Indifference Is The Opposite Of Love And Hate: Briefly

Indifference, love and hate 

Indifference does not share any similarities with love or hate. But love and hate as qualities do share similarities which prevent them from being opposites.

While indifference as a quality unbinds us from its objects, both love and hate draw us toward their respective objects. Hence, indifference is the opposite of both love and hate, and love and hate are similar to each other.

And this is true although desires that motivate us when we practise love or hate are opposites of each other. Also, our acts of love or hate affect others in ways that are opposites of each other.

And there’re going to be times that we need to distance ourselves from certain objects or activities. So on such occasions we can choose to be indifferent toward those objects or activities to our advantage.
