Social Media, Don’t Try To Win Over The Haters – Not The Jack Ass Whisperer


donkeywhispererfarm

For those of you who have been following my blog since 2010 you know how hard I have worked to create my new business Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC. I try really hard to help people, pray and inspire people and yet I have found some pretty amazing things out about complete strangers especially on FB.

Seems no matter the post, or even just a photo I share their is always a few negative comments, attacks. Your photo is not straight, I took it with my cell phone.  I do not like your rules. I have a group named ON DONKEY TIME on FB, Secret group now. Rules are always given before entering my FB group named On Donkey Time.

The photography group I was in did not remove the attacker so I left the group. Groups need rules and negative people who attack should be shown the barn door. When people attack me or members on my group they are removed. Oh the peace when the trolls are gone.

Select Negative People Hate Success to read another blog’s approach on this issue.

Copied from the blog above

“The form of the harm can be much more complicated too. People can incorrectly take a comment you make out of context (which in some states could potentially be ground for a false light claim); they can share hurtful opinions (which are generally protected speech under defamation law); or expose a truth that is less than flattering to you (a statement isn’t defamatory if true).”

It’s never fun, no matter what, when someone is negative about something that makes you happy, proud, or excited. But along with death and taxes, it’s a given in our society. Here are some more ideas on how to handle the haters:

  • Don’t engage. This is the simplest, most straightforward, and easy way to subtly say “no thanks,” to negative people. They can be all pouty, mopey, angry, etc etc all they want, but you are having no part of it. Offer a smile, shrug, and move on to better things.
  • Remember that personal attacks aren’t always so personal. Again, negative people can lash out, be critical, or downright mean because it’s simply the path of least resistance for those emotions. It’s much easier to be mad at the world than to look inward, find the problems there, then take appropriate action to reach a solution.
  • Be in charge of your own positivity. The easiest way to let negative people get to you is by putting too much value into their opinions and not enough into your own. You don’t need outside validation for everything you create, every goal you make, or every success you enjoy. If you need feedback, it’s best to get it from someone you know is honest – and happy with themselves, as well. This way, you can get any constructive criticism you may need, but without the bite of hatefulness that will come from someone only too eager to point out the weaknesses of others.

And if you find you’re the negative person? It’s okay. Honestly. But it’s time to understand that you are powerful, capable, and strong. Here’s how to focus on the positive and leave your negativity, hate, and anger behind:

  • Take action. You are in charge here. You can make the change you want to see in your own life. Yes, it may be hard – it may be really hard – and you might fail before you succeed. But keep at it! If Plan A didn’t work, think of a new approach and try Plan B. Believe in yourself and start putting one foot in front of the other.
  • Surround yourself with positive people. Positivity is contagious! Catch a little for yourself by seeking out positive, driven, motivated, and inspired individuals. Be happy for them when they find success – and enjoy how good it feels when others are happy for you when you are successful.
  • Be grateful. It’s so easy to get caught up in what’s wrong or bad in life. But you’re missing out on all the good that’s happening around you – it’s like you’ve got blinders on and you can only see the negatives. So take a moment every day to be grateful for what you do have, where you have been successful, and for what’s going right.

Why Do People Attack Others On Social Media?

Well it’s easy, to get angry with someone you do not know and try to make them feel bad as there is no accountability. Doubt people would talk the way they do to others from behind their computer face to face. “Our world is becoming more and more disconnected from social interactions, fb, and the other social networks as they make it feel like you are connected to the outside world but really nothing is the same as being in a relationship with a living human or animal.” Hiding behind electronics and beating another human up for trying to start a business is really sad.”

Do these insults bother me?

No they do not, I look to JESUS CHRIST my Lord and Savior for my self-esteem, I continue to try to make the world a better place for donkeys, horses and mules. I pray for the people who are so negative they must beat up others on social media and keep pressing towards my goal of building my business Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC. I continue to thank GOD I can talk, think, write and use my brain and not be negative. So much nicer to pay it forward then tear another down. I seriously feel sorry for people who do this.

My advice to you if you encounter this?

