A male friend sent this to me and I thought that I would share
HOW TO HANDLE HATERS:
HOW TO HANDLE HATERS:
A hater is someone that is jealous and envious and spends all their time trying to make you look small so they can look tall. When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters... That's why you have to be careful who you share your blessings and your dreams with because some folk can't handle seeing you blessed...It's dangerous to be like somebody else...
If God wanted you to be like somebody else He would have given you what he gave them. You don't know what people have gone through to get what they have... (The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they don't know my story...) If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too. We've all got some haters among us:
1. Some people don't like it that you can* Come to church* Get your praise on * Bless His Holy Name*
2. Haters don't want to see you happy*
3. Haters don't want to see you succeed* Haters don't want you to get the victory
Most of our haters are people that are supposed to be on our side.
How do you handle the haters who you at least expect to have your guard up against?
You can handle your haters by:
1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are
2. Having a purpose
3. By remembering what you have is by divine prerogative and not human manipulation.
Purpose does not mean having a job. You can have a job and still be unfilled. A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to be. Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you. You will always be trying to get stuff because the more stuff you have will improve what others think about you, but what others think will last as long as the stuff last.
When God gives you favor, you can tell your haters, 'Don't look at me...Look at who is in charge of me... Remember, it ain't about you, but it's all about God.
Note: I needed to read this. I wish that we all had the spirit of helping our fellowmen but most of the time it is so hard to find. But I have found some great supporters in my life and please know that I appreciate each of you!
