W is for Willingness - #AtoZChallenge

W is for Willingness...

When creating a presence in cyberspace you have to have a willingness to know that there will be naysayers out there that feel comfortable “bashing” others from the comfort behind their keyboards. Ignore them I say and take the willing step in remaining positive and repelling their negative energy. Let them spiral down that black hole of negativity as you willingly side step them and come out glowing.

Do you have a willingness to repel the naysayers? If yes, what do you do to repel them? 

Thanks for visiting!

  1. I agree with Alex - you need to ignore them on move on. Although, there are times when I still get caught up in the negativity for a while before I remember to move on.

  2. The advice is "Don't feed the trolls". Although there are some that are persistent. =( A friend had someone leave a troll comment once and she gave the sweetest reply with smily faces. The troll didn't come back.

  3. I just had occasion to deal with one of these. I tried a reasonable exchange with one email, but dropped it as soon as I saw the doubled angry reply. Too many wonderful people out there to put any time into those who are so ready to be snarky,

  4. Glad you disengaged before it got too heated. So not worth it!

  5. I do not like when people bash others. It is okay to have differing opinions, but these need to be expressed in a constructive and thoughtful matter.

  6. I've really only had naysayers in the form of judges in blog contests. Those sting.
