It’s time for another edition of this week’s Hate of the Week!
This week’s one isn’t exactly from a reader or a subscriber, but it’s pretty damn hateful.
A little back story: I’ve this really horrible ex-girlfriend. From what I heard, she still bitches about me, even though we broke up like 4 years ago.
I talk to her sister now, who isn’t talking to her anymore. Yes, her attitude is so bad that even her family have issues with her.
Her sister told me that one day, the ex said she met ANOTHER ex of mine who said that I created this entire blog to make money. Hence, I’m “profiting over my dad’s death”.
Now this is some crazy shit man. For someone to make reference to my own dad and dare say that I’m using that to make money, as if I don’t care for my family.
Sigh. People nowadays.
The funny part is, when I heard about this, I never believed that there was another ex who said this. Me and the sister don’t believe that at all. We just think the horrible ex said it on her own accord.
She’s THAT bad. This isn’t the first time my dad was brought up like that. It happened before and I guess you can understand why I broke up with her.
Anyway… so lessons! What can we learn from all this?
Was I angry? Was I upset? Nope. Not at all.
People can be really horrible sometimes, but you absolutely don’t have to deal with such bullshit in your life.
1) Let the miserable people be miserable
You don’t have to be angry when someone attacks you in such a personal way. When people resort to such low means just to get to you, ignore them. It only shows how miserable they are!
Think about it. Think about how these people spend so much time in hate just to bring others down.
They should be spending their time focusing on their own shit and make create a better life.
So yes. Don’t waste your time on others. Just focus on your own shit.
It’s been 4 years and this came back to me. I was like “What? Haha”. I created this awesome blog and cultivated an audience. It took hard work. Not bitching about others.
2) Don’t hide your story
If you’ve a strong story, don’t hide it. Don’t be afraid to be who you are and show off what makes you, you.
My story was derived from a sad moment in my life, but I’ve accepted it and moved on. I chose to make a positive spin out of it.
Whether yours was sad, happy, awesome or even victorious, be proud of it.
There’re plenty of people out there who’re easily jealous and want to bring you and your story down. But like I said, just let them be miserable on their own.
You’re awesome being who you are. Your life is your own. Be proud of it. Don’t hold back just because of some miserable people out there.
Heck, this horrible ex gave me another story, but I’m using it to inspire others instead of being pissed.
3) Don’t bother understanding negative people
It boggles my mind to why some people are just like that.
You know what? Don’t bother trying to understand them.
It’s just going to make you even angrier or sad.
If they want to be miserable, then well, you got to let them make their own mistakes in order to grow up.
It’s not your fault people are like that, so blame yourself.
Just ignore them, and focus on your own shit.
Make the effort of hanging out with positive people ONLY. Honestly, I think too many people in life are unhappy because of the people around them. And they try too hard to understand and justify why people are like that, and then they end up being unhappy themselves.
Screw them. You deserve to be happy, and no other person should deprive you of that.
That’s it for this week’s Hate of the Week!
Hope I didn’t overwhelm you. See the bullshit I’ve deal with in life? Haha.
Here’s my old article on how to deal with assholes in the world.
And if you like that, check my book, Street Smart Social: Become popular the honest way. It’s going to help you meet the right people in life and avoid the bad ones.
P.S. If you buy my book, yes, I “profit” from it, but that only means all my hard work have paid off, from my story which I’m always willing to share AND inspire others. I didn’t create this blog just for the money you know.
