In response to comments…

Just a quick post to say thank you to those who wrote supportive, helpful comments on my last vulnerable share about financial struggles I'm having in this limbo I'm in after my housemate suddenly moved out and prior to receiving my first full paycheck from my new well-paying college job which will pay several thousand dollars a month, in addition to my nonprofit and self-employment income. They mean a lot.

I also want to say that the one long-winded, hurtful, holier-than-thou, and wholly unhelpful comment I received was most definitely unwelcome. To that person, I suggest that before you share a judgemental comment like that, please consider whether you know the person well and whether you have love in your heart for them. Then consider framing your judgment or anxiety in a way that helps them reflect versus a one page diatribe on why they are fucked up. Mkay?  And no, I don't want to get into a conversation with you – please do not comment again.

  1. None of us have our stuff together. Keep moving onward, continuously improving and moving upward I always tell myself. Oh and sometimes ignore or delete negativity :)

  3. Sorry, I'm really far behind in my blog reading, so I'm late in commenting on any of this. I'm really sorry to hear about the hurtful, judgmental comment you received. You're an incredibly intelligent and hardworking person, but sometimes things just happen despite our best efforts. Sending you hugs.
