They say you have officially made it when you get your first hater. I don't know about that, but I did get my first blog comment that was not really a hater remark, but not complimentary either.
I will never understand why folks will go out of there way online to point out why they don't like what you have to say. And honestly, after reading the comment twice, it wasn't even that clear what they had to say. If you are going to go to the trouble to be a hater, at least be clear about it.
It is such a waste of energy in my opinion. But you see, we each think and feel what we do, and it is all good.
Everyone is very much entitled to their own opinions. I see stuff all the time on social media that I don't jive with, but do I go out of my way to tell them what they think is wrong or bad or whatever? Um, no. I just keep on keeping on because that might just be their truth, and who am I to say what is true or untrue from someone else?
So next time you see something you don't agree with, maybe stop and ask yourself if responding with "your" opinion is about you wanting to be "right" and not in the spirit of a great conversation starter.
Just my two cents....
