> hatErs and Losers on the LooSe

There was chuva, kiyeme, hard, pak, chot, eklavu, bitterness and the neverending evolution of words.

Haters.

I currently find this word hilarious, especially since this generation uses the word to refer to, well, haters [people who don’t like you for one reason or another].

I have my share of haters. They run the gamut of colleagues, old mates, ex-friends. Their reasons are varied, depending on our relationship.

When I was younger, it used to eat me up. Me being only human [yes, underneath this tough exterior… I am], I used to want everyone to like me. When people like you, there’s less stress. Or so one would think.

When people like you, it’s actually more stressful. It’s stressful because it means you’re doing something to maintain that like and in doing so, lose the real you in the process. For example, even if you want to say something that’s the truth, you have to edit it out because it will cause tension between you and Person A. Or, even if you don’t want to go to Person B’s party, you find yourself going rather than have to make up an excuse or put up with Person B’s drama about your none presence.

When I got older, I decided to rather not please people and be true to myself. And yes, I have learned to live with haters. If somebody doesn’t like you there’s no way you can do things right. You’ll always be wrong. Damn if you do, damn if you don’t. They’re still going to hate you anyway.

Life is too short to hate. Channel your energy into something more positive.

Now, another -ers word is sprouting. LOSERS. So be vigilant. Losers on the loose baby.
