When the hate starts pouring in, sometimes you just can’t ignore it, redirect it, or alleviate it. Sometimes, you’re just going to have to do your best to hunker down, stay grounded, and refocus on what’s really important.
When things get this bad, hate hurts. It can hurt deeply, in fact. But don’t let that hurt stop you from doing what you love. Stopping isn’t going to make the hate less painful—in fact, if you let it keep you away from your dreams, that pain will become a scar of regret that you’ll carry with you for a long time to come.
Keep moving forward, step by step. Keep the end in mind—focusing on your goals, to the exclusion of everything around you, will help you stay on track.
If you’re ambitious, haters are going to be a part of the deal—it’s just going to happen. In our always-connected world, you’ve got so many eyes on you that haters are inevitable, but if you can learn to weather the storm until the hate passes—and it will—you’ll reach your goals.
