This happens to everyone, I’m sure: Your parents (or God forbid, your grandparents) and probably an aunt or two send you ridiculous email forwards. Emails with prayers. Emails about people trying to scam you. Recently, emails about the election.
My father used to only send me emails once in a while to share pictures of my sister. Now, I guess he’s got more time on his hands. Two weeks ago, he must have discovered YouTube because he sent me THREE Guy videos. Why? Ask him. Today, he sent me a “poem” “written” by “Maya Angelou”. I put all that in quotations because I find it hard to believe that Maya Angelou wrote a piece about haters. I could be wrong though. Maya ain’t been right in the head for a minute. Either way, I implore you to PLEASE TAKE THEIR INTERNET AWAY!
Hater/ By Maya Angelou
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
2. Having a purpose to your life: Purpose does not
mean having a job. You can have a job and still
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 his 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…’
