“Never argue with a fool,
they will drag you down to their level
and beat you with experience”
~ Mark Twain
On my personal Facebook account, the blurb about myself states I am a published writer, award winning blogger and website author. All completely true. These are accomplishments I have achieved, through hard work, deep inner work, deep honesty and the choice to learn, grow and seek truth and wisdom.
It is okay to feel good about accomplishments. Something some insecure people don’t seem to like. Whereas, I am really happy and encouraging of other people’s accomplishments. I promote other people’s accomplishments. I promote people’s work on my website and here on this blog. I am not threatened by the success of others, I encourage the success of others.
It is interesting when commenting on posts on Facebook about news reports and current affairs and if stating something people don’t like, I receive pathetic comments e.g. ‘”go back to your award winning blog”. And name calling. *sigh. And this means they have gone to my FB profile and read up about me. Clearly, my views, have bothered them that much.

you’re not the jackass whisperer”
