If someone does not agree with your politics, he is not a hater; he simply disagrees with your politics.
If someone does not agree with your religious views, he is not a hater; he simply disagrees with your religious views.
If someone does not agree with your philosophical world view, he is not a hater; he simply disagrees with your philosophical world view.
If you acquire a great job, house, or lover and you now think all of your friends are haters, they are not haters, they are not green with envy, they are not spending their waking hours planning your downfall, they are not being used by the devil, and there is no need for God to have your back. All you need is a little self-confidence.
However, if you drive a Honda, and your neighbor of 10 years goes out and buys a Toyota, that neighbor is definitely a hater.
If the Atlanta Falcons are in the Superbowl, and your colleagues are rooting for the New England Patriots, those colleagues are definitely haters.
If the Chicago Cubs win the World Series, and your friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, and complete strangers do not share your enthusiasm, all of these people are haters.
In summation, a) for those who disagree with your politics, religion, or overall world view, don’t be too quick to consider them enemies. After all, you, by default, disagree with their perspectives, too.
b) If you think you are surrounded by haters because you have accomplished or acquired things, practice loving yourself. As your love for yourself increases, you’ll notice that your “haters” decrease (There’s a direct correlation.).
