    Can love exist without hate? Truth being told, the answer to this is no! Whilst there is no one definition of love, we can all agree that it feels you up, it is intoxicating, and is great! But it can also be heartbreaking and soul crushing. It can be scary and whilst as human we love to love, the dark feelings that come with love are those moments we love to hate love.

    I was asked to answer the following question, “If love and hate are two sides of the same coin, then what does the coin represent?” There is a simple answer for this! That answer would be that the coin represents human existence! Allow me to explain:

    • Humans love
    • Humans hate
    • Humans love to love
    • Humans love to hate
    • Humans hate to love
    • Humans hate to hate
    • Humans love to hate love
    • Humans hate to love hate

    There are eight options above. Which human are you? And why are you this type of human? What in your life has made you perceive your relationship dynamics this way? How has it helped shape who you are today? Has being this type of human made you lonely, or are you surrounded by people? How has being this human served you?
    We have been taught to associate love with positivity and hate with negativity. But imagine we loved all the time, is that not in itself a negative behaviour? To love all the time will eventually lead to a strong feeling of loneliness and project one’s lack of self-worth. To hate all the time will also lead to a strong feeling of loneliness and project one’s lack of self-worth. Who knew? It is for this very reason we need a balance of both. We do this by learning when it is the right time to love, and the right time to hate.

    But how do you know when to flip the coin to love, and when to flip to hate? The answer is that you don’t! Life is meant to be a journey all about venturing into the unknown. It is about experimenting, learning, and experiencing. As humans, these moments are associated to emotions, and unconsciously we link them to either a lovable experience, or hateable experience. When we do this, we form our own identities, thus making each and every human unique.
