We live in a world of cancellation. Everybody is getting cancelled left and right. Some for good reason. Some for no reason at all. We also see alot of hatred in the world today and it doesn’t show signs of slowing down anytime soon. But there is a good reason to love those that hate you.

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “Turn the other cheek”, but how many people actually live by that. My guess is not many. Maybe about the same percentage of billionaires. What possible benefits could one have for loving the haters in your life. You must think I’m crazy but I assure you that I’m not.

Loving your haters can bring peace in your life. If you don’t worry about those that say or do bad things to you, you will feel so good at the end of the day. Say you’re at work and there is a coworker you don’t get along with. If that person starts annoying you then here is your golden chance for peace of mind. You decide to block out any negative thing they say and ignore the remarks. Now you realize how you can go about doing this every day.

Its your biggest weapon against negativity

Think about it for a second. If you spend all your time thinking of this one person that gets you mad what are you really doing with your time? Better yet. What are you really doing with your life? You are slowly wasting away trying to keep your sanity while debating with other people day in and day out. As long as you continue to acknowledge the hate you will never be fully at peace. I am not following the Dali Lama even though I’m speaking of peace alot. My strength of peace comes from God.

Spend your time doing something better than thinking of your annoying coworker or the guy that called you out of your name. Focus on what you can do to better yourself instead of how to get back at a certain someone. That is when you will be released from the chains of negative thoughts. You’ve got so much life and potential to be better. Don’t let the hater hold you back. Don’t let the negativity hold you hostage.
