Never let haters stop you

Last Update: August 03, 2018

Today I woke up to a comment full of hate that really made me upset when I read it. It's the most hateful comment I have received so far, here it is:

He (not showing his name for privacy reasons) calls me a scammer without having any real proof. If I was a scammer, perhaps I would be making more money. WA members who know what my site is and have read some of my posts know that I'm not a scam artist.

For your information, the "scam" he's talking about is this awesome platform we're on, but he doesn't have any real proof as I said. He's judging without giving me any logical argument.

And well, you can read the rest of the comment... who does he think he is? If he hates me this much, why did he spend his time on writing this harmful comment? Who knows if the real scammer is him and he's mad at me for having exposed that scam lol.

I never thought I would receive a comment like this but I guess you never know how much hate some people can have. I will try to take this comment with a pinch of salt because this person doesn't even know me personally. I guess I should not even give him a response, right?


I will remember the positive comments that come from people who have taken the time to read my posts and thank me. Comments like this:

Never let negative comments like the one I have received stop you from what you are doing. What people say and do says a lot about them, not you.

"Carrying hate in your heart will only block you from blessings."

"Hate is a terrible thing. It's a wasteful, stupid emotion. You can hate someone with all your heart, but it'll never do them a bit of harm. The only person it hurts is you. You can spend your days hating, letting it eat away at you, and the person you hate will go on living just the same. So, what's the point?"

"And if you've ever been held down before
I know you'll refuse to be held down anymore!
Don't you let nothing, nothing
Stand in your way!"

Continue putting in the effort and time just like you have been doing. You know your purpose so don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Have a profitable and great weekend! =)

Good Morning Miren,

This is definitely not a nice way to start a day, I fully agree and I also would be upset if it happened to me.
You have 2 options, or delete or write a polite little answer back to this person.
I am sorry to read your hateful opinion of me but as it is obvious you have not read my post and neither know me the only thing I can say is I pity you.
It is probably best to let a couple of days pass so you have time to cool down.
I hope you will have a nice weekend.

Thank you Taetske for your answer, I'm actually thinking of modifying the comment so that it looks positive lol.
What city do you live in? In less than two weeks I'm going to the south of Spain =)

When we do our best to live with honesty and integrity, we can live with a clear conscience.

Just do your stuff in the most decent way you can and ignore the others.

You have probably notified WA of the comments?

Comments like the one above aren’t necessary and a little disturbing but there is so much bla bla bla out there!

We all have so much going on with so many frustrations, some people may snap at some point.

Move on and do your thing. Keep your cool!

Hi Wayne,

You are right, you can sleep well at night knowing that your intentions are genuine.

No, I haven't notified WA of the comments because these comments are not from WA members. I got the comments organically.

Yeah, I understand we can snap at some point, but it's not ok to bring other people down to feel better.

Anyway, I'll try to forget about that comment. Have a great day :)

Shoo, Miren, I would have been devestated to receive a comment like this. It's verbal abuse and completely out of line.
Well done for taking the higher ground. Personally, I wouldn't have approved it or engaged with the commenter by replying. I don't want that kind of energy on any of my sites.

It's normal, anyone who has good intentions would feel like that... I usually reply to all comments even the ones that are not that positive, but some of them actually constructive so I also reply to them.
But this one has nothing constructive so I don't think I'll approve it because I don't want that toxic energy on my site, just like you said.

Don't let it get to you. That guy obviously has a problem.

I commend you for taking the high ground on this. What a horrible thing to say/write to someone! I think I would be mortified if I ever received a comment like that. Hold your head high, you know you are doing good!

Best wishes,
Karin

It's easy to feel sad with comments like that, but there are people just like that, who have no empathy or consideration...
The good comments are the ones that keep me going.

Thank you Karin, best wishes to you too =)
