Then there are those that simply disagree with you, which is great, because people can express their opinions freely.
What happens when people are simply mean to you for no reason?
I had a recent experience where someone I am connected with on twitter replied to my tweet and said something mean.
My feelings were really hurt!
What right did they have to say something like that to me! They don’t even know me!
What was even more ridiculous I realised was this was someone I had never met, never laid eyes on, or spoken to ever in my life!
Yet their words cut to my heart!
The power of hurtful words is more than you can imagine.

Listen to this podcast and hear what hateful things people can do online.

I decided to ignore that person.
If it gets any worse I will have to apply stricter measures.

If you are being hurt by trolls, delete, unfriend, block.
Over and over if you have to!
