So many things I want to talk about and address. Not sure which topic I want to discuss today. Let’s start with the insanely rude comment I received on my Instagram a few days ago. I was so upset that I dropped a couple of F-bombs. I have never responded to any comment in the nine years I’ve been blogging with a curse word. I was beyond irate and it takes a lot for me to get to this point. It’s one thing to leave a negative comment but it’s a whole other level when you attack my character.
I almost don’t even want to talk about this because it will only satisfy her (some people crave this type of attention) but it’s currently on my mind. She basically was saying that I’m portraying this image that I’m now a single mom trying to make ends meet while wanting to buy a mansion that I posted on my Instagram stories. First, I went to some model homes to get an idea of where I want to live now that my situation has changed. It’s called house hunting. She said it was very shallow of me and completely unrealistic. Um…what the F?
What sent me over the edge
My blood was boiling at this point and then what sent me over the edge is when she responded to someone else about how I was crying to the world and begging people to shop through my links or something along these lines. She must have deleted it because now it’s no where to be found. The only reason why I even brought up purchasing through my links is because I received thousands of messages from people asking me how they can help. So I was honest. I’m not going to hide the fact that this is how I make my income. It certainly does not constitute me begging nor does it portray me as a person who is “trying to make ends meet.” I was completely disgusted with her assumptions and behavior. The funny thing is, she has been a long time follower and we have exchanged some direct messages about how she was googling my husband. Why are you googling my husband in the first place? So weird and creepy. Get a life. I was disappointed that she would leave such a horrible comment when I’ve been nothing but friendly to her.
Why did it piss me off so much?
Honestly for so many reasons but mainly because women should be supporting each other. Especially when someone is going through one of the most devastating times of their life. In hindsight I should have handled it differently but I’m tired of these online trolls. Simply unfollow or just don’t say anything at all. It’s just unnecessary to be so unkind and rude. PERIOD.
You don’t knock someone down and attack their character based on assumptions you see on social media. She said that she gets that social media makes people decent money but not millions….WTF! Is she for real? I never claimed to make millions and yes there are bloggers that are making that much. Even if I was making millions, I wouldn’t flaunt it nor discuss it.
Social media is only one avenue that makes influencers money. What does it matter how much money I make or if I live in a small house or want to buy a mansion? It’s nobody’s business but mine. It just blows my mind how mean people can be online. It infuriates me that just because I choose to share my life online does not give anyone the right to do and say whatever they want and get away with it. I will say an extra prayer for her because she will need it.
Thank you for letting me vent. Let’s get to this outfit. My ruched body-con dress is on sale and it’s the fourth color I have. So flattering and affordable. This coral pink color is great for spring and summer. I added this faux leather jacket as a quick way to transition from day to night. Love this jacket so much. It runs very small so I’d recommend sizing up if you are in-between sizes. I’m wearing size XXS. See it styled HERE with jeans.
On a side note, I’ve been sleeping better and feeling great both physically and mentally. I’m focusing on each day instead of thinking about the past. I’m looking forward to the future. I think once I find another house and actually un-pack and get settled, I will feel so much better. Right now it feels like I’m in limbo and it’s not exactly fun with a three year old. I’m currently potty training Milan and that’s a whole other post…OMG so much harder than I expected. LOL
Before I forget, these polka dot sandals are so cute. Sizing runs true to size and they are pretty comfortable. Hope some of you were able to pick them up for 50% off. Thanks for stopping by and listening to my rants. 🙂 XO
