LoS recently posted in MaleSurvivors about hating going to the barber.

This has inspired a challenge which comes from the woman who has been cutting my hair for probably 20 years.

Challenge is as follows:

Remove the word "Hate" from your vocabulary.

After all, its a strong word... and we're addicted to it.
Here's a nicotine patch to get you started:

"Strongly Dislike".

I hereby challenge all users of MaleSurvivor (including myself) to refrain from the word "Hate".

You have a choice to participate & if you are going to, you can notify us that you are going to participate in this thread so that your buds can keep you accountable.

Good luck & like my hairdresser said, you'll be astonished how often this rather vile word comes up.

I dropped the word hate a long time ago (it was my mother's favorite word) and it's amazing how much more pleasant life seems and how much calmer we feel inside even when life is shit.

Brian,

You are absolutely right, the words we use are extremely important and as a result we need to eliminate all demeaning and highly negative words from our vocabulary.

I think people discount the amount of energy it takes to feel hatred towards people that don't deserve an ounce of your energy.

Be selfish and use that energy on yourself to heal! Or play!!

Good (no, Great!) topic, Brian. And I'm going to try to live up to it. One thing I have noticed at this stage of my recovery is that I have far less that I h*te at this point in my life now. I think I can go the rest of my life without doing it anymore now.

I don't use the term frequently
From what I do remember it was either a joke as in:
"I hate it when that happens" or
I chose to use it because I really wanted to make a point as in:
"Hate on me haters"

I went to dictionary.com & used the thesaurus there.
The choices were equally harsh.
I strongly disliked them.
I am down with this too.

Lol, you suck, was that a shot, WAS that a SHOT. \:\) what you want me to back off. No chance Bro, answer the fucking post \:\)

One step further out of that comfort zone

I got ya, I got ya lol.

The barber wasn't the biggie for me but the Dentist was. I got them cleaned the other day. Wow they sure feel good.

Love
Mike
