Ugly on the inside

So, someone sent me a nasty rep on AW. Just for sake of being obnoxious I guess. I wouldn't have even seen it except that I had change my password because of log-in issues. But it's never fun to be blind sided by the unpleasantness of people at any time. The only possible reason they could have had to even write the rep is to be specifically mean. Which means they put a lot of thought and energy into replying to a post of mine that was buried on at least page two of the forum it was posted in.

It's funny how people now think they are entitled to be awful just because it's the Internet and they are very far away. As if their opinion is somehow supposed to crush your spirit.

Part of me would like to take terrible rep revenge upon them, but a therapist once told me "You can be right, or you can be happy" so I am trying more and more to make the conscious decision to be happy.


  1. That's a healthy conscious decision -- but I'm sure it ain't easy.

  2. I've managed to NOT do anything :)

  3. Aw, I'm sorry to hear that. What a sneaky way to get at you. But, I think you're right. They're probably over it, right? So if you let it fester...yeah. Easy advice to give,not so much to take!

  4. Well I had a mod delete it and I feel better! I'm not going to let that keep me off the forum it's a fun place to drop by and I try to make relatively positive posts.
