Let’s Talk Tuesday: How Do You Handle Haters?
When I was in high school I absolutely hated having haters. I was one of those girls who always liked to have people like them. But as I matured and grew more confident, I realized that if you had “haters” you were doing something right. By the time I finished undergrad I had several pairs of hater-blocking sunglasses and the mindset to ignore all those who had something ill to say about me.
Negative Nancies emerge from their hiding places whenever you’re doing something wonderful. Because nothing wonderful is happening in their lives, they feel that they have the right to rain on your parade.
The hater squad’s recent target was our beloved Beyoncé. We’ve all heard about the whole lip-syncing incident that occurred at the Inauguration last week. Beyoncé’s detractors lashed out, some even called for President Obama’s resignation because the 16-time Grammy Award winner’s lip-syncing was “unpatriotic.”
But King Bey isn’t a rookie when it comes to dealing with naysayers. With the help of her Instagram she posted a picture that said it all…
Bey’s approach was subtle and right to the point. However we know she’s going to shut the peanut gallery down with her Superbowl halftime performance on Sunday.
