Opposite of Love

Hi there, long time!

My apologies for not writing anything since months. I was hooked, honestly. Do you know what is the opposite of everyone’s favorite word: love?

Counter-intuitive as it may sound, the opposite of love is not hate/hatred; it is indifference. Hatred itself is an emotion, rather a very negative one. It can destroy your peace of mind and can be a huge burden on your soul, so to speak. But then again, what is it about indifference that makes it stand against love?

I think it is the mere lack of interest and attention that makes it so harsh-sounding. But we must remember that while attachments are the root cause of most of human suffering, detachment AKA indifference must be a useful tool to prevent some of the suffering. Do give it a thought! Catch you soon.
