    1. That wasn’t me that said that…was it? I am confused by your use of “partner in crime” and “dick”. 😉

      1. Hahaha! OMG! The passive aggressive smiley face!!! That’s true you are my partner in crime. Okay, I should say a wise man that I know said once, “if they don’t like it, they can eat a dick.”

  1. Haha oh yes– I’ve definitely endured my fair share of people not approving of my actions or decisions. Like quitting school and my job to go backpack in Asia for 9 months. That was considered a less than wise choice. But that’s from people who even if they “know” me they didn’t know what was going on in my head… why I had to escape… and they can’t ever fully comprehend how that decision may have saved my life. No one else gets access to another person’s brain– which is exactly why they should keep their unsolicited opinions to themselves, ha.

    1. So true Aussa. At this current moment, I wish I could go backpacking in Asia haha!

    1. I love the “why don’t yous”. They make me giggle. Or “you shouldn’t”…last I checked, I was an adult managing my own life. Unless you’re gonna pay my bills, you don’t get a say. Heck, if you wanna pay my bills I’ll let ya dress me! Hahaha

      Great article and so goddamn true. Swearing makes me feel better!

  2. Ugh. I was thinking just this morning about how just because social media gives everyone a voice, doesn’t mean that they should use it. It seems like online people feel so much freer to say things that they normally wouldn’t say to someone’s face. Frustrating.

    It’s even worse when you’re a blogger and you put things out there for public consumption. It seems as if people feel that they know everything there is to know about a person and their situation in life just because they blog about it. Which, as we know, is SO NOT TRUE. I once lost a real-friend (who also read my blog) who verbally attacked me because of a very personal decision my then-fiancé (now husband) had made, because SHE DIDN’T AGREE WITH IT. Then tried to justify the attack. Um….seriously? I ended up cutting her out of my life (something I don’t do lightly) because real friends don’t do that kind of thing. But social media gave her a sense of being “entitled to an opinion” on my life and my choices.

    Whatever happened to that old saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?”

    heh. Now you’ve got ME all fired up about this topic again! lol

    1. It’s true though! What happened to just being happy for people if they are happy, and being supportive but QUIET when they are not? Everybody has bad days. Doesn’t mean they made a grave mistake haha. That really sucks, about your ex-friend. Who needs people like that.

      1. Well, and here’s the thing….even if we ARE making big mistakes, it’s OUR choice! It’s OUR lives! Unless we’re truly endangering the lives of our children then people need to butt out, plain and simple….

        Besides, my mistakes in life have been the best learning tools! We all need to have the space to make our decisions…sometimes we succeed, sometimes we fail, but it’s our own personal journey. No one really has the right to judge that. Or if they DO judge it, they need to keep quiet about it. 😉

  3. Yep, sounds so familiar. I get my share of haters because, according to them, my writing isn’t an actual career and I should go get a real job. Whatever—the only person I have to please is me. Easier said than done when they’re making negative comments under their breath or rolling their eyes… but yeah. 😛

    1. I’ve yet to get that lol. Of course, I’m “just a stay-at-home mom” in most peoples eyes and it’s “cute” that I’m writing books now. Hah.

      I can’t wait to PUBLISH it. I need to message you later about the kindle thing. 😉
