So, I have a troll issue.
Many people have recommended I ignore the commenters. Actually, I am grateful for the facts they pointed out - that I may have been treading on delicate copyright territory. (I did recognize every article by link and author, but I also copied the entire post. Berate me if you will.) Don't let anyone say I don't learn from my mistakes, or admit when I'm wrong. I have issued a public apology.
However, the judgmental tone used in the comments made me inexplicably sad. How lowly this poor woman must feel about herself to say to a total stranger "For Shame." I'm sure in some way she feels personally wronged, but I'm not certain how. The fact that she must take out her frustration with the universe on me can't bode well for her karma, I wouldn't think. Then again, perhaps she is being hurt in a way no one else can see, and truly deserves our pity.
I hope that you will join with me in taking a moment to send positive energy out into the world. Our response to such acts is often defensive, and to wish for retaliation. However, the world will not be made better by vindictiveness, only by forgiveness. In long run, we will be remembered for our compassion. It is love which will fix the world, not hate. And it must start with each person loving him or herself.
