    is holding a grudge and thinking you're right. From Don't Bite the Hook by Pema Chodron.

    Pema Chodron says that's what the Dalai Lama thinks.

    I reaize it means I'm in deep trouble.

    I'm not so sure it's thinking you're right as much as it is begrudging someone else for thinking they are right as well. I may think I'm right about alot of things, but I don't hate anyone for disagreeing with me.

    I think this kind of ordinary hatred pops up on message boards all the time--especially political ones.

    It's that idea that MY view is RIGHT and yours is wrong and YOU therefore are dismissible as a human being. It's a grudge that gets fed post after post.

    To me, that is not hatred. How can you hate someone you've never even met? Further, why would a person be so inclined, unless he didn't feel secure with his own views and himself?

    Grudges pop up all the time. It's a feeling of ill will toward another. Add to that a sense of righteousness, that I'm right and you're wrong. Think of how they turn up in 'wedge' issues. Think of all the vitriol that goes behind labels like liberal and conservative.

    I guess I'm just not hyper-sensitive. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and it doesn't bother me for people to all be different. That's one of the reasons I ditched organized religion many years ago. Peaceful co-existence is about the best I expect because we are all so different.

    Kinda like Sky hates Christians because4 they oppose same sex marriages. Well some do anyway. She has gone so far as to declare Christians more dangerous to her then Muslim terrorists.

    That's right RGS. I have a grudge toward a specific group of Christians because they oppose marriage equality.

    I'm honest about it, and it's something I'm interested in overcoming.

    Some people have grudges towards Muslims and they aren't interested in overcoming them.

    I don't hate anyone on here.

    You all are my sock puppets anyway, so that would just be weird if I hated anyone on here.
