The internet is full of trolls.
Awful people who make negative, and sometimes just plain hurtful comments on blogs, articles, social media etc.
They’re sad, bitter people who seem to think that if they can’t be happy, then neither can anybody else.
Unfortunately, this is just part of life when you have any sort of online presence these days. This is pretty much expected, and you can mentally prepare for.
However, it’s not just the intentionally rude, mean and hurtful comments from strangers that you have to deal with.
It also can be a lot closer to home, which is often harder to deal with.
After a long, stressful, exhausting day of working, studying, writing, editing… Do you really think comments like this are going to be well received?
- You have too much time on your hands
- I wish I could be an unemployed bum too
- You’re so lucky
- It’s a hard life
- Oh, my heart bleeds for you
I could go on and on.
Honestly people – if you want a different life, GO AND BLOODY WELL GET IT.
But you know what?
It’s not even the fact that people think I’ve been lazy, with nothing but happiness and sunshine, while I’ve actually been working hard and studying.
Whether they appreciate the amount of work that I put in every day is irrelevant.
