You’ve heard the saying, “Hater’s gonna hate.” You might not know exactly what it means (who does?) but you get the drift; there are always going to be people who dislike you or judge you or make assumptions about you because they have nothing better to do than analyze your life. It’s just how people are. It’s unfortunate, but it’s true. Since you’re always going to have someone in your life who “hates” now is as good a time as any to remember these three reasons why you should ignore your “haters”.
You’re Not a People Pleaser
Please don’t live your life to please others; someone is always going to dislike you. Take care of you first and the rest will follow. Someone is always going to be envious, annoyed, jealous, confounded, or just plain in disgust of you, and that doesn’t matter. You make you happy, and your family happy, and that’s all you need. You can’t please everyone, so don’t bother trying.
It’s Not Healthy
Obsessing over why someone seems to have such a problem with you when you’ve never done anything to them is a huge waste of time. If you didn’t do anything, then why are you worried about it? Some people are just wired to dislike others for no reason at all. Ignore it. The less you care, the less stress you will feel about it. It doesn’t matter what other people think so long as you are happy with yourself.
It Makes You Unhappy
You have to forget what others think and just be thankful for all that you have. So what if you’re never going to be the prom queen or the winner of the popularity contest? As long as you realize you have plenty to be thankful for, you don’t have room in your life to become unhappy. Besides, with so much to actually be thankful for, you shouldn’t be unhappy.
