Sublimity of Self-Loathing

Hating others is, generally speaking, quite easy. Most of the time, the people who become objects of our contempt and vitriol make our job infinitely easy — either through their stupidity, carelessness, or what have you. Like breathing or blinking, hatred for others is ubiquitous and unspeakably common, and thus is not worth much serious discussion.

On the other hand, the hatred one has for one’s own self is truly profound, perhaps even special; for only those familiar with the low funeral cry of the deepest sorrow are capable of the transfiguration that takes place when one turns one’s repulsion and hatred for the world in on one’s self and lays bare the dark emptiness within.
