Happy People Don’t Hate

Happy People Don’t Allow Themselves To Hate

“I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him.” ~ Booker T. Washington (1865 – 1915) Author and Educator

Habitually Happy People refuse to let themselves hate because hate, like jealousy and envy is such a negative, dangerous emotion. Hate drives people to do things they would never do were those destructive feelings absent. Hate degrades the spirit and the soul.

Do happy people get angry and upset? Absolutely! But they channel those feelings in positive, productive ways. They rebel against being controlled by any negative, destructive feeling whether it be their own or other people’s negativity.

A happy life is not infected with hate, jealousy or envy. To live happily, decide to eliminate those feelings from your head and from your heart.

    Are evil people ever happy? What does it take to be happy & evil. Are all altruistic people happy? Or do some give from guilt?
