One of my favorite bloggers of all times is a very talented person. Her writing is amazing, and she is a wonderful human being. I don’t know her in person but from what she writes, it is obvious that she is a strong, resilient, courageous and honest person.
She is also very sincere, and this is one of the reasons I like her blog so much. This blogger offers an unparalleled kind of honesty about her life, and that is very inspiring to me.
So when I saw a post of hers in my blogroll where she is sharing her frustration over her (very difficult) financial situation, I decided to head over to her blog and leave a comment of support. I know how hard it is to dig oneself out of financial trouble, and all one can do is offer words of support and encouragement in such a situation. I almost never comment on blogs these days because I have no time at all, but here I just wanted to say something good to this person.
When I got to the post, though, I discovered that the comments had been closed. I read the comments left there before the blogger chose to shut down the conversation and was too appalled for words. People had started chastising her in condescending and offensive ways and practically attacked somebody whose only crime was to be honest about her life. I find this completely disgusting. What’s wrong with such people? Are they so miserable in their lives that they need to pound on others to feel better about their stupid vapid existences?
So since the comments are closed and I know she reads this blog, I want to say this to her:
Fie, you are amazing. You work extremely hard, harder than most people I know. This is a very tough situation, and it’s horribly unfair that such good, hard-working people as you and your husband should be in it. I’m sorry that some commenters were so disgusting to you. I’m sorry you have to struggle so hard. I wish you the absolute best.
