Occasionally Nasty People Spout off

It never fails to amaze me how some people you don’t even know can make such hurtful comments about me. I recently read a blog comment regarding my professional speaking. Now, this blogger was commenting on another blogger’s blog, a known cyber thug and self-absorbed self-righteous social media paparazzi nut.
I read the blogger’s comments. What she said was hurtful and fairly ridiculous. She made assumptions and comments that clearly were unsubstantiated opinions without any actual basis in fact.
My speaking may be unconventional but my stories and parables are from my own real life experiences and based on truthful events from my life.
Just because others have had different experiences or haven’t had such experiences, does not make my own untrue or less meaningful.
I don’t get why some people take pleasure in hurting others? Could it be based on something that hurt them from their own childhood or their own failings or perhaps their own feelings of inadequacy?
This person even went as far to comment on my shoes… And she said they were cheap. Just goes to show how little some people know. My shoes are Italian Ferragamo’s and they cost about $700 a pair just to be factual.
She then mistakenly commented on my coffee table book, titled the “Theoretical History of the Knights Templar” as if I had portrayed that to be my soon to debut first fiction novel, which by the way is titled, “the 9th Templar.”
Obviously she doesn’t pay attention to facts. My other book was just a fact book from my research on the Templars. Wow I wish critics would get it right once in a while.
Facts are just too difficult to grasp I guess. The real facts are some people will find fault in everyone and anyone they disagree with. Their perspective is always slanted towards negativity and malicious intent. We can’t stop them from their vicious and hurtful comments, but it is good to look at their history of bashing other folks and just consider the lack of credibility of the source of such nasty people and come to your own conclusions.
As for my own life, I have sure never claimed to have made the best choices always in some matters, but I have never made any choices I am ashamed of. The global meltdown hurt many of us and I was no different than any other during that time. My own career went through dynamic change as most of our major projects failed to find capital, as did most of the real estate projects in our country. These failures were in no way attributable to my work or choices.
My hope is that people will take to heart the message I am discussing in my speeches. You can’t stop living during the chaos of the journey. There is never a perfect time to invest in your own better quality of life. Actions are what matter. Taking action to start today will in my opinion create a much happier and healthier quality of life for folks.
One thing I practice is that concept. Even while my own life went through economic upheaval, I continued to invest in my family, their vacations so we could remain close and have some fun. These cyber thugs blast me for this and for my continued investment in my family during these past economic hardships, but if you think about it, that is exactly what I discuss and recommend in my speeches. So, in fact I am practicing exactly what I advocate. I fail to see the fault in that platform.
In conclusion, I will never allow others to dictate my beliefs, determine my capabilities or constrain me from mine and my family’s choice to live a great quality of life.
