7 Signs You Might Be a Hater and How to Break That Habit ...

Are there some signs you might be a hater toward someone in your life? A hater is a person that is very antagonistic toward someone with the hope of seeing bad things come to them. You aren’t necessarily a hater if you have one of these signs you might be a hater, but if you have many, you may be. That is something only you can know.

1. You Just Have It in for Someone

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Is there someone in your life that you just have it in for? Someone that you just can’t stand? You would love to see something cut them down to size. This is one of the signs you might be a hater. We all have these feelings from time to time, if we will be honest enough to admit it. The trick is in realizing they are feelings and we don’t have to let them lead us around.

2. You Refuse to See Any Good in a Person

(Your reaction) Thank you!

We are all a mix of good and bad traits. We are all evolving. Hopefully, we are evolving into better people as time goes by in our lives. But if you refuse to see any good in a person, you might be a hater. Even if it is a person you don’t like, it is good to realize that they probably have some good in them somewhere, or at least hope that they do.

3. Deep down, You Envy Them

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Envy is an emotion that everyone experiences in one way or another at one time or another. It is a natural emotion. It isn’t one that you want to encourage or feed, of course. But if you know that deep down you envy the person that you are hating on, you may be a hater. This is a good time to work on some self-growth.

4. You Trash Talk Them Any Chance You Get

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Trash talking someone is a strong sign you may be a hater. Are you always up for a good slam against them? Ready to hear any gossip and encourage it? Here is a secret we can learn from. This behavior says a lot more about you than it does about them. You can win here by refusing to take part in it.

5. You Are Hiding Your True Feelings

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Sometimes we become a hater because that person has deeply hurt us. We may not truly have hated them to begin with but because they have landed some powerful emotional wounds, we now do. It is good to recognize that they hurt us and deal with that rather than pour our emotions out through hating. Dealing is a healthier choice than hating. It will feel much better to your inner self, too.

6. You Act Poorly around Them

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Does this person seem to bring out the worst in you? Maybe you find yourself acting in ways that you would never ordinarily act. That is a sign you may be a hater. You can combat this by calling on the class you have in you. Let me share something powerful with you; acting with class in a difficult situation is one of the fieriest darts you can throw at your enemies.

7. You Are Secretly Happy when Things Go Wrong for Them

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Are you secretly happy when things go wrong for the person you may be hating on? If so, that is a sign you may be a hater. We should never take pleasure in someone else’s misfortune. Yes, it is okay to trust that karma will do it’s job but it is important to be sure we are not inviting bad karma back into our lives by behaving badly.
