Hatred is Validating || Paul John Moscatello

“The wicked envy and hate; it is their way of admiring”


If you claim to “hate” someone, yet devote a significant portion of your time and attention to campaigning a narrative of how irrelevant and meaningless this individual is, you’re actually only highlighting their competence, showcasing their importance to you, and encouraging others to devote a similar measure of focus on this person’s life.

If you perceive yourself to be at the mercy of someone in a way that such a great portion of your identity is centered around professing your disapproval of this individual to your peers or on social media, without any logical argument or strategy to negatively impact their life in any tangible way, then you’re only cultivating their influence; this is little more than a veiled, often unconscious act of worship.

It is also a blanket for the person who hates to hide/lose him/herself.
