Negativity

Some time ago, in my 'awaiting moderation' comments box (which I have to cut down on spam), I got this utterly nasty comment about how this woman read my blog to find out information about triple negative breast cancer but instead found a whole mess of me whining about this and that. And furthermore, if she were Steve, she would either kill me, herself or in the least, run as fast as possible away from me.

Well that was a day brightener wasn't that?

I didn't respond but just deleted it.

Not long ago, someone with the same unusual name commented again only this time much more positively so apparently she stuck around and decided I wasn't so bad after all.

I understand that not everybody will like me. I am crabby sometimes and opinionated but I honestly try to be nice to people. I do have friends so at least some people like me. My kids seem to want to be with me. And Steve,despite what my poster thinks he should do, seems devoted to me.So who cares what some woman from who knows where thinks of me?

But it is a shock when I find out that someone genuinely does not like me. I must have offended this person but I really, really don't have a clue to how. Yep, I must be on that spectrum (slow to pick up on social clues until they become so obvious). Just move on Sue, you may say. Lots of other people in the world..
But now, I find myself in a really bad spot and it makes me sad (and mad at myself for not seeing this in advance). If I had only known......

You are such an amazing woman! please don't let the negative comments get you down. It says much good about you that you even pay attention to this person's comments.
