I don’t like to use the word hate on this blog. Not too often anyway. Saying you ‘dislike’ something is very different to saying you ‘hate’ something.
‘Hate’ connotes the idea that you despise something so much that even seeing it causes the fight part of the BAS to activate tenfold. That’s Behavioural Approach System to you my dear non-psychology studying readers ;)
Hating something means that the intensity of your negative feelings towards a certain person/place or thing is bordering on ridiculous.
‘Disliking’ something is accepting that you are not neutral or indifferent to a certain thing, rather would appreciate not being around it, if it can be helped. See? Infinitely, a more graceful and polite way of hat.. ‘disliking’ something. Classy.
