I’ve decided there’s a new breed of hater. I call them “maters”. It’s because not only are they hatin’ on you, but they’re a total martyr about it.
There’s absolutely no explanation good enough for these people. SO DON’T GIVE THEM ONE! It is a waste of your precious time.
I came to a startling realization recently. Offended people have CHOSEN to be so. Sadly, I came to this conclusion amidst a rant to my spouse about something I was CHOOSING to be offended about. I would share, but it is so small, petty and actually has so little to do with me it is utterly ridiculous. It was so dumb, and I even apologized for having verbalized it because I was embarrassed.
In conclusion, don’t be a hater, don’t be a martyr and especially do not be a mater.
