Don't Feed the Trolls Tue, Apr 25, 2017
I start off my mornings with an enjoyable cup of coffee, a nice breakfast with the kiddos, and a leisurely drive to work listing to NPR. After greeting all my lovely coworkers (thanks for being awesome), I open an app that places all of our social media into one place
I jump in, the morning begins optimistically, then I get the 20th comment asking "can I take the SurvivalBelt on an airplane?" and something changes. I begin to read every comment as if they are Trolling and start to "clap back."
Right before I hit send on the well thought out "clap back" of a comment, I pause. Breathe, Nery, Breathe...remember what Rick and Cassidy taught you...
I laugh to myself...delete the comment and write something a little nicer. The moral of the story is: don't let the trolls make you into a troll, hold on to your humanity!
