Check out how these people are dealing with the obstacles in their life, and society:

    What a beautiful message and I’m completely in agreement with you! Haters will always hate, but what’s important is to stay focused on your journey and ignore them!

    I always used to laugh away unneeded and hateful comments, while I felt horrible on the inside. But now, I’ve come to realize the best way to deal with a hater, for me, is to just pick out their comment until I find the constructive criticism hidden deep down. This way, I can make myself better without ever falling for hating myself.

    I find that one of the best ways to deal with haters is to thank them. Seriously, whenever a hater feels the need to publicly point out something they don’t like about me, I always make a point of thanking them for their feedback and for helping me make the best that I can be. Shuts them up every time.

    Eating meat is disgusting, and fast food is even more disgusting… To think we ‘share’ a world with animals…. We don’t share, we fatten the up then KILL THEM. Why cant’t people understand this is WRONG, and is MURDER!!!

    The only way a hater wins is with acknowledgement. If you ignore them, it devastates them, even if they don’t show it. Anyways, I will keep this in mind. I’ve only had one semi-hater so far. ?

    Here’s the story of how I became a vegan: Bought a pure bred German Sheperd. The lady was raising her on real raw meat and suggested I keep with that diet. One day I was out and about and had my dog with me. Figured I would buy two McD’s hamburgers to tie her over til we got home. Bought the burgers and put them on the ground. She sniffed them and looked at me like,”what?” I figured the bread was throwing her off. I removed the buns , she sniffed again, sat down and just looked at me. That was about 10 yrs ago. If a dog raised on real meat wouldn’t eat a McD’s hamburger I knew something was true to the claims about their food.

    McDonalds and every other fast food chain are all so nasty!! My brother was given a rotten egg in his Egg McMuffin…. it was disgusting.

    I don’t get the point of veggie meat substitute. There are so many lovely vegetarian dishes out there which don’t require anything remotely like meat: why not enjoy those instead? You can do nice things with tofu, lentils, and the like.

      This is just my opinion but I think some do that trend since they want to experience how is it like to eat meat. Maybe because they just miss the feeling. Maybe they just became vegetarians. I also asked this question to my friend but she gave me a vague answer. So I understood that they want to pursue being a vegan but still misses meat so they find alternatives but they don’t want to be judged by non-vegans. With this I respect my friend for her decision.

    I’ve read about your “How to Overcome Haters” and I can say that, yeah, it’s true. People’s personality are so complex that you can never group them specifically and have a manual to deal with them. Some are with pure thoughts and good heart, helping you in their own way but sometimes misunderstood. Some are evil and clever enough to make you believe that they are good. You just have to choose the right words, timing, and facial expression. Just as a proverb says, “Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a ruling rightly given.”

      Yes indeed. There are so many intelligent words to use against a hater but not all are effective in making them stop. You can always throw or trash them with a group but you can never make them like you, it’s their habit to hate specific people. Some are even harsh enough that they are beyond change. So if you find haters, while you still can, approach them with kindness, humbleness, and wise words. Nobody want’s to hate a peace loving person unless you’re that evil.
