How to Neutralise Haters

One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of all the negativity coming your way.

Let’s face it, we live in a world where people know how to hate more than they can love. Where passing a judgement on someone without first getting to know them comes faster than the speed of light, we’re all obsessed with what other people have to say and think about us. But, in a world where peace and happiness is so far and few, why hate when you can do so much more with that time! Just like the seasons roll by one after the other, haters and their negativity have been present since the beginning of time and will continue to be so. Fortunately, every action has an equal and opposite reaction and the perfect reaction to counter all the hate is the ability to neutralize it. Easier said than done? At times yes, but with this ‘hate-neutralizing’ guide, you’ll be one step closer to finding the silver lining even on even the murkiest of thunder clouds.

Don’t take it Personally

Everybody knows, haters are going to hate. It is nothing new and it should never take you by surprise. While we all face the heat from such people from time to time, the key to rising above it is by not taking it personally. It is important to understand that what other people have to say and the judgments they pass is based on their perception of you and not who you actually are in real life. Allowing it to slide like a water off a ducks back is one of the best ways that you can neutralize it. The minute you stop taking things personally and start marching to your own tune, you immediately realise that nothing or no one can touch you, especially something as trivial as hate.

Activate Zen Mode

Zen mode or rising above all that is trivial and meaningless is one of the biggest tools that will help you neutralize hate. Zen, or a state of absolute inner peace that allows you to rise above anything and everything trivial is just what you need when you have to deal with haters. Among all Buddhist beliefs, zen is one of the purest forms of being. When in zen you stop seeking answers and explanations to subjective questions because they stop being important issues that require your time. When in zen, all the negativity and the bad vibes coming from the haters around you are neutralized and you reach a state of complete inner peace that allows you to forge onward without getting affected by any such obstacles.

Forgive and Forget

Forgive and forget – a statement that we’ve all said and have had people say to us as well. If it’s infuriating to forgive someone for something that’s not your fault it is even more difficult to just push what they’ve done under the rug and forget about it. However, in the quest to neutralize hate, forgiving and forgetting comes as a package and is crucial to negating the bad vibes that come your way and giving a positive spin to them. By not being able to let go of the hate, you only allow yourself to be trapped in a jail cell of bitterness, almost like serving time for someone else’s crime and when you can bail yourself out of such a situation even before it gets to you, then why not!

Take it as Constructive Criticism

When it comes to growing as a professional and as a person, constructive criticism tops the list of things that you need to get on board with. More often than not, you will come across someone who will have an opinion on how you can make yourself a better person, (irrespective of whether they live up to their own standards or not). But, as they say, what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. So, the next time someone hates on you or passes a snap judgment about you, take it with a pinch of salt and in your free time think about whether it has any amount of truth in it. If there is, then analyse, introspect and actively take measures to change yourself for the better, so the next time you meet a naysayer, you’ll be able to take the high road without batting an eye lid.

24 Hour Rule

Nothing is permanent in this world – not material possessions, not emotions or sentiments, not life itself and definitely not hate. One of the best way that you can neutralize hate is by simply allowing it to run its course. For almost all situations, the 24-hour rule works the best because it usually takes that long for an event, occurrence or activity to live its entire life cycle. If you abstain from responding to all the hateful comment and fueling it even further, you will notice that within this time span, it naturally fades away. At the end of the day, our minds are no longer tuned to obsess and fixate on one particular incident for more than 24-hours, so it’s only best to neutralize it by smiling and letting it pass.

So, the next time haters start hating for no apparent reason, just turn on Taylor Swift and shake it off!
