Love Beats Hate

There is alot that I am dealing with for hate, but let's do love.

I love the weather in SoCal, I love that I feel so comfy here. I love that I have friends that are willing to take me on to get me out of winter in Canada. 

I love my family and friends, yes, blood isn't thicker than water.

Love beats hate...

yes it does. Love needs to beat hate. Too many people enjoy being negative, perhaps for a reason to feel better about themselves? I know schoolyard games, but it continues with people in family and workplace. It is rediculous.

Yes I have lost people in my life due to my illness, maybe not but the excuses are always because I am sick. Scapegoat or cowards. 

Thank you to those that continue to read, you prove that love beats hate. 
Thank you for those that support me in your words and silly pctures.

Love Beats Hate. We need to spread this around.

Love. Beats. Hate. Just do it.


  1. So much is lost to negativity for those people. Love busts the world wide open! Thank you for this post :)

  2. It's awesome that you know that love beats hate! Thanks for spreading the love!

  3. Schoolyard games perfectly sums up the power of hate... love does beat hate, and I am glad you have found so many things to love in your life xx

  4. I agree we need to spread the word: Love Beats Hate! Thanks for doing your part!

  5. Rhian,

    Sooner or later, I think everyone who is chronically ill loses relationships due, at least in part, to the illnesses.

    While it hurts, I try to look at it like these friendships are not meant to be if they would abandon me because of health problems that are out of my control!

    Illness definitely can be a scapegoat for people who don't feel like putting in the work, time, and effort that strong relationships take. For some, it's easier to run for the hills (blaming illness), when there may have been issues unrelated to illness that were just as responsible (if not more so) for the person "bailing out".

    Love beats hate! As you (and maybe Nike?) put it, "just do it"!

    Thanks, Rhian, for your second LBH post. I'm sending healing energy your way!!!


  6. A great blog post, Rhian. Love does indeed beat hate. It's never tiresome to hear or repeat.
