Read this quote. Read it again. And again. Read it until it sinks into your brain.
You shouldn’t spend time harping on “haters” because then you’re letting them win, however if you truly believe the philosophy of this quote you become untouchable. All three of these reasons are somewhat interchangeable, but they should make you feel sympathetic to your tormentors. You should feel bad for people who are so insecure that they want to peel their own skin off. While internally everyone has insecurities, to an outsider you probably look a lot cooler or more put together then you’d suspect. i’ve said it before, don’t compare your insides to everyone else’s outsides because no one really has it all figured out.
Instead of being mad and filling the world with counter-hatred, love them, love the person who hates you. No one can resist love forever, no one can hold a grudge forever. People who hold onto hatred become ugly from the inside and the poison of hatred is easily infectious because instead of looking at themselves people want to project their internal discomfort onto successful people. Obviously you don’t want to come off as full of yourself, but being sure of yourself and proud of your accomplishments whether your dominating the fashion empire, or just wearing good fitting jeans will make you look and act more confident.
Love yourself, love your friends, and love those who try to tear you down because more often then not they are projecting their discomfort.
