When someone hates life, it means they may be unhappy with their current situation, or in other cases, it may be a sign of something more serious, like they despise living in general.
Hating life can lead to depression, anxiety, and a whole host of other mental health issues.
How to help someone who hates life
If you know someone who hates life, it’s important to talk to them and try to understand why they feel that way.
The term “hate life” could be used because one situation is not going well, such as a job or family, and it weighs on them so much that it feels like life itself is the problem.
In more serious cases, hating life could be a sign of suicidal ideation.
If someone is expressing hate towards life, it’s important to talk to them about their feelings and get them professional help if necessary.
If you are unsure, it’s always best to air on the side of caution and reach out for help.
