Why are love and hate, the most irrational of all emotions, the strongest we have? Is it because they are so irrational? I know from personal experience that these two emotions can take control of you. You can feel hate for a person and have little reason to do so. Maybe you don't even have a reason at all. The line between the two is dangerously thin, sometimes even blurred. Is that maybe why we can get more angry at the people we're close to? Is that the reason we hurt the people we love the most? Love and hate, as well as other emotions, are so hard to understand and have control over. I Know I have trouble, especially in certain cases. What are your opinions?
