I finally got around to making this thread...

How do you deal with hate? Hate that comes your way and your own hate. In real life and over the net?

I have this philosophy that "if you ain't talking money, you ain't saying nothing" which keeps me focused on the bigger picture but every now and then I get flustered. So when that happens I try to snuff out my hate by having a nice long toke and listen to some music. I do that both in life and over the net. Gives me a chance to gather my thoughts and curb my enthusiasm. The way I handle haters is by sticking to my philosophy and ignoring them.

Please follow the rules and don't use this thread a place to pick fights. Thanks.

I don't really care if people hate me. That's not really my problem if they do, they do not have to be in my life if they do not want to. I personally like myself, and that's kind of all that matters in the end. Sure people judge me or label me before getting to know me and there isn't anything I can do about that. I'd rather people dislike me for me being 100% who I am than people love me because I am fitting what I think their ideal person is.

The best part about being an adult is that you get to choose the people in your life (for the most part).

"Kill em with a smile and bury them with success."

I usually just ignore them and go on about my business.

You have to first learn that not everyone is going to like you. If you have a strong heart, then find your way to love those that hate you.

I didn't like a lot of my friends when I first met them, but I had little understanding of them at the time

If you pledge love over pride, you may find joy. Don't believe me? Look at Goku and Vegeta lol. It took some time, but love is patient, love is kind.

Ignore the haters, move past it, tell yourself you will be better than them/are better than them.

I don't really hate on anyone, or anything. And haven't in a very long time. When I was younger I may have 'hated' my situation at home, living what appeared to me to be an overly oppressive, non nurturing, family environment. That led me to vent my frustration in I guess some self destructive habits, never really directed outwards. Coincidentally, it was the few years after high school when I was using psychedelics semi regularly (if not often) that helped me change my perspective, along with the awesome friends I had at the time, and I let go of all that stuff. In retrospect it all helped shape who I am today, and though I may be scarred in some aspects, I'm generally always happy, or at least content, with life. Thankfully I don't attract negativity all to often, if ever.

Hmm well my solution for hate has always been to counter it with a equally strong emotion. that's kindy how i solve alot of emotional problem. So for hate it would be love. and vise versa.

I grumble and bitch then I put it behind me.... I still dwell on stuff now and then but I usually find a way to get past it. If someone asks a related question I'll comment. It also depends on how badly I was hurt by the "hate".... A guy I thought was one of my best friends turned out to be a bigger hateful homophobic flake than I ever thought. I had to tell him off, I just cannot live with people that are so destructive around me or in my life.
Sometimes the best way to build new bridges is to burn the old ones down.

Another thing I try to do is run . . . actual physical running, like practicing to do a 5 or 10 K....

Meh, I handle my hatred at other people by being apathetic towards them. As for hatred from others, I either try to understand why or don't care. Hatred from people online? I absolutely don't give a shit about. Never understood those who kill themselves after being "bullied" online. If they can't deal with shit talk from someone thousands of miles away behind a PC, then how the hell do you deal with that shit in front of you? Pathetic.

I don't hate because I think it's a waste of time and energy.

I haven't really received any hate since stupid drama in high school, but if I were to now, I wouldn't really care. I mean, if I did something wrong or said something ignorant, then yeah, I'll care and try to better myself from it, but if someone has no good reason to hate me, I'll just ignore it.
