I’m writing this post while riding the ferry, feeling refreshed and ready to start anew.
In my previous non-anonymous blog, I got dragged. Don’t get me wrong, I had a pretty nice viewing with lots of people supporting me, those who found a common ground with me, and were genuinely interested in my life.
That’s when the haters came in.
There were people (who I shall not mention by name as they do not deserve anymore attention then they already have received), who commented really hurtful things. If it wasn’t sexist comments, it was insults towards my race, my religion, my path. And since I linked my blogs to my Facebook/Instagram/twitter, the haters followed me everywhere. Sent me personal messages. Notifications all the time. Constant sounds. In the AM. In the PM. During my work hours. While I got ready for bed. ALL THE TIME.
You know, before I started writing, I really thought I can handle the negativity. But it got to me. I got tired of responding; I got tired of ignoring. I was grateful to all those that responded and flagged those messages, but I just couldn’t handle it anymore.
That is why I decided to start over. Just unknown me, my writing, and you. That’s it. I will continue doing what I love. I will not stop.
