Absolutely. No truer words ever spoken. The child is the only one that will suffer from this because at the end of the day the other parent is absolutely nothing to you, but your child is Everything to you.. Use that time and energy that you spend hating the other parent and put it to use on showing the child how much they mean to you. Then you will not only find peace, but your child will not suffer. You never want your child to feel like you hate the other half of them.
