Haters are familiar in many organizations, and their negativity and criticism can drain morale and productivity. When a hater leaves an organization, it can be a relief for those who remain, as there is one less source of negativity and criticism.
However, what happens when the hater’s departure doesn’t matter? What happens when the organization continues and is better off without them? This can be a bitter pill for haters to swallow if their influence was less significant than they may have believed.
It’s important to remember that haters often thrive on attention and validation. They want to be seen and heard and for their opinions and emotions to matter. When they leave an organization, and their departure doesn’t cause a big deal, it can be a blow to their ego and sense of self-importance. They may feel that the organization should have been more affected by their departure or that their negative influence was more significant than it actually was.
However, the truth is that organizations are often better off without haters. Haters can create a toxic and hostile environment that can damage morale and productivity. Their constant criticism and negativity can wear down the enthusiasm and motivation of others. They can make it difficult for the organization to move forward. When a hater leaves, it can be a chance for the organization to breathe a sigh of relief and move on to better things.
The fact that the organization continues and thrives without the hater can indicate that their influence was less significant than they believed. It may be a reminder that the organization comprises many people and that no one person is essential to its success. It is also a reminder that positivity, cooperation, and teamwork are crucial to achieving success and overcoming obstacles.
Haters who leave an organization and find their departure didn’t matter can be upset and resentful. However, it’s important to remember that organizations are often better off without them and that their negativity and criticism can drain morale and productivity.
It’s essential to stay focused on positivity, cooperation, and teamwork and to remember that no one person is essential to the success of an organization.
The Bible provides several passages that speak to the importance of positivity, cooperation, and teamwork and emphasize that no one person is essential to the success of a community or organization. Here are a few examples:
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12: “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
This passage emphasizes the importance of partnership, support, and community. Working together can result in greater productivity and resilience than working alone. A community is stronger when its members support and care for one another.
Romans 12:4-5: “For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”
This passage compares the body of Christ (the church) to a human body, emphasizing that each member has a unique role to play and is essential to the functioning of the whole. It suggests that no member is more important than another, and that all members belong to and depend on one another.
Proverbs 27:17: “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
This passage emphasizes the importance of accountability and mutual support. It suggests that individuals can grow and improve through the influence and guidance of others and that a community is stronger when its members challenge and encourage one another.
Overall, these passages suggest that positivity, cooperation, and teamwork are essential to achieving success and overcoming obstacles and that no one person is essential to the success of a community or organization. They emphasize the importance of partnership, support, and community. They suggest that individuals can grow and improve through the influence and guidance of others.
So whenever I see or hear of haters who just can’t let go or who obsess over the thing they left, I actually feel a great swell of pity. They lost their community of positive, loving people who hold them accountable and to a higher standard.
All they are left with are the rest of the quitters and haters who, unfortunately, are so toxic and negative that it pollutes whatever groups they try to build.
Remember: You have a choice – Love or Hate.
John 15:12-13. “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends
I pity those who have hatred and bitterness in their hearts.
