Whenever you blurt out, “I hate __(whatever)__!” Stop yourself. That is lazy language.

Immediately tell yourself, “I hate that I hate!” and rephrase your original statement using exact words. What do you really feel? For example, instead of saying you hate traffic, say “Traffic makes me frustrated!”, “Traffic makes me angry!”, “Traffic makes me want to get out of my car and scream in that guy’s face!”.

Hate is a very strong word. Don’t waste it.
