Late last night, I posted a blog entry. I had a really, really bad day yesterday and I was feeling about as low as you can get. Why not post a blog with my rant so I could get things off my chest and move on? Everyone has those days where it feels like the world is against them. Everyone. If someone claims to be happy all of the time, they are liars.
Anyway, I knew if I didn’t take a few minutes to rant, there was going to be no way I would be able to get to sleep. Those thoughts would have been running through my head all night long. I also knew that what I wrote would probably elicit some sort of response. With my state of being last night, it was a good thing that I did not see any of them. It was far better to read them this morning when I was feeling better. Even still, I am not going to lie, I actually deleted quite a few comments. They were that mean. Nothing like kicking the dog when it is down…
Someone actually told me to “Stop supersizing and upsizing.” Really?? If the person who wrote that is reading this, for your information, I don’t eat fast food. Period. Nice ASSumption, though. Another person told me that fat people like me did not deserve insurance. Again, really? And this is just a couple of the nicer comments I received. Like I said, I was feeling about as low as I could get and it felt like the world was against me. If I had read those comments at the time, it would have felt like written proof that the world was against me. There is no telling where that line of thinking may have lead. It probably would not have been good, though.
What I would like to do now, is thank the few people who left nice comments. It is good to know there is still empathy out there. Your comments made me feel like I am not alone on this journey. Your kind words were very much appreciated. Thank you.
All the mean people out there, I know you don’t really care but in my mind, I’m flippin’ you off.
