Can hatred change in one's life?

Think how rooted you are in your beliefs.Think how rooted your parents are, your grandparents...If you believe so passionately about something being right, can a person ever change their beliefs? Can hatred change within your lifetime?

    Yes, hatred can be changed. The person has to willing to change and put every effort they have into it, if they have the slightest bit of reserve they will never change their ways. It's like believing people can change, it will be the most difficult thing that someone can ever do but it can be accomplished with changing how you see the world and environments (like people) you put yourself in.

    Yes hatred can change someones life. If someone is around hatred for a really long time the person will change into a really mean person. Someone that will be mean to whoever they want to and wouldn't care who they hurt. I think it isn't healthy being sarounded by a lot of hatred for a really long time. That person might think that it's okay being mean to everyone.

    I think that people can definitely change their beliefs. It happens all the time in our world and back then. It happens all the time in religion, someone could be one religion but suddenly change their beliefs and their mindset. At first you will most likely just believe what your parents believe because they were the only real influence in your life and you really have no other option but to believe that. When you are older you get exposed to new ideas and new beliefs. It could take one dramatic event and you could have a totally different mindset then you had before. People can always change their beliefs and mindset because we were made to accept ideas and try new things. It may be hard to break a person but it can be done.

    Of course an opinion can change after have been being raised with in it. Although it may be hard to change what people hate,love, understand, and don't it can happen. For instance if someone hated Lobster and were raised with the notion that Lobsters were bad, one taste would make them change their mind with in seconds. If someone was saved by an African American and had been racist before I would think they would feel respect and acceptance toward the person that saved their life. If I were to have an experience happen as huge as those to me I'm sure my beliefs could be changed. The only way to change someone beliefs is to make them realize they're wrong and make them question what they once believed in so passionately. Yes, I do believe that beliefs can be changed.

    I think peoples beliefs can't change, depending an hatred. Beliefs aren't what people do, beliefs are what they think is the right thing to do. However people don't always think before they act, sometimes hatred takes them in and makes them do things against their beliefs. Everyone probably has had this happen to them. No matter what their beliefs or who they are, hatred can control them.

    I believe that once a person is rooted it is very hard to change their thinking but it is possible. During WWII when the German kids went to school they learned that the Jews are very bad people because Hitler didn't like them, so the thing they learned followed one person's thinking. If those kids grew up and they heard about the things the Germans did to the Jews in concentration camps then i bet their mind might be changed. It is possible to change peoples minds but it would be very hard to do so.

    Hatred can certainly change someones life, whether you are being hated against is whether you are showing hatred towards someone. When showing hatred towards someone you are taking away what respect you have for them. When being hated against you are being molded and have to pressure of needing to change into something that is excepted bye others.

    Little things of hatred can be changed in someones life, but I think its harder to sway someone to another idea if its a strong belief that has its' roots. For example, if someone has hatred towards another person, that can change pretty quickly. Maybe the person they hate changes, or maybe they just had the wrong idea of them, and you get to know the real them, and don't hate them. It's harder to change someones belief of something if they feel really strongly about it or if their family also believes in it. For example, religion. If someone has gone to church of Christ for their whole life, and now someone wants them to drop all of their beliefs just like that and go to a different religion of a church, it is really hard for them to do that. So, you can change a persons beliefs or hatred, all depending just on what the subject is.

    Hatred can very easily change one's life. It causes them to hate themselves and changes their judgement on most things. If you are the victim of hatred, you might become depressed and even suicidal. No one, alone, can cope with hatred from any amount of people. It can make your life miserable.

    Yes, I think hatred can be changed. When hatred is felt it means that there is a reason. When people make decisions on things that means that they think that it's the right thing to do at that time. People are limited to do any thing they want, they can change their thoughts about things because they want to. That means that hatred can also change because you can't get punished for changing what you believe about something.

    Hatred and beliefs can change. They can change with the times or if something dramatic happens in someones life to totally disprove their beliefs even if they are true. Lets say someones strong hatred or beliefs went out of style that person might change or a new person enters their life that disagrees with it they might change. People change and some will never it all depends on the person, belief and the times.

    yes i think people can change in what they believe your what they think of others. but only if they let themselves. if they only focus on the things that they hate then i dont think they can but if they try then i think they can.

