A lot of people question the concept of love at first sight, but no one doubts the idea that you can loathe someone right away. There are those people who for a variety of reasons you take an immediate disliking to. I’m not talking about the universal hatred you have for a people with a particular skin color, nationality, religion or species. I’m not even talking about hating the jerk who drove into your car and took off without leaving a note. At least that person committed some act which forced your hatred. I’m talking about people who look just like you who have never done anything against you and you know right away they are the scum of the earth.
I agree in theory with the hippies about loving everybody, but then I’ll get trapped in a room with a complete stranger who might or might not be a hippy and I want to climb out the window. What causes this sensation? Are there evil spirits possessing these objects of disaffection and you’re sensing those spirits? Are evil spirits possessing me, inspiring hatred where there should be indifference?
I know you feel better when not carrying hate in your heart, especially toward a stranger. But the worst part of this negative energy is that first impression is usually right.
