Everyone has their fair share of haters in life and unfortunately for me, I did meet, I mean talk to one which upsets me really as I'm not into hating people and their opinion on things. What upsets me the most was...I had A HATER!!! Like I don't think I would do anything which may offend anyone and yet this person practically BOMBARDED ME ONLINE!!! I'm all for love and peace people so when someone hates me for no apparent reason, of course I am peeved about it!!!
Here's what actually happened and you can check out whether my story is right or wrong after I've finished typing out my side of the story...I don't really know how the other person is telling this story but...I'm telling it my way and too bad if the person is reading this!!! Unknown person, if you are reading this post, do not spread hate on my blog because that's pushing my limits...You can create your own blog to share your side of the story but do not drag my name into mud because that's just so mean of you and it's defamation which means I can drag you to court if I want to. Don't mess with a future lawyer people unless you want to get burn...I won't do that because I'm a nice person unless you make me angry which I serious hope you don't.
I was always fond of the movie 'Titanic' and the soundtrack and therefore I decided to check out the songs on youtube.com of course, where else do you find songs and videos??? So, I was scrolling down the comments and noticed a debate on the facts of the real Titanic which sunk around 1912 and decided to share my knowledge too since I'm a fan of history. Not long after, I was informed through my email that someone had replied to my comment so I clicked to respond hoping for a great surprise and boy, was I surprised alright!!! Here's a little lesson to everyone who is reading this, do not insult anyone by judging them unless you do know them personally. The point is this person insulted me in every possible manner by calling me naive and blind when he/she clearly does not know me and of course, I was offended.
How can a person say that when they do not even know me??? It's like standing in front of a crowd and picking a random stranger before calling them stupid or even fat!!!
I respect everyone's opinion but this person was just too much and luckily for them, I did not respond until today as I did not want to answer while in anger to avoid any conflicts. I did answer in I believe a reasonable manner so I'm waiting for that person's respond and hopefully they do reply only in a more civil manner...I enjoy conversing by sharing my ideas or opinions online but I'm starting to see why the older generation prefers to converse face-to-face...Maybe I might have misunderstood the person's tone but it is a little hard to interpret based on writing since I can't read anyone's emotion unless I am looking at them.
Don't get me wrong because I do love the benefits of the internet however haters like the person whom I unfortunately conversed with seem to exist everywhere...
To all the haters out there,
Please do consider the harm that you will spread by intentionally insulting a person especially online. Do not spread hate but rather try to be a little considerate and try this method, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything. If you really must hate, try changing hate to at least dislike as 'hate' is such a harsh word to use.Everyone has a right to voice their opinion but let's make the internet a little better by not spoiling a person's day with insults.
Here are a few tips to haters:
1) Do not reply immediately if a comment or a post angers you, try letting yourself cool off a few days and if you really must reply, do so after your mind is clear. You might find yourself insulting someone when you respond in anger which only makes the other person more angry. In the end, everyone's angry so what's the point really???
2) Do not continue reading the post or comment. Just walk away before you get into deep waters.
3) Breathe in and out. Try to relief your anger. Count to 20 and if it doesn't work the first time, do it again until you do relax.You'll find that anger is not a solution but rather a catalyst for a worthless fight online!
You can check out my story by searching for 01-Never An Absolution-Titanic OST and conclude yourself whether I did the right thing or not...Do feel free to comment here whether you agree or disagree with the manner that I handled this situation...
That's all for now and i do hope if my hater is reading this, he does not feel offended in any way.
