It is amazing, the number of people who seem to need to
hate. And when they hate us, it might seem that the only two
options to escape their venom are to either capitulate to their
slogans or keep your beliefs to yourself. And neither of
those actually works, and in fact it will only increase their
hate! Fortunately, they have a vulnerability which they share
with the schoolyard bullies we knew in childhood.
You are strong where the haters are weak. I know that I sometimes have to remind myself of both facts. Those who hate have a weakness which can be their downfall. Meanwhile, we have strength which we can depend on. It begins not merely with maturity, but with growth that lets us avoid immaturity!
