There are haters everywhere all over the world. Anytime you step out of your comfort zone and do something, 30 percent of people will like it, 30 percent of people won’t like it, and 30 percent of people won’t care. (Who knows what happened to the other 10 percent.).
If you are a creator, actor, a musician in a band, or someone who is putting any kind of content out into the world, you will receive criticism from others. I have experienced this with the website, people hating me for what I have created. Dealing with negative feedback gets easier with time. You look at the source and realize they may have something useful to say or their opinion could be a complete waste of time.
When an idiot mouths off, “I hate you!” you can either respond with a comeback or let it go because he might be part of the 30 percent of the hater population.
If you are continually being picked on, you can use a comeback to let the person know that you are not a doormat who can be walked all over. Often after responding with a few comebacks and making the bully look like a fool, they move on to another target.
Below we have some great comebacks for the haters in this world. Use your comeback and let them know that they can spread their hate elsewhere.

Definition of a hater
A hater is a person who hates something or someone for no concrete reason. They just thrive at throwing their negative sentiments and criticisms towards anything or anyone.
And haters carry their hate everywhere, in social media, entertainment, politics, and all the nooks and crannies of the internet. They just have a strong emotional outburst on the person or a thing they love to criticize.
Often motivated by jealousy, insecurity or for lack of attention, these ill-wishers engage in name-calling and other forms of verbal abuse just to get into your skin.
Well, haters will hate. That’s why it’s best to avoid them.
How to deal with a hater
Dealing with someone who’s out to get you is like doing gymnastics. You need to bend in the right places without breaking.
And to do just that, here are some tips that may help.
1. Don’t engage
It’s hard to change the mind of a hater. The best response is to never walk in their shoes.
If they’re being critical about you, just ignore them and never give them the attention they’re dying to have.
2. Stay positive
Hate does not drive hate. The only thing that can push the darkness is light, so stay positive.
Focus on the brighter side of things and surround yourself with good people. Don’t mind the negativity, engage in the activities that bring joy into your days.
3. Don’t take it personally
Haters have issues that they love to stick out on you. Why? Because it makes them feel good about themselves.
So, don’t take whatever they say too personally for it comes from the darkest chasms of their insecurities.
4. Block or report them
If you can’t stop the haters from being abusive, you block them out of your life, for good.
5. Seek support
Dealing with a lot of hate is exhausting. That’s why it’s important to have the encouragement of friends and family who genuinely support you.
No one ever says that dealing with hate is easy. Of course, it’s hard.
But through all the obsessive silly talk, you can rise above it by not letting the power of hate put you down. If you’re constantly talked about, then perhaps, you’re something of importance.
So, stay focused on the good things in your life because you’re one special fellow.

Hating is hurtful and dangerous, especially for the one doing the hating. In most cases, the hater even gets hurt more than the hated.
Instead of spreading hate, scatter love and positivity in every aspect of your life.
