I think that it would be better to be loved than feared. If you are loved than you are emotionally close with someone and that relationship will be a strong one. On the other hand, if you are feared then people respect you only to your face. I also think that if you are feared that there will always be people who will want to take your position or get rid of you.
I think it's better to be a little bit of both. For me, personally, I'd rather be loved a lot more than being feared. Like Coldplay's song, "Viva la Vida", Chris Martin (lead singer) says, "...Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes..." I like that lyric, because of it's meaning. In the heat of the moment, if you're feared by someone, you probably are going to "feel the fear", the intimidation, etc.
I'm just not the type of person that would love to be feared upon. I wouldn't want to harm anyone in anyway, so why would I want to be a sight of fright?
I think it is more important to be loved than feared because if your loved by people you have their respect and they care for you, whereas if your feared, people feel like they HAVE to do things for you but they don't actually care for you and in the long run you don't really have people on your side.
I think it is better to be loved then feared because love is a wonderful thing to experience then to have never been through it. It is better to be loved and go through with it knowing what love is all about then to never know how good it feels. Fear is just a coward not trying new things.
It is probably better to be loved than feared; although if one knows how, they can intertwine both aspects with each other for self-advantage.
If you are loved, it is easier for people to trust you; the more they trust you, the more they'll confide in you, which will eventually lead to exposure of their vulnerabilities.
At this stage, you will know enough about them to know how to handle and, if necessary, manipulate them.
You'll know what to expect from them so if that person thinks about betraying you, you'll be ready to deal with that person while ensuring your pride and prestige.
I feel that being feared is better because, no one will try to cross you. Everyone will stay away from you. People will go around and say "Hey man, don't mess with him." And if you people that fear you, you have gotten into their mind, and in time you can control them by setting off that fear of you.
I feel that it is better to be feared than loved, because even though you are loved you can be double crossed and hurt. If people are scared of you they wont even think about double crossing you. If you love you set yourself up to be hurt. If you are feared then people are feared than you wont get hurt.
i feel i would rather be feared. because if you are loved then there is a possiblity people are going to take advatage of you. there going to think, well she is loved lets just push her around. not me i would rather be feared and then people would love me knowing that they will be protected. they will have a better chance knowing no one will run them over if there with me
