Haters hating are crying for help,
- For not having the balls to do what you’ve done;
- For being afraid of anything outside the status quo, and;
- For you speaking your truth which challenges their world view.
When we hate back, we add kindle to their fire. Nothing extinguishes the heat like kindness and understanding. Because you may be the first person to say to them in a long while,
- I think I understand where you are coming from;
- There is truth in some of what you say, or;
- How can I help?
It’s not always easy to respond in place of reacting. But you know you’ve made it when you have people vehemently opposing you.
