How to deal with hate

Some people will hate you. It’s natural that they should.

They’ll do so for no justifiable reason, except that, by attempting to be yourself, or live based on your purpose, you challenge a reality that they have inhabited for a significant part of their lives.

So be rest assured that when people mistreat you, as they sometimes will, it’s really not about you but about some form of oppression that these people have internalized.

One thought on “How to deal with hate

  1. I struggle with not responding to hate with hate because it will encourage my tormentors to engage in more hate. I force myself to walk away and live my life , and I’m always grateful for having handled the situation with grace.
