Haters Gonna Hate – Potatoes Gonna Potate

Dear Haters,

I am flattered that I’m always a trending topic in your life. I have so much more in store for you. 

Please be patient.



Have you ever felt like no matter how good a person is, s/he will always have haters? 

It’s true. It is the norm these days. 

The reason behind this is because people identify themselves as their egos. For a lot of us, hate is an easy way out. Hate is easy, whereas love takes courage. 

But is hate a stronger emotion than love? 

Don’t be ridiculous. Of course not! 

The thing about love is that love is less showy. Love is slow and steady. On the contrary however, hate is obvious. Hate is loud and shrill. 

Here’s the tough one, 

What do you do when you get hate? 

  • Do you run and hide within the safety of your walls? 
  • Do you ignore the hate? 
  • Do you talk about it to someone else?
  • Do you confront the hater? OR
  • Do you keep the hate coming? 

All these are things you can do about it. Which one/s do you? 

If it is something to do behind the screen I would recommend you ignore it, talk about it to someone else or confront the hater (if you are bold enough). Whatever you are more comfortable doing.


You can’t be running and hiding from something which is not your fault. Ignoring hate might seem like the exact same thing, but it isn’t. There is a fine line between the two. The fine line being, ignoring hate means you are a wise person. 

You can always talk about it to someone else if you aren’t strong enough to handle it on your own. Oh darling, there is nothing wrong with not being strong enough. We are all different. Our strengths, our limits, they are not the same and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. So the next time you feel like you can’t handle it, promise me you’ll talk about it to someone else? 


Confronting the hater doesn’t mean you go and whack the living daylights out of him/her. You don’t wanna do that because you’ll most probably end up in prison. 

Yes, really!

So what do you do? Go and ask the hater why s/he hates you and see if you can resolve the problem behind it. It could always be a misunderstanding. If not, ask them to not try so hard because they are only wasting their time hating you. 

Haters gonna hate, just like potatoes gonna potate. 

However, if all this hate is on screen, from your blog for instance, then what do I recommend? 

Keep them haters coming. Blow them kisses and give them a warm welcome to your blog.  


They are going to provide you and your readers with the most hilarious, most naive comments ever! 

They think they are putting you down, but in reality they are only giving your blog more and more views than people who don’t hate you. 

All’s well, that ends well. 

Remember – 

Haters are gonna see you walk on water and say that’s because you can’t swim. 

This is all assuming you are a good person who has done nothing wrong to deserve hate. 

If not, get your shit sorted out! Don’t do things to deserve hate, that’s awful.

With Love.

          1. You won’t. Just make sure you have a plan. Like a clear surrounding so you can run right after the job is done. And make sure you catch them off guard incase they hit back and knock you out instead. Finally, the most important, make sure there are no witnesses. ☝🏾

  1. I don’t know what I’m doing right , but I don’t get any of this hate stuff thrown my way on social media. For which I am grateful. If I do come across negativity in any form I generally *send* it back to where it came from wrapped up in Love, It ain’t my shit and I ain’t wearing it 🙂

  2. I don’t think I have ever received online hate, but in real life there was plenty. This is an interesting post, in which you highlight some excellent points. Once when my friend was younger and a little chubby, she was standing outside her school with her siblings, and a boy came up to her brother and said, ‘Your sister’s a potato.’ At that age, it is a horrendous insult. Her brother looked him square in the face and said, ‘well, if she’s a potato, then you’re a tomato.’ We thought that was wonderfully brave. Sometimes having another stand up for you makes all the difference 🙂

    1. Actually all the hate I got online was because I’m Muslim, so I guess that’s expected. That is really cute! Such a lovely brother! I’ve always wished to have an elder brother. 😭

      1. Oh my goodness, really? On the blogosphere? Actual haters on your blog because of your religion!? I am shocked, frankly. I always thought the blogosphere was one of the last safe places on the internet. I mean, I would understand if it was Facebook or youtube. I am so sorry you have to deal with that. 🙁

        1. Hehe.. Sadly, yup. I know.. I actually still think the blogosphere is the safest place on the Internet because there’s no other place you can get such overwhelming support! I’m just going to be happy it’s 2. Out of some 8000+.. So it’s fine.. Almost negligible! But can you even imagine if Muslims get hate because they Muslims even on their own blog which is meant to be filled with love, how much hate we get outside? It’s astounding. Haha! It has sadly even come to a point where we laugh at it. 😂
