Angelface, there will always be trolls.
There will always be those who prowl ze interwebs + cubicles + classrooms,
looking for victims or vicious amusement.
But the worst troll isn’t out-there.
She’s in your head.
But here’s the absolutely fantabulous thing about her …
she feeds on attention.
She cannot …
live/survive without it.
So ignore her.
No trying to reason/explain/quieten her down.
JUST IGNORE HER.
Walk away and switch gears.
Put your absolute undivided attention on ThatThingYouDo.
Revel in the luscious energy of your special gift to the world.
Read your “I Am Awesome” file
(you do have one, right?)
Devote your BEing to being fah-bulous.
Because you ARE
and she isn’t.
And the minute you own that,
All hail to the Troll Slayer.
PS Yes, she’ll probably respawn tomorrow.
But she’ll won’t be as strong as she was today.
And you’ll be stronger.
PPS Hat-tip to Seth Godin for the inspiration.
My fancrush continues.
