The Lovers vs. The Haters In Your Life

There are two types of people in this world. There are those who are good and those that are evil. During this past year, I have been witness to those types of people. I call these people the Lovers and the Haters.


The Lovers (good) in your life does not necessarily have to be your significant other. It can be a family member, a friend, a stranger, or anyone and anything that gives you or make you feel that genuine love. That love should not feel like a burden. It does not wish any trouble on you or others around you. This type of person, the lovers (the good), builds you up mentally and spiritually. When you need them, no matter what, they are there. Though, the lovers are not always perfect, they wish you well and wish you life, not death.

The Haters (bad/evil) in your life can often be like camillions. They try to blend in with the Lovers in your life. These type of people are those who wish various kinds of harm (social, financial, physical). The Haters try to come up with ways to harm you and those around. The Haters are judgmental and negative. Unlike the Lovers, the Haters wish you death, not life. The Haters are vindictive and laugh at your downfalls.

I am learning that negativity and the Haters can only affect you if you allow them too. No weapons formed shall prosper. I was taught that as a little girl. It is even more revelant now as an adult. Sometimes you have to get in your own little corner and pray for the Haters and thank God for the Lovers in your life.

I can't look in your life and tell you who is your Hater and the Lovers in your life. I can only tell you that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. Sometimes you have to work on removing those things and those people that are not for you out of your life. You have to stop concentrating on why you have Haters and look toward the positive.
