Haters don’t really hate you. They hate themselves because you are a reflection of what they wish to be and they love you so much that its hard for them to say but envy you. In short we can just say they are your fans.
I could be so strong and willed sometimes. And I make other people happy and not try to work at my own happiness but again I also need someone to hold me tight and say everything will be ok. I am not happy today a little sad but I will pass it. Just like any other sad days I had. This is just life spicing some things in my life. Lord knows I am not backing down until I get back to my old me and be happy again.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but we often took so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened up for us.
