Life can be so hard sometimes. Fights happen, disagreements spiral out control, you bump heads with someone unintentionally, and sometimes you don’t do anything at all to stir conflict and yet, before you know it, you are surrounded by all kinds of negativity. Worse yet… you might even be listening to someone’s passive aggressive comments.
Passive aggressive behavior is one of my biggest pet peeves. I’m one of those people that would much prefer it if you sent a message and directly approach me with a problem than to “vaguebook” about me, where I can do virtually nothing.
I’m seeing more and more of this on Facebook and it’s disheartening. Most of the time, I don’t have a clue who is being written about… but you can tell that there is most definitely ONE person being targeted with the post. If this is happening to you, know that you are definitely not alone!
I remember when my “facebook friends” would do this to me… write a vague facebook status that was obviously about me, yet they named no names and never came to talk to me directly. It was frustrating. It was hurtful. It was annoying. And I wasted a LOT of time and energy thinking about it.
Don’t give anyone that power of your life.
It’s easy to hide behind a keyboard while writing snarky comments, filling the newsfeed with criticism and complaints that you honestly don’t have the balls to say in person. I guarantee that 99 out of 100 snarky commenters absolutely couldn’t spew their nastiness directly to someone’s face… so just keep reminding yourself of that if you’re someone who is the subject of said posts.
I think most of the Negative Nancy’s of social media are just sad, lonely people who honestly can only feel better if they try to beat successful people down and make negative comments. What it boils down to is that they are jealous of you. Don’t react… it will only backfire. Trust me.
Some people have so little going on in their lives that they would rather discuss yours. Accept that as a fact of life and move on. Don’t allow other people’s negativity to bring you down. That’s what they want.
Evil rears its ugly head the hardest when you are happy and successful. Be ready for that always. Then straighten your fucking crown and walk away like the Queen that you are!
