So how do I respond to fear-driven hate? It’s an easy one. I give it nothing.
I have no opinion on your opinion. I am not open for debate. I know my truth and I have no interest in making you adhere to it. I have no interest in commenting on your comment. I have no energy to give to making someone believe what I believe. What a waste of my time. I have better things to do and more worthwhile endeavours to invest my energy in.
While my ego may wish to defend my position because it hates to be judged and ridiculed, my soul knows better and it is my soul’s murmurings that I listen to. It says, walk away. It says, you can think what you want about me and it doesn’t matter at all. I take your opinion to mean nothing.
I walk away and detach from any messages of fear-driven hate. I feel no need to defend myself. I have no interest in giving you any opening to attack me. Instead, I turn around, shut the gate and terminate the exchange without a goodbye glance. It’s called having boundaries, we should all have them. They are quite literally life-saving.
I choose not to get pulled into drama, negativity or hate. I choose not to feed it in any way, shape or form. Instead, I just let it slip off me and into the earth, back where it belongs. I have better things to do with my time.
And man, it feels so good.
