I got my first negative comment a few posts ago. I felt like I'm in one of those crime-action flicks where the authorities have accused a person of something he hasn't done and are trying to extract the confessions that doesn't exist by dousing him in cold water.
So yeah, it felt wrong. I was angry. I was really angry and I had no idea what to do next except lash back at him with a comment. But that would be wrong. I have never been a person who punches back harder when he is punched. Also I didn't want my comments section to transform into a battlefield. I knew if I reacted, he would come back with another response and so it will continue. The essence of what I wrote will be completely lost and neglected. So I decided to give him a reply being as concise and as definitive as possible. I also decided not to publish any of his comments further.
I have no idea about his intentions or motives, but I sensed a negativity. While everybody is entitled to their own opinion and have the complete right to state it, please don't overstay the welcome. You know me through this blog and what I publish on it, the rest of my life is concealed for all the appropriate reasons. By all means I'm not perfect and I don't claim to be. I have done things I'm not proud of and if I could take them back I definitely would. Given the chance to do things again, I would do certain things very differently. And this thought is not alien to anyone, we all have doubts.
If you happen to disagree to something that I have written or find it insulting, by all means leave a comment. Tell me what I wrote was wrong or inappropriate, along with the reason of why you think so. Baseless arguments are only made by fools. The whole reason Blogspot installed the comment feature was that so the readers could communicate with the author. Encourage him, criticize him, share their thoughts. I have my opinions, but that does not mean they can't be changed. I'm sure sensibility accounts for our thought process, so if you happen to hold a better opinion. By all means, come forward and express. I would seriously love to know what you have to say!
However if your only concern is to bash me or ridicule me, I can't stop you. But I don't care. Hate exists so that we learn to appreciate love. Just like evil exists so that we value the good. I don't mean to offend anyone, but that's how I believe it to be.
Also I'm thankful to the person who left the comment. I had another blog before, but it didn't have as much traffic as this one. It's been around four to five months since I've started this blog but the response is over-whelming. I really didn't expect it. The person made me realize how this blog could have gone down the same path as the previous one had it not been for you all. Yes, everyone one of you who reads my blog and comments on it. You make me feel like Gossip Girl! Kidd'in, but I am extremely thankful to you all and I really wouldn't have it any other way. I'm still going to be blogging. Infact I'll be blogging for as long as I can as much as I can, I plan to phunk you up.
