Why do people say hate affects your health? I see nothing wrong with not liking someone who has been unfriendly to you so how does it affect?

    Your health is intricately tied to your emotions. Emotions are in fact what cause diseases before they manifest physically. You don't have to believe this, but it would be wise to take precaution against toxic thoughts.

    It's very subtle and takes a long time to show up physically.

    Hate is so much bigger than just having a dislike of a person or thing. If you hate, you harbor this baggage that whether you believe so or not, carries on creating a huge burden. It can absolutely negatively affect a person's well being...because you create a wall between yourself and others. In turn, this wall (or blockage or chip on your shoulder) stops you from fully engaging in healthy activities. It impacts both physical and mental health. So, while there's nothing wrong with disliking things, there's a lot wrong with harboring actual feelings of hate.

    it eats your insides up, does you no good and it chains you to that feeling to that thing/person....for what, forgive them and let it go.....

    disliking someone is not actually the same thing as hate. nobody likes every person they meet but being actively consumed by hate is very stressful to the mind and the body.

    Actually, it is unforgiveness that does that!
