I like to think of them as the Neanderthals of the human race. Someone succeeds doing something good and decent with their lives, so someone who is ostensibly jealous starts with the hate towards that person.
“Oh, how cheerful you are!” “What a ray of sunshine this person is!” “Here is a real winner!”
These types of people are known for not ever growing up existing in a feeble-minded of self-delusion and severe emotional immaturity. It’s pretty much like being trapped in an episode of the Teletubbies in terms of emotional maturity. Puh-the-tic!
Romy: What the hell is your problem, Christie? Why the hell are you always such a nasty bitch? I mean, okay, so Michele and I did make up some stupid lie! We only did it because we wanted you to treat us like human beings. But you know what I realized? I don’t care if you like us, ’cause we don’t like you. You’re a bad person with an ugly heart, and we don’t give a flying fuck what you think!
[Gasping, Murmuring Continues]
Romy: Come on Michele.
Michele: Okay, and…yeah!
Christie: Unbelievable! They’re as deluded about their lives as they are about those HIDEOUS clothes
Lisa: Actually Christie. They have nice lines. A fun, frisky use of color. All and all, I’d have to say they’re really not bad!
Christie: Well, we still think they’re ridiculous. Don’t we girls?
Lisa: Why don’t you just let them think for themselves for once?
Christie: You’re just jealous. Because unlike a certain ball-busting dried up career woman, I might mention, we’re all happily married!
Lisa: That’s right, Christie, you just keep telling yourself that.
There is the possibility of confronting haters, such as what Romy and Michele do here in Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (clip above, full text follows), but do I really want to waste my time and energy on haters? No, not really. I’d rather just shake it all off.
