Last evening, my best friend Rebel, drew my attention to a posting on IG. It seemed that a young lady we both follow, was ranting about a woman who had sent her a care package. She apparently has a shop, and claimed this woman ordered something from her shop, merely to get her address. Then this "cruel" woman decided to send her a care package. When she has the young lady if she had received it, she began to rant about how the woman was stalking her on social media.
I left a comment on her IG, mentioning that for someone who claims to be "Christian" and sells things online, that this is pretty ridiculous. If you buy/sell things online, people can get your address. Even if you don't, there are creepers out there. Ask my BFF Rebel, who went through a REAL stalker situation that ended in both a scary and violent way. Stalking is a crime. If it's happening, call the police. However, I don't think the police are going to be concerned about a care package unless it has a dead lamb in it, or is filled with explosives. If you don't want the package, just refuse it. Easy as that.
So, after I made this remark, I received a barrage of bullshit from "Christian" moms, calling me a hater (super mature), reposting pictures of my comment on their IGs, and bullying me, as well as Rebel. Let me say one thing, and if it bothers you, you never have to read this blog again. I am a vehement atheist. However, that does not mean that I do not subscribe to "Christian moral pillars" such as honesty, integrity and kindness. One of my BIGGEST, KINDEST most AWESOME blog pals is a Christian. She and I have never even had the "religion" discussion, because it doesn't matter. We support each other, we love each other, and encourage each other. To me, that's as "Christian" as it gets.
Let me tell you something about myself, if you don't already know by now. I'm a young lady who speaks her mind, and if I see something that I think is whack, I'm going to say something about it. I even told one of the biggest bloggers in the sphere (or so she thinks) that the plugs she buys are great but "expensive." She proceeded to rip me a new one and tell me that I could always use a coupon code, which just so happened to be the one that gives points to her rep code. No thanks selfish brat.
Hiding behind "the cross" and saying rude things to me on IG is probably not what Jesus would have wanted, but I'm not worried about Jesus really. I was educated at a Christian college, and received my degree from that University. I done learned me my scripture. I know what kind of energy I put out there, I know what kind of person I am and I love it. I make no bones about it.
What these women, these MOTHERS were admonishing me with, telling me I
am a bad person, telling me to mind my own business, really shocked me.
The original seller whom I commented on, was holding a anti-self-harm
phone case in her last picture, which cracked me the hell up. I have
been a self-harmer since childhood, and still struggle with it as an
adult. No phone case ever saved me. Kindness and understanding helped
me, and as far as I know, those are both Christian values. These women all seemed to demand that I give Miss I-Don't-Like-Social-Media a "heartfelt" apology.
Well here it is: go fuck yourself.
