Its amazing how quickly someone can switch from kind to cruel.
Its happened a lot when I'm speaking to people online.
One moment we are chatting and they seem kind, understanding, out to help the world.
Then I manage to flip their switch, usually because I forget to reply by getting distracted by the million other things I'm doing (like home educating, running a buisness, tidying the home all as a single parent),
Or maybe I just sat down to watch a movie with my daughter... which I'm fully entitled to do.
Why people think I owe them my immediate attention, especially after speaking less than a day is beyond me.
I've been up working since 7:30 this morning and have just been sent over a load of long messages telling me to pull my head out of my arse, and how I'm just attention seeking and selfish for choosing to take my daughter traveling on adventures indeed of rescuing animals 🙄.
All because I didn't reply last night to a message that wasn't even a question... I wish we could all try to have a bit more compassion and understanding for each other.
If someone doesn't reply and this leaves you feeling angry and hateful, why not reflect on why that hurt you so much.
Insulting that person and trying to ruin their day won't help you.
It won't make you feel better about whatever it is that's hurting you.
It's just spreading hate in a world already suffering from too much apathy.
No one owes you their time, attention or love, that fulfilment comes from within.
If someone offends you by not giving you what you want, it's likely because you're not giving it to yourself.
I understand you are hurting for reasons that have nothing to do with me, and I feel for you.
You deserve kindness, patience and happiness, but so do I.
Try to fill the world with love, and this includes yourself.
Fill yourself with love.
And to this person who may be reading with another unblocked account,
I forgive myself for not replying to you.
And forgive you for the spiteful things you said.
Love yourself so much that you don't care when it feels others don't. 💗
