It is time we realized that hatred is a weak emotion and that we shouldn’t concentrate so much of our energy to hate on someone. It is truly pathetic to be considered a hater. Just because you couldn’t do something that someone else successfully did, you have no right to hate on them. Just try harder next time.
There is no reason for anyone to hate, if you are insecure about yourself, then you should keep it to yourself. Just know there’s a fine line between a critic and a hater. Here are the 5 signs you are a hater.
You go out of your way to dig up information on other people.
If you go out of your way to research a person’s personal life aside from any social media networks, then you, my friend, are trying way too hard. You are already wasting too much energy trying to dig up dirt just to uplift your spirits. A hater likes to bask in the flaws of others just to quell his own insecurities.
You immediately discredit someone’s idea without really giving it a shot.
Everyone has a dream and an ideal image of success. Shooting down people’s dreams is a major red flag and it shows that you are a hater. What kind of person doesn’t want to see others achieve their dreams? You should probably spend less time looking at the flaws in someone else’s goals and go out there and find a goal of your own to achieve.
There is a difference between constructive criticism and hating. A hater will never give constructive criticism because it is a way of making someone else better. The only reason haters would ever point out your flaws is because they want the other person to feel doubtful about what they are doing. That is why you should never let the comments of haters get to you because all they really want to do is bring you down to their level.
You’re more concerned about someone else’s success than your own.
Showing more concern for another person’s success than your own proves that you’re a hater. There is no other way to put it. Why would you be spending so much effort worrying about what someone else is doing just because you couldn’t do the same. Haters usually want to be in the position of the person they are hating on.
You intentionally look for the negative details to discredit everyone’s story.
If out of a whole conversation, you pay attention to the few negative details and decide to highlight those details over the other ones, then you’re a hater. There is no way you should be spending that much energy to concentrate on people’s mishaps. It’s not cool and you should learn to give credit where credit is due.
