5 Signs Of A Hater

By Edited Apr 1, 2014 4 9

What Is A Hater?

This is a person that cannot be happy for someone else. Oftentimes, they are jealous of other people have nothing positive to say about another individual. Haters dislike joy and have a difficult time celebrating success in others. They are consistently in bad spirits and pass off their misery on a daily basis. In other words, negative thinking is a trademark of this unhappy person. Looking at something in a good aspect does not seem to be in them. Practically everyone has known or does know someone like this. Your life will be easier if you know the signs of these individuals so you can avoid their poisonous ways. These are 5 signs of haters: 

Haters Do Not Like Themselves

These people often dislike themselves and are not happy with their lives. How can you be satisfied with your life when you never seem to view others in a positive light? Individuals that live a productive life often have favorable impressions of someone else. They can revel in the success and good fortunes of other people. Haters do just the opposite. They actually delight in the failures of other humans. You cannot possibly like yourself when your mind is constantly looking for bad things? This is not a good way to live.

They Are Lazy

Instead of working hard to achieve their goals and dreams, haters would rather focus on flawed characteristics in other people. They would rather accept a handout than to have to sacrifice some things in order to accomplish something. Over time, this will fuel their hostility even more because they see successful people passing them by in the game of life. Many resent having to work for a living and have the nerve to criticize those that do. This is ridiculous because hating on others is a waste of time and it will not improve their lives. Their laziness is one of the major reasons why they are a hater.

Haters Never Have Anything Positive To Say

Someone could say that a man has an attractive girlfriend and a hater will say something negative like, "Yes, but she has a huge nose." Or, a woman may have a boyfriend that just graduated from college and a hater might say, "It is not that big of a deal." No matter what good news is surrounding them, these unhappy individuals will look for the worst. If you say that the sky is blue, they will tell another person that it is red. This is spiteful and unnecessary. They are blinded by their hate and have a difficult time expressing love for others. Most of the world is good and for them to only focus on the bad is tragic.

They Are Never Happy About Someone Else's Success

Haters often turn their noses up at successful people and try to downplay achievements. They are often jealous because they do not have the work ethic, abilities, and smarts of other people. Instead of asking a person to share some of their "success secrets", these failures would rather dwell on the shortcomings of other individuals. Hating will not help them achieve anything and accomplished people do not care about what these haters think. If they spent more time focusing on improving their own lives, then they would not have time to engage in such nonsense. This is a waste of life.

Haters Are Two-Faced

Some of the worst characreristics of haters are that they are often deceptive and disloyal to their family and friends. For example, one of their siblings could score 25 points in a basketball game, but the hater will consistently point out that they missed a couple of free throws. They are jealous because their family member is a better basketball player than they could ever be. Or, a friend could purchase a nice pair of tennis shoes that everyone likes. This negative person will point out that it is not made by a well known company. The suggestion is that it is not high-quality. They do not have the courage to tell other people to their faces how they really feel. This makes them cowards and few of them have true friends. Why would anyone want to around someone like this?

Fortunately, there are solutions available to help haters overcome their mental illness. Finding out why they do not love themselves is essential to overcoming their hating ways. If necessary, they should talk to a psychologist in order to sort out their feelings. Overcoming their lazy daily habits is another important step. If a hater is unemployed, then looking for employment daily is a good start. Being gainfully employed not only brings home a paycheck, but it builds self-esteem, pride, and work ethic. Something small such as making themselves get up and fix themselves some food can help reduce indifference. Swallowing their pride and saying something positive and being happy for someone's success can bring great energy to a room. Haters often do not know how to give constructive criticism. When this is needed, they should ask themselves, "Am I saying this because I care about them?" "Will this help improve their lives?" If the answers are no, then haters should keep their mouths closed. This will not help anyone. Paying attention to these 5 signs will help you avoid these toxic people.

A great article here. These people are so down low that they try to make others feel as bad as they do. Sadly, many of my past coworkers and even my own mother had these traits. They embrace feeling bad instead of feeling good.

Some of them remind me of that donkey character on Winnie The Pooh, Eeyore, with those sad droopy ears and constant negative outlook on life.

Others are just like the devil going around trying to steal the joy from other people's lives. I even find that on the Internet when I am super happy about something, some negative naysayer comes along to "put me back in my place".

I seriously think that these folks have a deep spiritual problem and need the services of an exorcist ha ha :)

Thank you LPerry for taking the time to comment! I never thought about Winnie The Pooh having the characteristics of a hater. LOL! I do think that some of them should consider attending church and develop more spirituality. Thanks again for reading!

Good article idea. No one seems to boil it down to the fact that negative people are negative. So many times you see articles about depression, or past troubles, and it's true, as long as someone's sitting on the sidelines, they're gonna be feeling frustrated (hateful) at other people moving forward.

Thank you TeeJay for commenting! Some people will always be negative and I feel sorry for them because there are some great things in this world. They are missing out on these things.

Just had an incident with a hater yesterday. A little bit of teen angst goes into the mix with her. I truly feel sorry for her because she was so angry, but instead of being angry at one person, she hated her whole world. I just wonder how she'll grow up and realize that she will have to work on her dissatisfaction by herself, rather than lashing out at everyone. Oy vey.

mkomma, I feel sorry for her too because she should try and improve her life instead of being angry at everyone. Someone will always make us angry and we all have to learn how to deal with it. Hating the world will not help your situation. As a matter of fact, it will make a person's life worse. Thank you for commenting!
