A Hater – by Maya Angelou

[Before you read this, I just want to say that I love Maya Angelou’s works. She is inspirational, deep thinking, and she states everything that comes from the heart. The beauty defined in her literal works are admired by many and inspire all. She puts truth and reality into words that paint pictures of memories we often hide or bury within ourselves.After having read this poem, it reminded me of so many instances in my life where I came across numerous types of adversarial people. May her words encourage you, enlighten you, and lead you to think differently of how we are treated, how we treat others, and how acts of hatred displayed by others either confine us, break us or make us yearn to be stronger— “I choose the latter, I choose to be strong”—Sherline’s two cents]—————————————————————————————————————————

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 enough!

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!

Some people envy you because you can:
a) Have a relationship with God
b) Light up a room when you walk in
c) Start your own business
d) Tell a man / woman to hit the curb (if he / she isn’t about the right thing)
e) 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.

Most of our haters are people who are supposed to be on our side.

How do you handle your undercover haters?

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 manipulation.

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…’

Pass this to all of your family & friends who you know
are not hating on you including the person who sent it to
you. If you don’t get it back, maybe you called somebody
out! Don’t worry about it, it’s not your problem,
it’s theirs.. Just pray for them, that their life can be as
fulfilled as yours! Watch out for Haters…BUT most of all don’t
become a HATER!

‘A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ that
a man should have to seek Him first to find her.’

Maya Angelou
