June 3, 2022. It's been 100 days since the russians launched their full-scale invasion.
The more they keep killing, the more they're hated. Aversion to anything russian, already existing since 2014, went through the roof after Feb 24, 2022.
While the military outcome is still to be seen, "intellectually," so to say, they have already lost. Those in Ukraine, who'd been using the russian language prior to the invasion, have now abandoned or are abandoning it. Those who still use russian are going to get themselves marginalized, and many of them will also switch to Ukrainian.
The great and ultimate division with and repulsion, aversion, and disgust to "them" and anything that's associated with "them" is already real and keeps growing.
The whole thing is really black and white, and those who are still trying "to figure out who's right and wrong" here are on the side of absolute evil.
No acts of the russian barbarity will be forgotten or forgiven. And this sentiment, created by russians themselves, will be passed on to the future generations.
🔴 ETYMOLOGY OF HATREDHaving checked etymology of this word, I saw the following:
- In English, the word traces back to a Proto-Indo-European word for "strong emotion."
- In Slavic languages, it refers to the strong desire of "not seeing" the object of hatred.
- In Spanish, the word traces back to a Proto-Indo-European word for "stench" or "disgusting smell."
🦉 One of the most important life lessons is: never make decisions when ~~you are drunk~~ your mind is not being still.
There must be no decisions made when you're being angry, stressed, worried.
At the same time, however, stay away from giving promises, making/accepting offers, etc when you're overly happy, excited, enthusiastic.
Any state of mind that is different from around 0 presents a distorted picture of reality, and the next day, there may be a lot of regret about irreversible promises given, challenges accepted, etc.
