People hate you more if you’re successful. And they will do anything to make you feel bad and guilty for being successful. As you can’t just shoot them in the head to get rid of them, you try to discuss things and find a solution everyone can be happy with. Just like intelligent people do. Let me tell you, that it doesn’t work. Stupidity is like a desease which can’t be cured. Arguing with the stupid is a waste of your valuable lifetime. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience. And in the end you’re the bad guy, that everyone hates, even though you didn’t do anything wrong.
Luckily there’s a third solution: Changing your social environment, like relocating or emigrating, right? No, it’s not! I did that several times and ended up with different people who’re the same assholes that I wanted to shake off.
As you get older, suddenly you realize that everything you do in your life is meaningless. You waste your whole life working and arguing with people giving you the needle until you die some day. Everyone elses life will go on. But not yours. Yours is over and nobody will care about you or your personal achievements, because everyone hates you for being you.
Think about it and use your lifetime wisely in order to have the time of your life.
