After receiving a lot of heat on my latest post (read here), I decided to address how I feel about all the haters out there. I have done my homework and after researching the posts in several groups I’m in, I realized that you’ll receive a bashing for almost anything. Seriously, the list is endless. Take a look:
People hate because you are…
- Speaking your mind
- Saying you hate a food just because they like it
- Disliking a city/country
i.e. I absolutely hated Bucharest, Romania and people sent me threatening emails because I dared to say it.
- Using a pad or tampon instead of a diva cup
Oh yes. It’s the new thing now. We are creating so much waste because we use pads.. so we should all embrace the disgusting diva cup.
- Feeding a stray instead of a person
When there are so many children that are hungry.
- Feeding a person instead of a stray
When there are so many organizations that provide for human hunger but not animal hunger.
- Showing skin
- Not showing skin
- Getting married
God forbid there is a law against gay marriage in your country and you decide to get married because you are straight. Shame on you.
- Not getting married
You have commitment issues and you need to see a doctor.
Why do you even bother? We want equality and we should all have hairy armpits.
- Not shaving
What? You are disgusting.
How dare you? We don’t wanna see your boobs.
- Formula feeding
How dare you? What kind of mother are you?
- Having a C-section
A good Jewish woman would never do that. Why on earth would you choose how to give birth?
- Using Epidural
What? You should experience the pain and not allow chemicals close to your fetus that will from now on live inside a sterilized bubble.
- Eating meat
- Eating plants
- Spending your own money . YOUR OWN HARD EARNED MONEY.
Jen Aniston of all people got shamed for owning a $20 million villa. I got shamed because I booked a 5* hotel whereas I can book a 3* and pay less.
- Being religious
- Being non religious
- Being racist
- Not being racist
Because you are a hypocrite and because we all need A WALL.
- Allowing your pet to come in contact with your baby
- Having only 1 child
Because 1 equals none.
- Not having children
What is your life purpose then?
- Being a blogger
It’s not even a job
- Afford to travel
- Disliking hostels
- Sleeping with too many people
- Saving it for after marriage
What are you, a puritan?
- Driving an expensive car
No matter how much money you have, if you drive a Ferrari, you are doing it wrong. Prius is the answer.
- Being successful
You are not that special, anyone could be you.
- Being YOUNG and successful
OK, you either slept with too many people or with the right few. Pick one.
- Coming from a rich family
No matter what you do and how successful or educated you become, that will always define you. You got it all easy.
I can keep going but I’m sure you get the picture.
YOU JUST CAN’T WIN!
I’m also pretty positive that most of you have been verbally bullied or judged at least once in your life for no particular reason and ended up thinking “but why?”.
THE WHY HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU.
It’s all about them.
Poor haters. You live by so many complicated rules and you don’t realize that those rules are very contradictory in most cases. I feel sorry for you. In fact, I pity you. Your only satisfaction is to cyber bully and correct anyone who doesn’t live up to your twisted standards.
I also want to thank you though and that is contradictory from my part. Because you have helped me achieve many goals. Did you know that the posts you hated the most are actually the ones that performed the best? Your hate helped me reach an audience I have never reached, without any promos or ads. Your hate brought me clients. Your hate inspired me to write more (even this very post).
So I’m not quite sure what I want you to do. Do I want you to stop hating because you are toxic, many people might take you seriously, and you’ll ruin their days or even lives with that petty attitude? Or do I want you to continue doing what you are doing because your sorry ass brings me money?
Well obviously I want you to…
No matter what I want, you need therapy. You need to stop acting like parasites and get a life. And do not think for a second that you have power. You are powerless. You can hate all you want but I love my skin, I love my life and people love me. My people. Your opinion does not matter and it never will. And the fact that you even feel important by bringing people down is plain pathetic!
So next time your cowardly selves think to leave hateful comments on one of my posts, next time you think that it’s a good idea to send me an email trashing me, next time you think to do it to anyone, whether it is a Hollywood celeb or a random person, think again. Take a look in the mirror and think if what you see makes you happy. I doubt it does.
ON THE OTHER HAND…
It just hit me. Imagine how time and energy consuming it is to put all this effort into being negative every single day. Imagine how hard it must be to wake up every morning full of negativity and consumed by hate. Just imagine the struggle.
You wouldn’t talk to a person face to face that way, so why is it okay to do it online? Or do you also not respect someone’s opinion and lifestyle choices in person as well?
MY ADVICE TO THE HATE VICTIMS
You are not to be bothered by hate. You have to understand that it is out of your control to satisfy every single person out there. You need to live your life by your own rules and do what makes you happy, as long as you are not harming anyone. Haters gonna hate – you do you.
