I mentioned last week that I was going to be featured in the Boston Herald. Excited was not an accurate enough word to describe how I felt. Well, the article was in yesterday's Herald and as great as it was, a few negative (and I mean negative) comments completely ruined the experience for me.
My article was about Moms Saving Money. Awesome. I figured there would be comments about the article related to the whole Extreme Couponing debacle. I also figured there would be comments about my choice to be a stay at home mom (work at home mom, technically). I never, ever thought there would be comments about my appearance.
I took the day yesterday to digest the harsh, mean, cruel comments. My family and friends rallied. A few moms on Twitter even attempted to comment on the article, but their comments weren't posted (hmmmm?).
Last night I took some time to really think about the whole thing. You know what I decided? I decided to say Screw Off to those people. I will rise above the negativity. After all, celebrities deal with this kind of stuff all of the time. I'm happy to be in the company of celebs :)
Have you ever run into a situation where people were super mean? How did you handle it? I'd love to hear your take on this whole thing.
