Recently I was threatened and bullied on social media … I’m not going to reveal who it was or where it happened… but suffice it to say, it threw me for a loop.
It was late in the evening and I was alone when the message arrived. This attack was unwarranted, way off-base, and came out of nowhere. It was evil and dark. It entered my home through a device and violated my space; my safe haven, my little piece of heaven on earth.
I spent an entire night with a stomach ache and heart palpitations. I was up having a bath at 3:00am just trying to calm myself … and I’m an adult (a very mature adult.) Imagine what the children nowadays are dealing with … it sickens me.
Luckily, I do have enough life experiences and I knew right away I needed to talk about it. One of the best ways of dealing with bullies (in my opinion) is to talk talk talk … tell trusted people. Do not internalize. But here I am a week later, still processing this bit of ugliness … still expecting the boogyman to jump out from under my bed.
As I move forward, I’m focusing on the positives in my (on-line) life, and this quote I found at thekhoolhaus.tumblr.com has helped.
I truly do just wanna go on more adventures … be around good energy … connect with people, learn new things, grow.
Just wondering … have you ever been bullied or harassed? How did you deal with it?
