"Haters don't hate you...the reality is, they fear that they will never be able to get to where you are right now."
- Leah Remillet
No matter what you do and where you go in life you will always encounter 'haters' - those people who see the positive in your life, regardless of what it is, and they find a way to turn it into a negative thing. Whether they put you down, talk behind your back, laugh in your face, question your decisions, insult you, interrogate you, turn a blind eye, bully you, etc. they are simply lacking something in their life that they do not want to face. They see the good in what you are doing and rather than pick themselves up and do something that helps their situation, they choose to placate and undermine others' happiness. This goes for anything in life.
I want you to remember your why! Why are you doing this? and how are you going to protect yourself from being dragged down by the haters?! How will you handle the situation. VERY IMPORTANT....it's not WHAT is said or done to us but rather how we REACT to what's said or done that matters. YOU have the ability to take the positive from the situation. Harness the happiness that you have created in your life and shield yourself from exposure and infiltration of the negative that the 'haters' try to project onto you.
THINK before you REACT....If you choose to reactive harshly or negatively that reaction is simply adding fuel to their fire and only serving to bring you down...........All words and actions undergo a process before they can happen. We must FEEL before we can THINK....we must THINK before we can BEHAVE......if you CHANGE the feeling at the source you can alter the outcome of the entire situation.
TRY IT! Remember your why and don't falter! Stay true to YOU and most importantly, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
YOU'RE WORTH IT.
