The Most Overused Word in Social Media....

Don’t hate….

Shouts out to my haters….

He’s a hater….

She’s a hater….

The Dog’s a hater…

I mean seriously?  I can’t log on Facebook or any other social media site without someone talking about so called haters.  The use and misuse of this word has just gotten totally out of hand. Like seriously, I don’t think that people sit around and have national conferences about the comings and goings of your life.  So I would dare say that most people who think they have haters are delusional at best. Some people’s need for attention is so severe that they rather make up invisible enemies than to go out and actually get a life.  Then you have those who like to boast about all the hater’s they have. “You hater’s won’t steal my shine.” Uh….WRONG! Because now I’m sitting here trying to figure out who you could possibly be talking about. Who is this hater you speak of? A former friend?  A girl who looked at you wrong in Wal-mart? Who? Inquiring minds want to know. “Hater’s are my motivators” Oh really? So “haters” motivate you to get up out of bad and do something with your life? I’m confused; do you have a camera crew following you around documenting your every move? Is your life a movie?  I mean sure, in all fairness I’m sure there are people out here who have haters. But you don’t usually hear talk about those people. Why? Because they are busy enjoying the life they have with the people they love. Why spend an ounce of energy on people who don’t care about you. Pray for their success and keep it moving.

So the conclusion I've come up with is this…..maybe it isn't so much that “people” hate on you. Maybe deep down inside you hate yourself.  I've noticed that most people who put up these anti-hate messages are the same ones who tend to be half naked posing in some provocative manner.  That’s a big red flag to me. That says to me that you are seeking some type of validation through social media. You are longing for acceptances somewhere. Well a couple of men commenting and gawking at your photos isn't going give you the validation you seek. In the end I would ask that you take a real long hard look at yourself. Ask yourself what’s wrong, talk it out. Be honest. Was that friend you called a hater really trying to give you some good advice? Was the girl at Wal-mart looking at you crazy because you had all your assets on display? And finally, do you really have that many haters? Most of us don’t. We are just regular ordinary people. And guess what? There isn't anything wrong with that!
