I follow several people on YouTube and one of my favorites is Gossmakeupartist. He made the most relevant video the other day and I thought I’d share it. I hate to even give negative behavior any energy but this video really touched me. It was good to hear someone else goes through the same things that I do if that makes any sense. If you don’t have a blog or YouTube channel chances are you might not know how much “hate” there is out there. Let me tell you that there is a LOT.
I started on YouTube over a year ago and I went into it with so much enthusiasm and thought there would be nothing but positive happy things and interactions that would follow. I’m a dreamer and I thought if a few people watched if they didn’t like what I had to say we could have constructive debates about stuff. HA! I found out very fast that there was another unhappy element or addition to the comments section I’d have to deal with after making videos. I like Gossmakeupartist refer to them as the haters.
Now when I say hater I don’t mean someone who doesn’t like me. It’s your god given right to hate my guts and I’m good with that. But when you tell me your going to hurt me, call me a female dog, tell me how much you hate black people, or make fun of the way I look that’s just ridiculous. Most people are their own worst critics! I cringe when I watch myself, most people do! But when I don’t like something (blog or YouTube channel) I just move on. I don’t need to tell someone they suck. One of the first things you learn when you do anything is that you can’t be all things to all people. There is a certain amount of people your just right for-concentrate on THEM! Unfortunately some out there feel the need to just run off at the mouth. Here are some examples of real comments I’ve gotten…remember I get comments like this everyday so this is just a sampling of the “love” I encounter!
