I was not expecting to do this post today, and normally I would pass on such an experience, however yesterday I came across a very disturbing post, I am a very positive person as many of you will know, and I also understand that others are not me, I also apply the Law of Allowance in my life whenever I can, but appreciation and respect to me are very important. I honestly feel that I have never gone over that line, on my blog, or for that matter in my life, and again I understand that others are not me. We all have a rant from time to time, and things become larger than life, who has not experienced this, very few I would think.

I also believe that everyone is free to write and express themselves how they feel, but I have one question, can anyone, except the person concerned feel qualified to rate your pain, trauma, sadness etc.,? As far as I am aware this is an impossibility, and comparisons should not be made, what gives anyone the right to judge your experiences (If they know you had them) let’s not forget, that not everyone talks about them, it is a free decision, and if people feel relieve in taking expression as a therapy I would 100% support them, always but, I would also like to feel the same respect and appreciation to be returned. Everyone to their own right ?


I feel that certain feeling and emotions we have cannot be measured, the intensity only we know, can we measure love ? no, many of us have children, we know they are our life, but you cannot bottle that ! and pain, stress, trauma etc., is exactly the same, I feel, you feel, who feels most ? NO ONE CAN SAY !! So to do a written attack on the people or systems of people who support you in my book is a NO NO! These are the people that show on your blog page under like and comments, and are mentioned but not in name, but respect you enough to give their time and kind thoughts.



Well, that’s me, I just had to say my piece, it really, I suppose the word would be “upset”me, that I read what I read. I only hope that you all understand where I am coming from today, I know it is not my normal post, but when asked by new bloggers about blogging, I always tell them to be themselves, and today this is me! 

I thank you all for reading, and most of all I thank you for your respect and appreciation that you all have for each other. I realise we don’t all live in a perfect world,  if it’s good for us, that’s good enough, it takes so little to be kind to others, let’s just keep spreading the blogosphere love <3.

  1. I am so sorry someone upset you this much! Unfortunately, there are some people who feel compelled to share their own negativity with others. The great writer and great person Maya Angelou once said in an interview that when she encountered a negative person, she felt as if hair was being pulled from her head. Her advice was to stay away from them and not listen. I guess that means not reading as well! Be well, dear, and have a great weekend!

    Great blog..

    And my opinions is we can’t feel and know another feeling.
    We just have to take their words for it..
    so if you don’t have any encouraging words for that person heartfelt emotions.. that they are sharing..
    Don’t comment..
    to everyone.. whatever they are experiencing.. is so real for them…and we just have to be compassionate enough even though we can’t understand their needs to be so emotional 😭 about certain situations..

    Great post.. and I’m in complete agreement with your article.. good 😊 job..
    respect ✊ and appreciation of everyone.. is very important indeed


  4. I know you are a very strong person and no one can upset you for more than the time you take to talk about it in a post like this one. Stay sweet for us.


  5. Brooke, I have a strong suspicion this was written in response to my rant post, so I wanted to apologise to you for my post affecting your emotional equilibrium (if it did). I did expect it might ruffle some feathers, but I’m truly sorry it affected you like this. It is true, I don’t know about your past history. The post was not aimed at you personally. It was the culmination of many months of blog interactions, concerning myself and other diagnosed PTSD survivors, and I wanted to differentiate between traumatised and non traumatised people, who psychologically require different things and are helped by different responses which are more validating. I made it clear that pain is still pain and it really hurts, but traumatic injury is much harder to process and move on from in the long term, because of the neurological changes. I still stand by what I said, but am genuinely sorry it caused offence to you. A person really upset me the other night, so the rant was precipitated by that, and not by you. I did not respect or appreciate that particular person, because of the way he interacted with me, and as a sensitive, it is essential I protect myself from unneccary emotional harm. Many people have upset me on my blogs so that was me answering back, hopefully making people reflect. I also want to defend my PTSD survivor friends who feel the same way as I do. I won’t say anymore than this, but I do respect you for expressing your feelings, you’re fully entitled to express them, and I have no hard feelings towards you ok- hugs ❤
