Welcome back to the The Block, feels like it’s been a while since I spoke to you all. It’s Monday, so I’m going to start off the week short sweet and to the point.
I’m not here to write about the difference of a hater or a playa hater or whatever. I’m here to point out that I’m pretty sure everybody in the right mind has hated on somebody at some point in their life. By definition, a hater is someone who hates. Duh, thanks a lot for the clarification Merriam-Webster. I’m just going to come out and say it, it’s hard to even be successful without hating someone and actually having haters.
A hater is a person that simply cannot be happy for another person’s success. So rather than be happy they make a point of exposing a flaw in that person. Hating, the result of being a hater, is not exactly jealousy. The hater doesn’t really want to be the person he or she hates, rather the hater wants to knock someone else down a notch. I hated on the Miami Heat the entire NBA season and I’m proud of it. I knew they’d be successful, but I didn’t want them to win a ring in their very first year together, that’s all. Good healthy hating at it’s best. Recognize we’re in a recession, so when I go on job interviews, I be mentally hating on everybody in that b*tch! Like how in the hell this guy get hired but I’m unemployed? I’m just saying, I’m guilty of hating, even though I claim with persistence that “I ain’t no hater”.
And on another note, if you don’t have any haters, you’re not doing something right. As a person, you should want and welcome a few haters. In order to understand the process of why haters hate, you must understand the definition of a hater. A hater is a person whose jealousy of another person success or achievements makes them verbally nit-pick any flaws no matter how small or just make up flaws in order to somehow try to belittle the successful person. Instead of getting mad at haters for hating, keep doing what you do that brings hate your way. Having haters is one way of knowing your constantly doing something right. It’s always good to have your name in someone else’s mouth, keeps you popular.
Understand that it’s in a haters blood to hate. It’s not that they hate you, but rather they hate themselves or hate others who have. The distaste a hater has for you will only grow over time if you continue to succeed, so push forward. The most simple way to deal with a hater is not to deal with them at all. They seems to always possess a negative aura around them and it may rub off on you if you’re around them to long, so let a hater do their job, drink haterade!
I’m going to leave you all with this. Be honest with yourselves, you know you’ve been guilty of hating, right? Probably recently. What’s your most recent hater move? How do you deal with your own haters? What’s your definition of a hater? Do you have any friends that are habitual haters?
Thanks for tuning in…..
