Todd Glassberg – Views from the Front Porch- Haters Amongst Us

From The Front Porch of Todd Glassberg

Inspired by True Life


Over the past few days I have been seeing sayings like this posted all over Facebook. As I sit here on a truly lovely day from my Front Porch, I think about this growing aspect of the Human Condition.

First I must say , I am at peace and feeling a moment of pure rythym in my life. But , I have to admit , I have a few of these people in my life. One would think that after my walkabout , I would have avoided this type of person all together. Readers, I have a secret for you, people who are Haters don’t HATE you, they ultimately hate themselves.

They have probably watched your whole life and compared themselves step by step. The reason they were a shoulder to lean on was twofold. One it gave them the dirt of your weak moment, which inside allowed them to feel better about their own misery. Second, they needed to be needed, because in every other aspect of their so called life, they felt truly alone.

I know this person, they act like a friend but as I have written before their agenda is to collect info, to either use against you or to remind you to feel less than adequate. Don’t, I repeat don’t get angry, feel pity. Take a small step back turn and walk away. You can glance back one last time and think, This is the last time you will have any connection in my life. Now go Hate yourself.
