i got my first negative comments a few days ago.
my first thought was… that is so mean.
honestly, it made me a little sad. it wasn’t even about what i write about. i could handle that. of course, no one is going to agree with me about everything. but it was a personal attack about my appearance.
but then, i realized… why dwell? this person obviously wanted to be mean.
and then I wondered – why? why go out of your way to leave three mean comments in a row?
ain’t nobody got time fo dat…except mean people.
i started writing this blog about a year ago for myself. to reflect and to focus on my present and future. i also hoped to connect with other women who were struggling with some of the same things i struggle with. and i have! the women who have reached out to me have been amazing…positive, encouraging, and wonderful.
i will not stand for negativity.
i will not allow myself to be affected by pathetic people who hide behind the anonymity of the internet. so if you have a negative comment, keep it to yourself. it’s not needed, wanted, or welcome. this is a positive space.
