The Most Famous Question Of All
If you have been following me for quite some time, I bet you have wondered this… “How does she deal with the antis? All the hate? The death threats? The vulgar comments?”
I know it’s probably hard to believe me when I answer… “I ignore it”. “Does it ever get to me?”… The answer to that is “NO.”
Now, you’re probably thinking “ya ok.” But let me explain….
Why should I let someone, that doesn’t even know me, have a valid opinion about me? 99.9999% of the people typing behind the keyboard have never spoken with me in their life. For them to say hateful and ugly comments to me is actually hilarious. To me, it says more about the person they are, than it does about me. I know who I am. I know what I do. I know why I do it. Just because people don’t agree with it, shouldn’t stop me from living out my passion. That would just be silly. Not everyone is ever going to agree with everything you do, and if you let another person’s opinion affect you, you will just be taking away from your own happiness. I’m not living to please others. Life is too short to try and please everyone, so do what makes YOU happy, and the people that support you are the only people you need in your life. It’s okay for someone to disagree, you can always agree to disagree, but the negative people that say hateful things, you don’t need them in your life.
Now, with the death threats, that’s another story. Those don’t bother me either and most are fake. But I always take extreme precaution and do research on all of them. It just baffles me that some of these people can say some of the things they say. It makes me sad that someone hates their life so much that they have to bring down others down. I truly feel sorry for these people and their mental issues. People have some serious instability to actually say some of the things they say to others.
So a few things to keep in mind if you are dealing with hateful people:
- Ignore it
- Don’t even engage with them, it’s not worth your time. If they don’t care to try to learn and get educated don’t waste your time on it.
- Block and Delete
- Always remember your worth and why you do what you do.
- And most of all… REMEMBER someone saying things about you is more of a reflection on the type of person they are and says NOTHING about you!
- Remember, and FOCUS, on all the good things people say about you!
- And "a happy soul is the best shield for a cruel work" - atticus
I hope this puts some light into someone’s life and makes you realize ugly people don’t matter. Be strong. Be courageous. Have grit. And NEVER BACK DOWN!
Happy Hunting and as always, God Bless!
