Don't Be Hatin'

Earlier this week I went to a DOPE concert. Similar to most shows, it started with an opening act. This young lady not only had a unique voice, but she also was beautiful! (my personal opinion)

She commanded the stage with her presence and sexy dance moves (yes...I said sexy, get over it...) and sang confidently songs most people probably never heard. In my mind I was giving her props, bobbing my head, and screaming at the end of her songs because I, legit, thought she was on point! As I looked around however, I noticed most people didn't even give her a chance. Men who were there with dates, looked uninterested (mainly because they had to), and others looked with an intensely, critical eye, and annoyed glare. Now, some might argue that perhaps they didn't think she was that great, perhaps they thought, they could have done better. I do believe everyone is entitled to their opinion, but something tells me that we have a large population of women (and men), who are suffering from HATERATION.

Yes...HATERATION...look it up...( urban dictionary for my non- Mary J. fans). The crazy part is that a lot of people suffer from this unknowingly. Answer the questions below with "Yes" or "No" to find out if you are an undiagnosed Hater.
