My Personal Journey: Insta-Troll

I’m old? Really? I didn’t know.


No, it did not hurt my feelings. The doctors cut them out while removing other crap.

If you jump on over to my Instagram, you’ll see that a gem of a young man blasted me for being old. FOR. BEING. OLD. Did he think I didn’t know I was in my fifties? It’s like pointing out a scar. Did you think I didn’t know it was there?

Let’s run down the list:

  • Wrinkles? Check
  • Gray hair? No, mine is a beautiful silver.
  • Body pain for sleeping wrong? Good Lawd, yes.
  • A hand full of meds each morning because my body hates me? Absolutely.
  • Grumbling about young ‘uns? Flippin whipper snappers. Yup.

I’m not a spring chicken and am cool with it. I have earned every sign of my age. So, what do we do about trolls?

Kill ‘em with kindness.

I read a story where a community in Africa pours love and kindness on someone when they have done something wrong. They don’t spit vitriol back at them. These amazing people remind this person how great they are. They list all the good they have done, reminding them of their own value. When you see and understand your value you learn the value of others.

So, to the young man who pointed out the obvious…

I hope you have a wonderful day and remember that people have feelings. I wish you well.

Polish your sparkle and keep twirling.

Find joy. Be joy. Enjoy.

I’m always looking for new friends!

I am...interesting. I am a writer, dreamer, mom, wife, veteran, friend, villain, and the wearer of many hats, but I don't look good in hats- go figure. I LOVE TO WRITE. I want to tell stories. I want to make you laugh, cry, and scare the crap out of you, and make you ask "why the hell did you do that?" I want to make you cheer my characters on or want to shake the crap out of them for things they say and/or do. I want to bring you along for the ride. Ready? Set?...READ!!!
