The opposite of love is not hate its apathy . Hate is the yin to the yang if you care about what I am doing and lash out at me YOU CARE enough to lash out and focus your emotions at me.... nom nom nom ... I eat it up . Odd for some but lets face it many will support you with the pat in the back I rather the tomato thrower at least they are feeding me plus in either direction of the emotional spectrum they chose to expel their energy, attention,publicity on me. If you cannot ( or do not ) Hate me that is fine too I love those who support me BUT to hate me is frosting on the cake.
Though the above groups as a whole may not like or hate me there is about a good 3-7% of each that do . I deal with its conflict as as time moves on and realize I no longer have the need to combat the haters ... I embrace them for their efforts because in real life they have no effect on my life and living. That is why I love them so well they bare little threat to me , my org, my company , my social life. As Kat Williams says "you can measure up your life by the haters you bring in".
To my haters :
Thank you !
