5 tips for ignoring haters explained with GIFs

When haters, trolls, and Negative Nancies try to poo-poo your ideas, it’s best sometimes to just put up the blinders.

One of my all-time favorite inspirations for not giving a crap what people think about you (besides my dad) is Julien Smith’s The Complete Guide to Not Giving a F**k. After establishing that judgement is just a part of life and not everyone has to like you, Smith poses the following suggestions to help you “get back your self-respect in five easy steps.”

Here they are, illustrated with GIFs for maximum impact.
