I completely agree with this. "Abused" does not neccisarily (sorry, that's spelled wrong) equate to "nasty and hateful". Lots of abused children grow up to lead normal lives. But this question does lead me to wonder. When Harry gets to Hogwarts, he doesn't act at all like he was an abused child. He acts like any child who dislikes their gaurdian(s).
I think the way he was raised taught him to love, because he could realize that people can't survive without love. Plus Dumbledore always tells him about the power of love, and that probably made a huge impact on his future life.
