I saw once where someone that used to claim to be a fan of my blog made a derogatory comment about this blog on someone’s fanpage on Facebook. This is where ignorance is bliss and well, ignorant, because the person that made the comment was under the misguided notion that they were making their remarks in a private forum and not on a Public fanpage that anyone on Facebook can see, including me. A few days later she was making thoughtful and admiring comments on this blog, thinking I was none the wiser.
The comment went something like this;
“Perhaps start a blog and write about all the people who done you wrong. Bwahahahaha!!!”
When people ridicule you, they show what they fear most.
I am aware that some of my posts may be a huge trigger for a portion of the population, though it was never my intention to do any kind of harm. I do not write with the intention of causing pain. When I write, it is solely for myself and to get what is in my head out, where I can take a look at it. I have never pretended to be inside of anyone else’s head. Trust me, I wouldn’t want to be inside anyone else’s head.
As for writing about all the people who done you wrong…I have to confess that I wouldn’t change a thing about my process. I would much rather be writing and busy making progress in some kind of healing direction, than making fun of someone else for trying to heal.
It’s the fearful among us that will always be hiding behind anonymous proxies, belittling you personally or making jokes about others in alleged private forums, thinking no one will ever find out what they’re doing, while they drown in a glass of vodka trying to forget about the fact that they need to heal themselves.
Remember that, the next time you find out that someone has ridiculed you. It has nothing at all to do with you. It’s just their fears and insecurities bubbling to the surface. As long as they’re ridiculing you, rest assured that you have touched a nerve and they are most certainly bothered by what you have to say. 🙂
