Unfortunately, people sit behind their computers or devices and feel they have the right to save mean and hurtful things. I don’t understand this mentality. I (try) to never say something behind someone’s back that I wouldn’t say to their face. Regardless of the post you are commenting on and who they are they still have feelings. Keep the mean comments to yourself. It’s just not needed.
I had my first experience of dealing with trolls/negative/hurtful comments. I was in a beauty group on Facebook and felt inspired to share a photo of when I turned myself into Ursula for a work competition. It was my interpretation of an iconic character in one of my favorite Disney movies. The comments were so mean and unneeded and I was called some hurtful names and even accused of posting responses and hoping that people can turn the group into a positive space as a way for attention..
Anyone that knows me, knows I love to laugh and joke and have fun. I am not someone that seeks attention. I love make up and love talking and sharing. I don’t need this to turn into anything other than I hope people can realize that it is not okay to leave rude feedback. You never know what some is going through and if you don’t have something nice to say– don’t say it regardless of who you are talking to.
I made this blog because I want to laugh and have fun and talk make up and beauty. And now I am hesitant to, I see the comments people leave on popular blogs and it just breaks my heart. We should be lifting each other up, not tearing down. Life is too messy and there is so much going on in the world. Make up is my way of escaping, and it is for other people as well. Do you boo and I’ll do me. K thx.
Sorry for my little soap box session.
