10 Quotes to Crush Your Critics

The Haunted Housewife - 10 quotes to crush you critics (or simply ignore them and get on with your life!)

However, the harsh truth is this: that no matter what you do, you can’t please everyone.  “Haters” is a silly word that bugs me to no end, I prefer “critics”.  Besides, I’d like to bet those people don’t truly hate you; they’re very clearly dealing with some unresolved issues of their own. Crush your critics. The best way to deal with those types of people to is simply ignore them. That’s easier said than done, but just remember:
