One Nasty Comment Ruined Her Day

I was chatting with some of the ladies in my This Girl Means Business® Facebook Group recently and one lady said she had been totally thrown off track because someone had left a horrible comment on her Facebook page about her business (the silly thing is the commenter isn’t even a customer).

This comment had been left the previous day so our lady had not slept at all, had agonised over what to do, had taken it to heart and was really, really upset.

All this, despite the fact that she had over a hundred lovely comments saying how fantastic her products and services are.

Isn’t it amazing how one nasty comment can ruin your day? Or your month? Or take over your life, paralyse you indefinitely and give your mental health a severe bashing?

It’s always that one, nasty, insidious, evil little comment that consumes your brain and makes everything else pale into insignificance. It is always there, at the front of your mind, stealing your joy and your energy and stopping you seeing all the good things.

One messed-up person leaving a comment designed to hurt and inflame you, that takes over your life and your brain and makes you forget all the GOOD people out there.

PLEASE don’t let that one small-minded, nasty little comment, just a few evil little words have the power to affect your life so severely.

Don’t hand over the keys to your happiness to one negative person.

Remember how many people love you and your business.

Remember the good you do in this world.

Remember the happiness you bring to others.

Remember the difference you make, to so many people.

Remember you’re an amazing person running a business when others wouldn’t dare

You are brave and tough. You are amazing and clever. You are resilient and adaptable. You are reading this for a reason – it’s meant for YOU.

I am so proud of you – running a business is HARD and you’re a living, breathing example of everything that’s good about it.

Keep going. Ignore the trolls.

Delete the negative stuff – you don’t need it in your life.

You’re not alone (come join my group if you need moral support from people who get it This Girl Means Business®) and remember why you are doing this.

Big hugs. Love, Claire xx

    I’ve had a similar issue, but it was a negative review on my FB page and again by a person who was neither a client or anyone I I know. I did look at her profile and noticed it only had a couple of photos with no info! I replied to the comment because I could not delete it!
    So it reduced my 5 star rating down to 4!!! ☹️
