How to best handle negative or hateful commentors

I wanted to let everyone know that my goal going forward is to simply ignore those people that are negative.  I’m not just talking a difference of opinion either.  Everyone has a right to their own opinion and I respect that.

What I’m referring to are those people that have it in there head that I’m a bad person and a terrible parent. 

These people simply don’t understand what’s going on and are either taking things out of context or simply not bothering to read more in depth before posting their negative feedback. 

These comments are pretty easy to spot because they are usually focused on the same thing, regardless of whether or not it’s relavent to the topic being discussed. It’s like a scratched record.

This probably happens to every blogger at one time or another. 

In the past, I’ve always felt the need to defend myself and my family. However, I’ve learned that many times this is pointless and quite often fuels the fire.

Nothing I say or do will ever change their mind and while I find that sad, there’s nothing I can do about it. I’m simply not going to waste my time anymore and I’m not going to let them get to me.

I would encourage everyone not to even dignify these  comments with your time and attention.

I honestly feel bad for these people and I wish them the very best but I will no longer engage with them.

If your a blogger, how do you deal with negative or troll commentary? How about in real life? We can all learn and grow from each others experiences, so please share.  🙂
