I had planned to share a recipe with you all today but this was overruled by some nasty and inappropriate comments on Facebook which I wanted to share with you.
I first had a Facebook account years ago as a teen, where I would frequently see people abusing each other in my news feed and as a result, eventually I deleted my account and lost interest in what seemed like just a forum for bullying and hatred.
Recently, I was encouraged to set up a page for my blog on Facebook and was advised that there was more security and screening measures and that it was a great tool of social media. So, I set up a page and thus reactivated my Facebook account. It was great, I reconnected with old friends and found and followed many pages of blogs that I read and love and found myself on Facebook for hours exploring a new world which did, in fact, appear much different to how it was before.
And then, today happened. And it knocked me for six. I could have avoided confrontation and not replied, but I felt I had to stand up for my corner, especially as I had been hunted down, I had simply invited this person to like the page. If you don’t like it, you simply don’t accept, right?
The worst part is that this person is a person I have known since he was a small boy and he is in fact my brother-in-law to be.
So, should this be a lesson to have not returned to Facebook? Should I delete the account? Or should I not let the haters win?
Do you come across this vegan hatred, and how do you deal with it?
Thanks for all your support my lovely readers.
