Hate may be a strong word, but it is nevertheless the most apt term for describing the way we feel about a large range of different things. In fact most of us hate so many things, that it is going to be something of a challenge to create a list of the top 10 most hated things. Still though, while many of us might muse that we hate certain TV shows or people in our lives, there are nevertheless a few things that are hated in such large numbers that they really stand out. We all have our own individual hates and dislikes, but some things are just universally reviled. Here we will look at the top 10 things people hate and what makes them so repulsive.
10 The Rain
This is a big hate for many of us and it’s easy to see why. Not only will rain mean that you turn up to any destination soaking wet and miserable, but it will also mean that there are many things you simply can’t do. No barbeques, no days in the park and no sunbathing.
9 The Cold
Perhaps slightly worse than the rain is the cold which can really get you down over time; it makes your joints ache, it leaves you not wanting to go out, but unlike rain it’s not even a viable excuse for staying home.
How many times have you heard someone tell you they hate maths? Of course this is a real shame considering how useful maths is and how rewarding it can be, but from anecdotal evidence alone it would seem this is one of the top 10 things people hate.
7 Justin Bieber
The whole Justin Bieber thing has gone a little bit far and it’s almost certain that the poor guy doesn’t deserve all the flack that comes his way. Nevertheless, the fact remains that the Bieb’ is not popular and that much of the world are united in their dislike of this guy…
6 Being Lied To
Being lied to is an incredibly frustrating experience in many ways and can also be very hurtful and destructive too. This is both hateful in itself and in its potential consequences and definitely one of the top ten things people hate.
5 The Way We Look
It’s a sad fact, but a lot of people don’t like the way they look and will dislike something about their appearance of their bodies. This could be widened even to include all aspects of ourselves and our personalities. It goes without saying of course that this is not the way we should feel and that it’s important we learn to appreciate ourselves more.
4 Flu and Colds
Being ill is something we all hate, but I’m listing flus and colds in particular because they are so common and so irritating. How many times have you woken up with a sniffly nose only for your heart to completely sink?
3 Getting Older
We all hate getting older for number of reasons. While there are positives to a more advanced age, we are generally more likely to focus on the loss of our looks, opportunities lost and our mortality; all of which makes this one of the top ten things people hate.
More upsetting than colds or age in general is pain specifically. Being in pain, particularly chronic pain, can prevent us from enjoying our lives and experiences; but worse still is seeing the ones we love in pain and being unable to help.
We all hate goodbyes and all of them for different reasons. Some goodbyes can be bittersweet, some can be sad and others can be tragic. Whether you’re saying goodbye to a friend after a goodnight out though, a relative who has passed away, or an ex-lover who’s leaving the country, it’s always something we wish we didn’t have to do.
