Degrees of Emotion
It annoys me to no end when people have a bad day and talk about how “depressed" they are. So, I made some emotional scales. These show the extremes of emotions and the most minimal state of the emotion.
I agree with this list almost entirely, but I have to disagree with your placement of “hate”. I feel that hate should be placed right about were love is placed, if not higher. It really disappoints me that people don’t understand the magnitude of that word. We seem to use it so often that the meaning has been lost, and it’s a shame because it’s a very powerful word with so much meaning behind it. Nothing can make you realise how much of a gut wrenching impact it has, and how empty it can make you feel more than being told your hated by a person you adore. Your friends, the people you see on the street, people with different beliefs or interest or opinions, people of different races, people with different or same sexual orientation as you, old people, young people… your parents… They all have feelings just like you, so please be more conscious about your words, because the last thing I want you to do is count the times you’ve said you’ve hated a love one when they’re gone.
