Not everyone's cup of tea

So I was subject to a forum thread about myself. This blog site allows users to anonymously create a username and post their dislikes about people with online accounts.

At first I was a bit upset and very defensive. I even created an account and responded to comments only to have my account blocked. Others who are mutual friends have even had their positive comments deleted and only the negative comments remain. So basically this is an outlet of hatred and negativity.

To be fair a lot of my comments were quite tame in comparison to others. One thing that was very true was I sometimes don’t think before I post and the way I worded some Instagram posts could have been worded better. I’d already apologised on my Instagram for that but hey ho.  I’m finally grown up enough that I can take the piss out of myself and take criticism but also be able to stand up for myself too.

But then it made me think, wait a second you were actively following me and my posts and THEN creating an anonymous account and writing about me, so who spends a lot of their time online?? Ironic huh?

 One massive thing it helped me with was deciding to come off Instagram once again as I was spending way too much time on there. In that sense those comments were right. I’d been toying with the idea for a few months and just thought sod it just do it now.

I’ve been massively investing time in myself and making sure self love and self care come first, so compromising that in any way just isn’t an option for me. Although my mental health is in a good way, I want to keep it there so I knew from last time that IG was a trigger so I have done something about it.
