This is Unreasonable
I had an unreasonable hatred of a friend of a friend that I would see in social settings a few times a year. I would be sitting in a room with this person at a party, and find myself staring at them, my mind empty save for thoughts about how much I hated this person for no reason at all. I recognized the negative, baseless feelings, and in spite of recognizing their destructive and pointless nature, I could do nothing to stop them. My own behavior baffled me. I was lucky that it didn't last long, the person moved to a far corner of the Earth that I have no intention of ever visiting, but I still see this individual through the power of social media a few times a year. Nothing's changed. It still makes no sense. I'm considering deleting Facebook.
