How to Handle Haters and Jealous People

In life, it is impossible to please everyone around you. Even famous stars and celebrities have their fair share of haters and jealous people.

Unfortunately, handling haters isn’t as easy as 1-2-3. For many of us, it can be a very humbling experience. It will push your patience to the brink and will demand all of your concentration to block out the comments and criticisms.

Like this quote said…


Here are some tips on how you can handle jealous people and haters who are out to pull you down. Avoidance will be a common theme here but know that your life will be better off if you distance yourself from negative thoughts and criticisms

1. Block your haters from social media

The rise of social media networks like Facebook and Twitter have shrunk the world so that you can now talk to friends and fans all over the world. Unfortunately, it has also given haters a direct line to communicating with you.

The best way to deal with haters and jealous people on social media is to block them altogether. Remember; you have full control on who can connect to your account and are never compelled to accept everyone’s follow request.

Block these people so they don’t have means of getting in touch with you to ruin your day.

2. Try something known as the Hater-Ratio.

In very simple terms, the hater ratio is the number of people that hate you in relation to the number of people that like you. You will quickly find that your followers vastly outnumber those who have ill intent and are just jealous of your success.

There is no easy way of calculating the hater ratio but reading through your social media feeds will often give you a good idea of how many people like you and how many don’t. Count every feel-good, inspiring, and encouraging comment against the haters and you should be able to have an idea of the number of fans that care.

Remember; if your fans outweigh those who are trying to bring you down, there is no value in wasting your time talking to the few when you are better needed by the many that love you.

3. Embrace that you can never please everyone.

You can never please everyone

Being concerned with haters and jealous people is indicative of your desire to please everyone. Unfortunately, this is never possible in real life.

People who have different interests in life, those who are brought up differently, those with a different set of values, or those who are plainly bitter about their circumstances and are jealous of your success will never be pleased with you no matter how hard you try.

Give up on the idea of becoming a friend to everyone and instead embrace that for every 10 people that like you, there will be 2 or 3 that will hate. But this doesn’t mean you aren’t doing good things and inspiring others.

Embrace this fact of life and you will be less concerned with haters and more concerned with being with those that support you.

4. Don’t measure your worth by what other people say about you.

Ignore The Haters & Jealous People

Trying to become famous is often based on how other people perceive who you are but the truth is that talent and skill will often trump opinion. This is because opinion is fleeting but talent lasts.

In the case of everyday interactions, knowing who you are and what you stand for can go a long way into helping you naturally block off all the criticisms. Always think about your purpose and why you are doing whatever it is that you are currently doing and you will feel better about your situation regardless of the haters that are out to bring you down.

Like Timothy DeLaGhetto said, “Why would you let these people ruin your day or mess up your good mood because they said something stupid to you?” Right? (watch the video below)

Do you have haters and jealous people who are out to only say negative things about you? What is it that compels you to listen to what they say? How can you change your perspective and mindset so you can learn from their comments but not allow it to get you down?
