What do you do when someone hates EVERYTHING. They are not happy. You try to compliment them, talk about awesome things and point them in the direction of greatness. Nothing works. They hate. PERIOD. All they want to do is hate. They hate this, they hate that… it’s like they even hate breathing some days!
Ok, for them, that is their option. They have their opinions. They are totally entitled to live their life miserably.
BUT WHEN …THEY WANT OTHERS TO HATE … WITH THEM…
What do you do?
It’s so easy to allow their attitude to drag you down. They find it quite simple to get others who “ride the fence” on happiness to follow them. I see others become drawn in by their hate. It’s disgusting. It makes me frown. *GASP!* That is exactly what they want me to do….
SO WHAT I DO IS…
Voice my opinion. I lay it out there. I tell them I don’t like their attitude. I show my confusion about their hateful conversation.
Does it help? Not really. At least, not THEIR attitude. It DOES help me and perhaps drives somewhat of a wall between the hate and those who, if they seriously thought about it, would not want to follow that hateful path.
I stand up for THE GOOD…the happy…the positive. THE SMILEY! If that makes the “hater” hate me…
So be it.
THAT is what I DO.
What do YOU do?
