I must sound so extreme. Sometimes my blog is filled with happy go lucky posts where I seem to be having the time of my life. And at other times I feel guilty for what must seem like – whining. But then I guess most people go through similar ups and downs. I really do appreciate the good times, but we all need a outlet to vent. And I am always drawn towards bloggers who are honest about how they feel.
Here are some very heartfelt posts I was thankful had been written. In my opinion these writers are brave women, and I felt I gained by having a little window into their worlds. When I imagine them, they seem so much like the few nice people I have had in my life over the years – the angel colleagues, for instance.
But there are always negative people online who want to bring you down. Like in Lady J’s case, where she is not even allowed to express her emotions, causing her to have to protect her blog entries. I think it’s a pity that she’s been bullied this way.
In my own case, if there are hateful comments I have no qualms deleting them. But I understand Lady J – words can really hurt and the imprint they have made on your mind – hard to erase. They lead to those niggling doubts.
I guess you could even go further and block them from your site. It’s my blog space and my home on the internet. You can shut the door on people that bring you down. Your home is supposed to be your haven after all. But luckily I have met many more lovely people than nasty ones. Not just these 4 lovely ladies, many more readers and writers in the blog world, as well as on twitter and instagram. And I relish these interactions even as I become more reclusive in real life.