    I believe that people can defiantly change there beliefs. It's all about what has happened to you and what you have gone through and what you have experienced through out your life.

    I believe that hatred in someones life can change in an instant. If you suddenly realize that what you have though to be right for a long time is wrong, you will change your beliefs and examine what you think is true before you establish new beliefs. This happens all the time in religion; when someone is converted. If this happens all the time, I believe that someone can change their mind about about their racist beliefs.

    I believe that hatred can be changed in a persons lifetime. Yes it might be hard to change something that you have been believing since you were just a child, but still if you want to believe in something different then you can. Nobody can decide what your beliefs, passions, and goals are in life because they are ultimately your decision. If you were to want to change somebody else's beliefs whether they are bad or not, you shouldn't because it is their beliefs not yours. You can't decide what people want to believe in life. Everybody is different.

    I believe that a person can change that belief you are rooted, if the conciquinces are right. If the belief turns for the worst a person will likely change. You see this happen when people cross over from one religion to another. that religion was all they ever knew growing up, but they made the decision to change over. I also believe that hatred can change throughout a life time. People nautraly grow weary of hating something. The thing you might be angry about might dissolve within your lifetime. Lastly you might be so angry that you forget what you were hating so much.

    If and only if a person has been taught to hate, then hate cannot be removed from their mannerisms and beliefs. If a child is taught to hate all their lives, the chances are that they will continue to hate. When they are older, they [most likely] won't look back and realize what they are doing is wrong. They will probably continue to display their contempt and hate to the world. The only thing that can change hate is correction as a child.

    I think hatred can be changed in a person. The person must believe that they can change because if they doubt they will end up not changing and go back to there old ways. They have to put all there energy into it to changing, they have to believe in themselves. It may be hard but it will be worth changing and doing something else

    I think that hatred can be changed and so can beliefs. Throughout people lives the more they learn and the wiser they become the more their opinions and point of views change. One's opinions are never set as stone you can sway throughout thoughts. The more people think about there opinions they can change in a second. Hatred can easily be changed and so can beliefs.

    If you believe in something passionately, and have been believing in this for a long time, then I do not think that one person alone can change that. If one believes in something strongly enough that you are willing to go to any lengths to protect that belief, then I do not think that one person can change that. If you have the right family and the right state of mind, then the things you believe in should not be jeoprodized by the hatred of that belief in one person.

    I think over a period of time your beliefs can change even if you were so passionate about them before. People and events can defiantly alter your look or opinion on things. I also believe hatred can change over a matter of time. As you get older you experience and learn new things. You become more knowledgeable and understanding of things. But that can also lead to more questions and disagreements of things or opinions.

    I think beliefs will not change to radically between the generation of family you have. Hatred will change alot during your life and it will impact what you consider to be right and wrong.

    hatred is a very strong word and affective on many peoples lives. it can change the way people feel about others how they see thinngs and what they would want to participate in or not. some people can grow up around hatred and negativity and its a tough thing to deal with and go through but it can teach or show people what its like to be a hater and nobody likes it. because of that they might want to change the way people see them and want to be respected and a kind and easy person to be around and communicate with. some of the most respected and loved people are the way they are and developed there personalities from always being around negativity and having to deal with hatred so they decide they want to become a good happy person.

    Hatred can change over time but, usually if you are that rooted in a belief to really HATE something then it is unlikely. The person has to have a will or want to have to switch trains of thoughts. On the other hand, hatred has changed in history. Caucasian Americans "hated" African Americans, now America is a melting pot of mixed races and religions. Also, during WWII people discriminated against Japanese and Jewish people and now there people of "smaller" race populations are excepted no matter what color. But, this is not true for all countries. Iran and Iraq are ancient haters of each other. Two different groups of Muslims who have hated each other ever since before those two countries were formed. Also in the middle east, Palestine and Israel have been at "war" since before Israel was even a country. Some countries hate each other so much that they have to be separate at the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympic Games. Beliefs can change if and only if, the person is willing and wanting to change.

    I do believe that hatred in someones life can change. You change constantly, when you go through things, or when things or other people change, they change you. Your perspectives and beliefs change, so you change. I believe that what you've been through and if you want to, you change.
