How to Handle Negative Comments

Recently I’ve faced negative comments on my social media feed. While my immediate response was to forgive and delete, in time my ego got the best of me. I found myself stuck in the discomfort of negativity and personal attacks from people I’d never met. I felt sad, hurt, and worst of all, defensive. But rather than lace up my boxing gloves, I chose to find the lesson in the Internet backlash. I called on a message from A Course in Miracles: “In my defenselessness my safety lies.” In this video I share my experience and the spiritual solutions I used for handling negative comments.

If there's something I don't like I think of Ctrl, Alt, and Delete!

No matter what you do, you can't please everyone. Some people will try to get you riled up because they are cynical.

very very good vblog. I try never to give negative comments because that is just not me, I love the sunny blue sky, glass half-full approach. But sometimes I look or think back on what I said/wrote and SEE more negative than I intended because of the way I wrote it, or maybe due to something that happened that day that affected me. Regardless I must accept that and move on. Sometimes it's just happens when you write or speak quickly. Thanks for a great one.
