Rise Above The Negativity!

'Tis another Troll has made its way into my life!

I swear...

I'm attracting more and more as the days go by!

Hi there...
I don't think we've met yet.
But...
I have met some of your friends.

Before I get started (without even getting started if that makes any sense)....

I want to thank everyone who came to defend me, my Teammates and all those affected by the hurtful words written by one single Troll! (I can't thank you enough!)

Honestly...

I'm always baffled by people who feed themselves on hurting others! (Whether you're singling out a person, something or a group of people, there's always someone that will be affected, no matter if it was the intention or not!)


I mean...

Why? (Rhetorical question)

But really...

Why?! (Again, rhetorical question)

No matter the reason (because the reasons don't matter)...

There is no excuse for being mean or judgemental! (Simply stated but you get the message!)

Now...

I realize I post pictures (most of which are public) and I have a blog (which is also public) so I know that these things may be subject to potential: 

  1. Criticism;
  2. Differing perspectives;
  3. Challenging opinions; and of course...
  4. Negativity! (It's inevitable really!)

In all of that though...

The positives have always (and will always) trump the negatives!

FUrthermore...

I cannot and will not allow myself to be consumed by words that bring nothing into my life! (I did this far too often in the past so I will never let myself be affected like that again!)

Life...

Life is too short to let people bring you down! (I realize this is often easier said than done but, I have come to learn this from unfortunate experiences and time! And don't get me wrong, I'm still building my protective shield!)

In following my passions and living the life I want to live (which is fuelled by health, fitness and overall wellness)...

I won't let ignorance stand in my way.

I know who I am as a person.

I am:

A Daughter;
A Grand-Daughter;
A Sister;
A Girlfriend;
A Friend; and, not limited to...
A Proud Athlete!

Sure am!

And no one (especially no Troll)...

Can take that away from me or tell me otherwise!

***

All in all...

This 'trolling' situation has only...

Reaffirmed my inner-strength!

BAM!

I just hope that those who might encounter these unfortunate situations Trolls can also...

Rise above the negativity!

Stay Tuned FU More On *CaNdY FiT*

  4. Way to handle it! I had one who pursued me for over a year. Just kept spamming her until she finally went away. No need to acknowledge a troll--not worth your good time!

    1. Agreed! Definitely not worth it!

  5. Trolls are there to suck the life out of those who are out there doing, instead of sitting wishing they were doing. I ignore the trolls and don't publish their hate and venom - I delete and forgot about 'em, they are not worth my time or effort. We need to focus on how awesome we feel and how our hard work is allowing us to reach our personal goals, not someone else's idea of how life should be.

    Keep on being yourself and going after your own goals and don't pay attention to those who want only to bring you back to their level.

  9. It always amazing me how people have the time and energy to be such assholes. Ignore them. Jealousy is ugly. ;)

  10. This makes me so sad that people can be so mean. I don't understand why people feel it's their duty or something to be ugly. It takes so much energy to be that way too!

    1. I won't make the time for that ugliness. Time and every waster that's for sure!

    XOXO

  12. You are unconditionally loved by so many! That light outshines the few dark devils. They try to close your shutters and from allowing your light to shine through but you have not let them! You have made the choice to live in the light. Jealousy and envy is only hurting one person, the person who feels these feelings. I am so glad you have risen above. LOVE you!

  16. Of course trolls can sit behind a screen and type nasty things. IRL would they do that?

    Rise above it and move on. And trolls, get a hobby!

  17. I haven't read any trolly comments and I am not going looking for them to give that troll anymore credence and attention, but I want to say that I am so happy that you are not going to let it bother you. My goodness, why would you? Great post and I wish you continued success and happiness. There is NO LIMIT!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You are amazing person. LIke others have said, haters are going to hate (just don't understand all the hate) but as hard as it can be, ignore ignore ignore. You have so many folks who have your back and who support you. xoxo

  19. Haters gonna hate! I used to spend way too much time on a certain hate blogger website and I realized that I did not want to be like that. Snarking on the stupidest details posted on blogs. I LOVE reading healthy living blogs and writing one as well :)
    Have a great weekend!

    1. I don't have time for trolling nonsense.

      I prefer being positive and happy.

  20. Love this! Don't waste your time and energy on people who just are worth it! I've never understood how someone can be deliberately mean! Happy Friday!

  21. Yes! So well said... we gain nothing from dwelling on the words of the trolls, although like you, I am still working to let it go. It's never fun to hear negative things... great post!

    1. It never is but we have to let it go as they feed on bringing people down. Rise above it.

      Delete
  22. You are wonderful! We all take that risk of having the trolls come after you when we post our thoughts in our public forums (our blogs) but the positive ALWAYS outweighs the negative! We always get more support than hate! This is a community of love above anything else and your attitude is inspiring :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh the trolls! Part of being a blogger, and, probably even more so for your sport. I'm so sorry to hear about the trolling, but like everyone else has said, you have a fantastic attitude to it all!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Trolls suck. You rock. I love your energy and your enthusiasm and your inspiration. No stupid troll can take that away from you nor should a stupid troll take that away from anyone.

    ReplyDelete
  25. You're a strong lady my friend...need some backup? Even though you're a beast ;) love your attitude - people who are hurtful are insecure about themselves!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love this post and I LOVE your attitude. :) Keeping being YOU! Haters are always gonna hate. They're just hating cause you're awesome and you're doing something they wish they were doing! Keep up the fabulous attitude miss! :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. YOU ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE TROLLS!!!!! I have had a couple probs with them but not as much as others. I think it has to do with them & not us.... you have so much to be proud of & such a good person that they feel the need to hate on you.

    SCREW THEM!!!!!!! :)

    Rise above as you say!

    ReplyDelete
  28. You are far above any loser to post negative crap. You are an inspiration to many - myself included! Hugs to you, rockstar!

    ReplyDelete
  29. You ARE awesome in every way! I think I've finally made it as a blogger because this past week I have had a few trolls as well. At first it hurt but then I quickly realized I define myself and nobody else. So I deleted the comements and moved on. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I missed the troll incident, but am more than positive that they were wrong in every hurtful thing they may have said to you...you are happy and positive and motivating to people! Glad to have (virtually) met you!! xo

  31. I have a SINGLE troll. One. That (luckily) hasn't tried coming around for about two weeks now, but she's TERRIBLE. She comments under different emails...made up names. She came after me after I posted a supportive tweet to a fellow FFA, and ever since, she takes the time to post terrible things about me. (Seriously...why would you attack someone for being SUPPORTIVE!?) And she follows a TON of FFAs around. (I bet you're hearing from her, too.)

    I don't understand the point in what they do. They're bound to hit people who cannot emotionally or mentally handle the negativity at some point. And why hide behind fake names? If you're so adamant about tearing someone down and think your opinions are so valid, why don't you support them enough to say them out loud with your true name?? Why gives us bloggers a hard time about wasting time writing and reading blogs? (You spend tremendous amounts of time commenting in order to *try* to bring us down, hmm?)

    I have so many questions concerning trolls, but the only way I deal with them is to literally block them from my site, ignore them, and report them if need be.

    Sorry you've had to deal with the crap. It's so unnecessary - and it's so sad that they live this way.
