In the last week, I have had a number of negative comments on my blog. To all of you who feel it’s ok to be negative or critical, here’s a newsflash: I am a real person with real feelings. When you leave a negative or critical comment, it hurts my feelings. In fact, it makes me fee awful.
I write this blog because I like making friends–nice people who have similar interests and want to interact in a positive way. If you don’t like my blog or me, that’s totally fine. Just click the little ‘X’ in the upper corner of your screen, and you never have to see me again.
For those of you who are real friends, thank you for your support and for standing by me and saying nice things when others do not. I don’t have room in my life for all of this negativity, but I do have room for you, friends! So thanks for being nice to me. I am forever grateful for your sweet, kind words.
I start marathon training tomorrow. I’m really excited and really nervous, and IΒ really want to share my experience with you all. That said, given the number of rude and/or critical comments I’ve gotten recently, I’m pretty hesitant to continue blogging right now. So if you don’t hear from me for a bit, that’s why. I know I should probably have a thicker skin, but I don’t. When someone tells you you’re smelly and gross and have stink all over your body–even if they are hiding behind the internet–it doesn’t exactly make you want to continue sharing. Hope those of you who are nice, sweet readers–who’ve stuck with me through so many other tough times–will understand.
If you have a blog, how do you deal with haters?
I just can’t understand why you would be blatantly mean to someone when it’s completely unprovoked.
