How to cope with the dark side of blogging

Sharing your personal life on the internet for the whole world to see is never without risks and when it comes to blogging, there are many of us that share intimate details about our lives without a second thought. Unfortunately in the world there's a plethora of jealous people out there and the internet is the prime place for them to vent out their anger as they hide behind their keyboards. I have been lucky that throughout my seven years of writing on the internet, everything has run smoothly and I haven't been a victim of hate or trolling...until recently. Just over a week ago, I received my first troll email from a person trying to jeopardise my marriage. Part of me always knew that at some point I would get backlash for what I do, after all there's always someone in the world a little bit jealous of you, but it didn't make it any easier to digest. It honestly hit me like a thousand knives and made me want to retreat. For a few hours, I felt insecure, alone and doubted everything that I took for granted, that was until I decided that I wasn't going to let them win. Trolls, bullies, the people who hurt you are just after attention and they want you to breakdown so that they feel better about themselves. They may have taken my confidence for a few short hours, but they are not going to put me off doing what I love, what I have worked hard for and ruin the relationships of the people that mean the most to me.

Take some time out

When things are getting tough and you're feeling overwhelmed, don't be afraid to take some time out. Taking time out can help you reflect on your life as a whole, why you love what you do and the accomplishments you have achieved. It helps you put everything into perspective.

Surround yourself with your friends

Our friends can be our biggest motivators and sometimes when you're feeling down, a coffee with someone who really appreciates you can be the biggest 'pick me up' that you need. 

Carry on doing what you love

In life, there will always be haters, whether it is at work, in our personal lives or on the internet - it's unavoidable. Don't let them get the best of you, carry on doing what you love and prove them that you are stronger and better than ever before.
