Hate is a strange thing. It can strike at any time based on the actions of others or events beyond our control. The hate switch is flicked on mostly via impulse. It’s rare that it grows from nothing. It’s usually something that happens and then stops happening. At least that’s how it happens in my … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Hatred
Good day to you readers and fellow bloggers. To begin this post I would like to apologise for the delay in proceedings and thank you for your patience. The break was a good idea.