Walk away from trolls, yes I said trolls as these are people who work all day to destroy anything good in the world. Their job is to make you feel sad, cry and miserable. What they don’t understand is no one has this power over another human. I must give the power of my self-esteem away and I will never do this. I am a child of Jesus Christ. I am grateful GOD has given me the ability to withstand all I have survived. I pray for the negative people in our world who make bad comments about a photo that we share oh it’s not straight or its this or that. Really, find another way to make yourself powerful other than putting another person down.

How to handle attacks on social media?

Select Ideas To Protect Your business and Reputation

Sharing on social media is no fun when no rules are in place, make sure you are on a group that has rules.

Make sure if you join a group you have good administrators who remove trolls and stop attacks. If you have no rules the trolls will destroy anything positive and pretty soon they are the only ones talking on the group as the rest of the group is afraid of them.

Enjoy life, stay On Donkey Time, my business logo where life is slow and relaxed, like On Beach Time.

The bible is clear stating GOD listens to our prayers and he releases the angels to go to work the minute one of his children cry out for help.

Watch your thoughts!

It is very important to be aware of your thoughts. You could be having a great day and suddenly one negative can lead to another and have a snow ball effect on your state of mind. It wont be too long before your mind collapses like a house of cards and you start to feel depressed. Whenever you start to have negative thoughts try to shake them off immediately. Hit the delete button on them! Get rid of the trash right away. A mind that is burdened with worry, anxiety and stress will block you from thinking clearly. It will weigh you down. It is important to find healthy mechanism to cope with negative emotions. Music, walking, exercising, meditation, reading, writing in your journal or maybe talking to a friend or family member are some of the ways that can help. Sometimes just taking deep breaths and letting it go can…

Warm In The Pacific Northwest, Feb 2015


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

GOD has been smiling on us, giving us favor as we took a leap of faith packed our life away, left our large home and moved into our 5th wheel in Sequim, WA 2014. The winter of 2015 has been breaking records for warmth, we are now reaching 60 degrees most days and all of the hay is starting to grow again, soon it will be time to cut hay again. Seems while most of the east coast is suffering from record snow levels and freezing temperatures we are enjoying spring weather. Here are a few of the photos I have taken since moving to Sequim, WA our last stop here on earth.

Marriage is never easy, it takes two people who work hard to help one another achieve their dreams and goals for this I am grateful to GOD and my hubby Scott of twenty-two years. We enjoy our 5th wheel as it is a free life, less time to clean and more time to play. If we did not have a strong marriage and GOD to guide us give us faith this would be a journey that would be most difficult, with GOD in Jesus Christ name nothing is impossible. We have learned that you really do not need much to enjoy life, stuff is just stuff! You need a loved one your health, shelter and time to dance in your mind. I say in your mind as the screws in my pelvis do not authorize me to dance anymore, I am truly screwed down, locked down tight in my pelvis, cant twist, bend and still I suffer from pain and numbness in my feet almost five years later.

Living in the 5th wheel has provided us with freedom. We find more time to enjoy one another, the farm, the Olympic Mountains, ocean, rivers and of course all of our animals. Most importantly the flat land is a rehabilitation spot for me as I walk everywhere on the farm as it is flat. Animals are GOD’s angels sent to heal our souls so never abuse your pet, and always be grateful each and every day. As tomorrow what you had today could be gone forever. Life is fragile and precious, if you have your health you are rich beyond measure. I miss my health each and every day and continue to pray the pain will go away. Five years on April 13, 2015 since the semi-truck accident.

All of our eight equine are so relaxed and happy, this makes me and hubby beyond happy. We have two horses (mares), two standard rescue donkeys no paperwork, one Mammoth donkey Rio Johnson, and three minis.

I am happy to report I can now ride easier, train again and enjoy walking again as our property is mostly flat. Less rain makes it easier for me to move and the more I move the better I feel. If you have recently suffered from trauma I just want to say to you to trust Jesus Christ and never give up. No matter how bad the pain, never give up. My marriage has never been stronger and I am grateful to Jesus Christ for my husband of twenty-two years Scott. Scott is not only my better half he is my best friend. If we can only have one best friend in our entire life this is indeed a blessing but to get to marry our best friend this is a gift from Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for my life and husband. Trying to survive this thing called life without JESUS CHRIST and my husband would be indeed very difficult. Living with a life long disability is not easy and yet here I am working on my second year of running my new business a world-wide educational equine business for all donkey, horse and mule owners. GOD is amazing, never give up!
