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!

Is this real life?

Wow. Someone, a real asshole, just wrote me a really nasty note for leaving a comment on their blog. I just read their post and wanted to say something sweet and encouraging about anxiety. I thought it was a nice thing to do? I didn’t expect to get attacked for it.

Seriously. WordPress is a public forum for people to post blogs. If you don’t want people reading, or responding to your journal then write it in a book and hide it under your pillow. Why post it to a public forum?

There’s no need to be an asshole here. Kindness only. I don’t have time for anything but kindness.
