A few weeks ago I wrote an article titled, Overcoming the Uneasiness of Telling People About My Child With Special Needs . As usual, I shared my post to various groups on social media. In one group there were a few people who were angry about my post. There was the Facebook angry sign, as the comments expressed dissatisfaction with what I wrote. Someone shared that they didn’t understand how someone could be ashamed of a child with special needs.

Most recently, I wrote a post titled, Stop Complaining – There is a Mom Who Would Love To Have Your Problems . I received some positive responses, as well as some unfavorable feedback.  A few shared their thoughts, believing that I was not sensitive to the feelings of parents that did not have children with special needs, which is definitely not true.

During the time I have blogged, I understand that people will not agree with my post. As much as I try to express myself correctly, be clear and transparent, as well as use the correct words, people may not like it.  Someone may finish reading my post and feel offended and decide that they don’t like me.  There will be people who don’t leave positive comments or they may leave a negative one. And, I have come to a place where I am all right with that.

As much as I am thankful for my readers and appreciate them for taking time out of their busy day to read my blog, I know everyone will not like what I write.  So, I continue to read comments and respond. I also, choose not to disagree with those comments that are not favorable.  I leave it alone and continue with my belief that everyone has a right to their feelings and opinions.

So take this as your lesson while you write and build your blog. Be thankful for all of your readers and the comments they leave. Respond lovingly to each. And if there is a comment you don’t agree with, thank them anyway, for reading and commenting. Then move on, without offense, always remembering that everyone will not agree with you.

    I can understand your point of view and you are entitled to share your viewpoints. People are way too judgmental which is why I disengaged from the FB Groups. In my case poetry groups. I got some awful racist bigoted comments. I chose not to respond because it is senseless to argue with somebody online.

    FB is a notorious hotbed of negativity and haters so except for my own personal FB page I don’t get involved with the groups. It is an invitation to disaster. Even with my own FB page people whom I thought were friends showed their ugly side and I immediately UnFriended and Blocked them.

    I’ve had to do the same with certain racist and sexist WordPress Bloggers. That is why many times I do not allow comments because I know that I have a hot temper and say exactly what I’m thinking or feeling. You never have to wonder where I stand because I will tell you up front and in your face. People just don’t know how nor do they care to be respectful.

      I was wondering why you don’t have comments on some of you post. That’s a great idea. I will agree with you. I was recently deleted from a Mommy Blogger Facebook group. I’m laughing and smiling as I write this. I’m not sure why. I was actually deleted twice. I think once, because one of my post were Christian centered and I received a comment telling me that, no religious material were allowed, so I deleted it. Then later was deleted. Then I requested again, thinking it was a mistake, and I was re-added. The next time, I wrote a post, asking people if they wanted to connect via Instagram. The post had about 200+ comments with woman putting here IG address up. Then a few days later I noticed that I was deleted and so was my post. I didn’t think anything was wrong with that. People even thanked me for that post and connect with others. I let it go and as much as I wanted to send the moderator a message asking why I was deleted, I refuse to. It’s not worth it. Yet, trust me, I know how you feel. 🙂

    Isn’t it amazing that people will post rude comments that they probably would never make face to face. It is too bad that people are unschooled in disagreeing without bashing.

      I don’t mind people leaving comments that are not in agreement with me. I want that feedback. I think what is out of line is when people become mean and rude. That is what I don’t like. 🙁

    My dear, this world is filled with all kinds of people. There are some that choose to use wisdom by taking another person’s feelings into consideration before they comment. On the other hand, some people are very selfish and self centered. As long as you’re being true to yourself, care less of what other people think or say or do. If your post content should have an impact on the life of, just one individual, you’ve done your job. Continue doing what you’ve been inspired to do.
