This world is filled with virtually endless varieties of people, and I wholeheartedly believe the vast majority are kind and decent, but a small percentage are just plain haters.
A hater is someone who nothing is ever good enough for, and no matter what you do, it never is.
Haters are unreasonable, one sided, self-interested, self-adsorbed, arrogant, don’t want to be fair, aren’t open minded, don’t like you for some reason, judge you without knowing you, criticize your idea, just because it wasn’t theirs, is against your proposal, even if it is better, simply because it would change things for them, set up roadblocks to stop you from doing something, just because they feel like it, and on, and on, and on, and on.
Haters, there is no doubt about it. You can be annoying as hell, if we pay attention to you. The key is- “If” we pay attention to you.
When you start making some noise, succeeding, or making some waves, you start to attract people who see what you you doing, and they don’t like it. They may not like what you are doing for fair reasons, or they may not like what you are doing, for unfair reasons. If they don’t like what you are doing for unfair reasons, you have more than likely got yourself a hater.
When you are new to experiencing the attention of a hater/haters, it can catch you off guard/mess with your head/make you second guess yourself/hurt your feelings/slow down your progress, etc.
Haters are not open minded, they are not interested in fairness, and most of the time, they are only interested in their 3 favorite people- Me, myself, and I.
As they say- “Haters are gonna hate.” We can’t control the fact that haters are going to hate, but we can control how much we let them effect us, and our efforts.
If whatever you are doing to make some noise, succeed, or cause some waves isn’t illegal, and you are not hurting anyone by doing it…..GO FOR IT!

Make the decision to do what you have got to do, to make things happen, and get stuff done. Your future self, and maybe others, will thank you for it!
All of my best,
