I’ve been very fortunate (knock on wood) on my blog on receiving rude or mean comments. I’ve posted on some what others may seem controversial topics as marriage equality, religion, etc. My luck run out last night and I was stunned at a comment that someone left me on Pinterest. It could have been there for a long time but I don’t see everything on my ipad and I cant check Pinterest at work and rarely am I ever on my laptop at home. Until last night….
See at night to relax I like to get on my iPad and go on Pinterest. Last week I stayed up crazy hours while Todd was in the hospital and I pinned while in a daze. The whole world knows I’m getting married and I pin a lot to my board “ I Will marry 1 day”. Anywho, I came across a pin that I seriously didn’t analyze or dissect, I liked it , I pinned it. That’s it. I understand that everything is all about interpretation but holy cow did this girl go off on me which is very comical to all of you that know me and I how I feel.
This is the pin:
And this is what her comment said:
For the record, i've been a little emotional lately and i didnt take this good. I was so upset that someone took the time to write this and it couldnt be the farthest from the truth. I deleted the pin altogether so that it would delete her post. Then i got to thinking about it and found the pin again and Re-pinned it minus any comments.
I am a Christian and I love Jesus and give him all credit for everything in my life. I dont feel like i push or preach my beliefs on others though nor do i try to persuade anyone to believe in the same way i do. I have some non-believers as friends that i absolutely love dearly. I pray for them and they're ok with that because i pray for all my friends and family. Ironically, i wrote a post recently all in favor for Marriage Equality and i stand firm on that. How i saw this pin was that times are tough ( insert your loved one in ICU and feeling helpless) but that its worth it and GOD will bless US and that marriage will be SO worth it. By US, i mean couples.
After calming down i thought of my reaction. I guess i am glad i took the non-confrontational avenue by deleting it and not commenting or defending myself. I never could find her again after i deleted the comment which is good. She did me a favor by unfollowing me because i dont care for people to judge me without knowing me.
My question is why do people feel that is Ok to comment on Pinterest, Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, any social media that is unkind and judgemental? I feel that is tacky and cowardly. If you dont like my post or pin, get past it and maybe you'll like the next one, or simply unfollow all together. No one has time for this crap!
Y'all have a nice day and to my faithful loyal followers- you mean the world to me and thank you for being nice. xoxo
