers to me in the most bizarre "coincidental" ways. I thought I was going crazy.

You only think you hate, but you really may just Love very very little. Love and Hate are like Hot and Cold. There is actually no such thing as a source of Cold. We just made up a word to describe a degree of a lack of Heat. Hate is just a lesser degree of Love.

To me my friend, you are capable to alter your perspective of life in the most amazing ways imaginable. But that is completely up to you. No one can do it for you. That can only come by your own will and if your will to do so is genuine, then the answers and methods will come to you. You may have already asked for some clarity, some guidance or simply some sign of purpose to this seemingly shitty existence. Who knows where the answer will come from, but it will or already has. Perhaps it's a YouTube video, a book or perhaps a kind reply to a post on a website... perhaps.

I wish you peace of heart and mind my friend. Do not let the momentum of hate take control of your life. Grab it by the balls and see you deserve happiness as much as the rest of us.

We're all in this together, whether you tell me to go F myself or not ;)
