Love to hate, hate to love, respect to loathing, unconcern to fear – has the way you view someone around you changed radically in recent times? What was the change and what caused the change of view?

Yes, sadly.

From love to disenchantment.

I cannot switch from love to hate over anyone. If my attitude ever took a swing from one extreme to the other it was not so much their fault than my own for forming an incorrect perception in the first place.

Oh yeah.

I was quite shocked when someone attacked me with gratuitous criticism. I had liked the person before, but not after. The criticism made no sense to me, either.

@wundayatta I think you are giving way more currency to that someone’s criticism of you than is ever due. Fahgetaboutit!

@Cruiser I would have forgotten it. I had forgotten it. But they brought in the cops, and now I’m really pissed and having a hard time forgetting about it.

@wundayatta Again…let it go. I have felt your indignation before and found no solution worth the effort. Move on and be happy!

I hadn’t seen someone since I was a lot, lot younger than I am now and my view of them was clouded by my impressions of them from that time. I met them recently again and was surprised at how much we have in common and at how well we got on. It was a very pleasant change in perception.

Yes. My views have changed radically about everyone I know at some point or another. Some times it changes for the better and sometimes it changes for the worst.
