THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HATERS IN YOUR LIFE
By Maya Angelou
A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends all their time
trying to make you look small so they can look tall.
They are very negative people to say the least. Nothing is ever good
When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters...That's
why you have to be careful with whom you share your blessings and your
dreams, 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! Right? You never 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!
People envy you because you can:
Have a relationship with God
Light up a room when you walk in
Start your own business
Tell a man / woman to hit the curb (if he / she isn't about the right
thing) Raise your children without both parents being in the home
Haters can't stand to see you happy, Haters will never want to see you
succeed, Haters never want you to get the victory, most of our haters
are people who are supposed to be on our side. How do you handle your
You can handle these haters by:
1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are *(VERY IMPORTANT!!)
2. Having a purpose to your life? Purpose does not mean having a job.
You can have a job and still be unfulfilled. 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.
3. By remembering what you have is by divine prerogative and not human
Fulfill your dreams! You only have one life to live...when its your time
to leave this earth, you 'want' to be able to say, 'I've lived my life
and fulfilled 'my' dreams,... Now I'm ready to go HOME! When God gives
you favor, you can tell your haters, 'Don't look at me...Look at Who is
in charge of me...
'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to
seek Him first to find her?' Maya Angelou
