Pinterest Officially Wins In the Troll Category


So in case you didn’t know, I run a pretty successful Facebook page with just a little over 600K fans. It took me a few years to build it up that high and I’m pretty damn proud of myself for accomplishing this.

I share mostly inspirational posters, some sarcastic and fun ones and blogs from my website. It’s mostly a fun Facebook page with tons of motivation and inspiration. One of my goals in life is to inspire and motivate peeps and I think I do that well (if I must say so myself 😉)

Every now and then I get ‘the’ comment. You know the one. Some douchebag wants to vomit all over a happy poster because it pisses them off. Whatever. Get your own fucking page Felicia.


This very rarely happens, but it does. I also get the odd person who really hates when I say ‘fuck’ in any poster. Ban and delete takes place when that happens.

Girl, you on the wrong page.

Now I also run a pretty successful Pinterest account (almost 5 million monthly views and 15K followers). Over there I literally just regurgitate everything from my Facebook page. Love, peace, joy, hope, you get the idea.

I’m really only here to spread cheer and love ❤ and it’s hella fun to do that.

Over on Pinterest there is also a comment section where people can comment on the post. I don’t even look at that anymore. It’s depressing. Honestly.

I remember the first time I got a negative comment on one of my inspirational posters. I was a little shocked to be honest. “Wow this happens here too?” And then after I read the comment I was like “man you got some issues”. I didn’t reply to it. I just ignored it.

You learn to just ignore the haters, really.

Then I noticed it just kept happening. A lot. Now of course not everyone leaves comments and some of them are actually nice. But the others? Phew!

Pinterest peeps. What’s up man? Why you so angry all the time? I have never seen so many negative comments on any of my work, except on Pinterest.

I’m afraid to go look over on Reddit so I’m just going to pretend that nothing happens over there. A girl can only take so much negativity.

But this whole Pinterest thing got me thinking. (Man you guys are nasty.)

There are so many broken people in the world and it’s really so sad. So many are angry, hurt, frustrated. I used to be one of them. I used to be mad at the world and spewed venom any chance I could get.

But I changed. I grew. I learned. And I started to heal all my broken pieces and start loving again. Even myself. ❤

I’ve learned to ignore these Pinterest trolls and just carry on my merry way. You can’t react to every negative comment (and you shouldn’t anyway) and I have no desire to. The only thing that heals hate is love, not more hate.

Love heals broken hearts. And there are a lot of broken souls in our world. Love is the only thing that heals. I believe that we can heal each and every broken heart by giving them love and lots of it.

The world clearly needs more love ❤

But honestly, Pinterest dudes, lighten up. 😵

I love you, honest I do ❤

Peace and Love
