Responding to weird/mean comments and DMs and emails

I’m not sharing who sent these to me because I don’t think they deserve any attention. I just wanted to share this in good fun. I was talking about them with a friend of mine a few nights back and thought it would make for a good laugh, or at the very least a smirk.

Normally, I don’t let comments like this see the light of day, but I’m feeling a desire to clap back. And sometimes, you just have to clap back.


herd ur short on cash. how much can i give u for a pic of ur feet

No. No. No. God no. Never. No. No way jose. No. No. No. No thank you. No. I cannot stress this enough… NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

I bet your ugly and that’s why you won’t show your face on your blog.

You are correct. I am the human embodiment of Princess Fiona from Shrek and I’m so damn scared that people are going to figure that out, I won’t show my face.

You are annoying.

Then why are you following my blog?

You are an idiot.

Again, why are you following my blog?

I have a medication that could help you with your anxiety and I was wondering if you’d like to purchase some?

While I thank you for this kind and generous offer, I typically don’t purchase medications from strangers on the internet.

ur blog sux

Then don’t follow it.

There’s something so sexy about your anonymity. Would you show yourself on cam for me?

Not for all the money in the world.

C***

Did your mom teach you that language?

You act all high and mighty but the truth is you’re not better than the rest of us. We’re all losers here.

I actually don’t think any of us are losers. I also don’t think that I act high and mighty. I know who I am, and I’m actually incredibly insecure. I would never act as though I’m better than anyone else.

you bought your followers

Sorry, no. Had I bought them I likely would have done it the first weekend I made the blog so that I could have been popular from the get go. I wouldn’t have waited a year to do so.

The lack of god in your heart is the reason why you’re suffering. You could be free, all you have to do is believe

I don’t really consider this mean, as I don’t think the person who was sending this is mean, I just consider this to be kind of… stupid. This is also a really quick way to piss me off. The implication that one’s religious beliefs has anything to do with mental illness is fucking ridiculous. There are plenty of deeply religious people in this world who attend church, give their hearts to the lord, devote themselves and do everything that their religion asks of them and they suffer from mental illness to extents that we couldn’t even begin to understand.

I bet you’re a man and that’s why you don’t show yourself.

I won’t lie, there are definitely days I wish that I was.

You whine a lot on your blog. I don’t get why people think it’s good.

It’s my blog, I can say what I want to on it. As to why people think it’s good, you’ll have to ask them. I have no mind-reading capabilities.

You’re kind of whiny.

I feel like you get me. You really, really get me.

Want to make some money fast?

Does it involve pictures of my feet?

Your spelling sucks. Have you ever edited a single one of your posts? Your blog is painful to read.

My spelling does suck. If you’d like to apply for the position of editor of #MillennialLifeCrisis I’m sure we could arrange something. The pay will be zero but I’m an easy going boss and I give out free cookies. You get back to me if you’re interested!

  1. Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you’ll be criticized anyway.

    People criticize whatever you do, so don’t worry about it. We can’t control anyone, but certainly, we can ignore them and reply if necessary.

    1. Exactly! Do what you feel in your heart to be right and, if someone disagrees with you at least that still means they care about what you’re doing.

  2. I’ve enjoyed your posts you have a good sense of humour and like to talk about things that others don’t! As for editing well on my first blog a few days ago I some how repeated it three times in one blog, I mean I was excited and wanted to get my first blog up and get my point across but three times only took two days to realise 🀦🀣 I think a lot of it is jealousy so you should be flattered they took the time to message/comment!

    1. Thank You!

      Editing is for editors. Me, I’m a spew everything out as quickly as posisble and press send before I regret it type!

      Also, don’t fault yourself for repeating anything. It happens! I’ve done it. I’m sure a lot of people have done it.

  3. The most unhappy people are often those who knowingly try to make others feel uncomfortable – pity them and keep doing your thing, your way, typos and all!! (I have my fare share too) πŸ€—πŸ’›

  4. Not gonna lie, this list made me chuckle! Its been awhile since I’ve blogged and I’ve been afraid of facing the mean comments that I know are out there and will eventually come around. But, after reading this post – I think it’ll be okay.

    Love it!

  5. How do you get comments? Even stupid ones? I never get any comments on my blog, only from people I know. I’d love to read some stupid crap like these. They are hilarious and would bring no end of joy to my heart! Of course, nice comments would be good too, but really, at this point, I’ll just take anything I can get πŸ™‚

    1. How it happened for me? I’m not too sure. It started back after my mother’s cancer diagnosis last year. I think people just really felt for my story so they started leaving me nice little notes to try and motivate me.

      I think it’s different for everyone. There’s no one size fits all solutions. One suggestion I do make to people though is to ask questions. Both make a post that’s sole purpose is to ask a question – ask it right in the title, and ask questions at the end of the posts you make. If people are reading and they see a question, perhaps they’ll be more inclined to leave a comment because they want to answer your question. I know when I see posts that someone is asking a question – even if I have no desire to follow them whatsoever, I’ll still stop and answer their question.

  6. I’m sure some of these are just trolls – they would be better off using their energy to create something of their own instead of tearing someone else down.
    The feet one was quite funny though, and I agree about the religious comment being annoying and a bit stupid. Some people I know have even told me that ‘I won’t get coronavirus because God will protect me’.
