Right then, I knew it was going to be a good one.
I won't dignify the gesture by putting the exact comment on here and I promptly deleted it, but basically it was someone saying that I am selfish and should think more about other people.
I was a
1) That post is the first post I wrote about the nodules growing in my neck, how scared I was about potentially having cancer which, by the way, I DO, and asked for prayers.
2) If I can't think about my own health, who will?
3) It is MY blog, so obviously I am going to talk about myself. It is a lifestyle blog where I can write whatever I want. I never claimed it would be a blog devoted to philanthropy.
4) Yeah... maybe I have been selfish for the last 6 months or so. But I have been dealing with a pretty significant health problem, which not only resulted in surgery, but completely messes with your hormone levels throwing everything off, and involves oral chemotherapy, full body scans, life long monitoring, and frequent blood tests. Pretty sure most people would agree that a little bit of selfishness is to be expected. After all, it is MY LIFE I am trying to prolong and protect here.
Then I started thinking about all the ways I DO think about and help other people. I am not going to say that I am Pollyanna or anything, but I do give my time, money, and energy to help other people. I just don't brag about it and post it on my blog because I believe good works should be done for the glory of God and therefore shouldn't be bragged about.
Furthermore, if you don't have the lady balls to put your name next to a mean comment, you should probably keep it to yourself.
And while having someone call me selfish put me in a bad mood for approximately 3.78 seconds, I then realized that getting an anonymous hate comment is the milestone which makes you an official blogger. So thank you, jerk head. I feel welcomed into the world of blogging. Please don't visit my blog again.
