‘He hates it’ followed by ‘I like and see its benefits’, that’s a bit contradictory.

I think when my friend said “I don’t need to love it. I know it’s painful but it does the job. And the more I use it the more I like and see its benefits”. He meant: I know it’s not my favourite to work with and it’s not close to my heart (not a love from first sight) compare to other languages, but logically I need to work with it to get the job done.

For example, if i’m coughing and sick and need an effective medicine that works well, I would choose Buckley’s because I tried it before and I know it works. But wait, Buckley’s taste awful, it’s not a pleasurable medicine and I hate it!

Based on this I can say, while I -logically- knew that language/feature/framework/tool is good for me and I should utilized it, emotionally I disliked it (for no clear reason) and refused to give it a try.

My friend now loves his job and he is good at it, because logically he chose to.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
