Movies and TV shows always have an antagonist.
We learn to hate that antagonist and what they do, wanting to watch the protagonist take them down… hard.
But we also learn to love that antagonists role in the show. We like the buildup of evil so much so and we want them to be the final challenge for the protagonist to fight until they fall.
While this is our interpretation in shows and movies, we have that same hate filled passion with a lot of goals and challenges we face ourselves.
We hate when we can’t get something done or can’t do it correctly in our eyes so we do it over and over again because the challenge itself may appear broken.
They results we want don’t appear and we hate not being able to get those results so we try again with a new method. We may be enraged every time it doesn’t work out, but it builds our purpose to try it again.
We hate when we explain something and our interpretation is misrepresented or shown as a weak point when we clearly know our impact is there and can be understood.
Learn to love being as passionate as someone who is securing their ideas.
Learn to love hating the challenge that has bested you and try it one or two more times to get those results you want.
Hate is Someone Consumed in Passion
Hate and passion are similar in that when you are passionate about something you think is right, you can defend it and secure the points that make it clear it is the best choice.
The same goes for a wrong idea. We are passionate about why that idea needs to be stopped or reversed. We will vocally fight for it because we know what we have to say will challenge it in a way that clearly points out its flaws.
This is visible in a lot of debates that passion can come off as hate when someone gets to challenging another’s ideas or when it comes to defending their own.
They get so involved in explaining their point, making sure to clear the misunderstanding and misinterpretation that it may seem like a personal attack when ideas are so clearly a part of someones views.
It can seem hateful, but it really isn’t.
People in debates are passionate about the issue being discussed and the passion comes through as frustration when they can’t get what they know is right while still trying and trying to achieve the same view.
It’s passion for a choice and the determination to move people to their methods and views.
When it turns to hate is when someone is overly consumed and personally attacks the supporters of other ideals instead of attacking the points being made.
Passion in something like a debate is motivation to make something understood.
Learn to Love Hating the Challenge
Alternatively, we may hate a challenge that we can’t get over.
The challenge may not be fair or doesn’t seem to even work as a challenge that somehow some people have gotten over, but not ourselves.
We are passionate about wanting to complete the challenge and frustrated when we cannot. This is parallel to passion in a debate, attempting to make our points the chosen ideas to follow.
We are passionate about what makes the challenge good, bad or why it needs to change for our own success.
When we can’t overcome a challenge and the challenge bests us, we either formulate a new way to approach it or to best understand why we are not able to do it.
Whether it’s a flaw in the challenge or a flaw in us, we gain something from it while our hateful passion for not being able to achieve it is our drive to complete it.
Hating the challenge is also loving how much it can make us feel. How much we want to achieve it.
The results are impactful and almost hurtful when we can’t do it, so our passion and hate for the challenge is our misunderstood but appropriate response for trying to figure out the next best way to go about beating it.
Passion in not completing a challenge is our determination to get passed it and the more we see ourselves struggle, the bigger we see the reward at the end.
In both and all cases, a debate, a challenge, a struggle for what we see as the best outcome, the passion is there and it’s visible.
Don’t let hate be seen as a misunderstanding for not accepting the results. See it as a belief that another way is what should be taken into account as strongly as you believe it.
Passion and hate go hand in hand because hate is the visualization of the passion for the change we want to see.
