Damn man, that's a raw deal. Sorry that you don't have family to turn to, but we're always here if you need someone to talk to. My issues are nothing compared to yours, no need to be sorry. But yeah still, stay safe. If you feel in danger, just do what's best. Don't try to stick it out if you think your accusations can get you into some real trouble with people who oppose what you stand for.
Thanks man, I really appreciate it. You shouldn't compare your problems with others, if you got issues you need to talk about, I am more than willing to listen too.
We reap what we sow! You should see if there is any bridge not burned too much with your friends though, I always keep some close friends who know probably too much about me, it's good to have people to bounce things (like this) off and see what they think you should do. Many on here just know you as a username and avatar... perhaps you could ask your master for assistance.... lord vader?
I know fully well, that me having no friends at the moment is my own fault. Could I go back I would have done a lot of things differently. There is actually a story behind my username, my ex-girlfriend's last name was Lord and my middle name is Lichtenstein.
What are you famous for that encourages some people to go after you? I'm assuming you're famous in Britian or something because of your podcast on the BBC you mentioned, which is why I have no idea whats going on.
Instead of me avoiding the reason, I will make a post about what I did/do. No, I'm actually from Denmark.
Are you able to convey this to people in your community?
That may prompt more people to be more considerate of your situation and not put as much pressure on you or ease up on the hate mail. You may also get support from your community.
I have made multiple posts on my SoMe accounts, telling people to stop threatening and harassing me. But it seems it just encourages people even more. It's fucking weird..
Don't remember the specifics but I think he made a social media post or something that blew up in his country and meet lots of kind people.
Exactly Jason. I will make a post about it in a sec.
Maybe Twitter can help. Lots of supportive people there.
Everything will be alright, Patrick.
I never got into Twitter. I only use Facebook and Instagram.
Thanks Vivster. :)
Ignoring the hate comments may be hard, but it's the only thing you can do. Whenever you get upset about such a comment, try to remember this: the good outweighs the bad, there are way more people who admire you than people who hate you. Also, these hate comments tell more about the person who writes them than about you. Some people don't realise the consequences their words can have. They feel protected by the anonimity that they have on the internet. They are always trying to hurt others. Their hate is usually a lot less genuine than all the positive stuff that other people say about you. You're putting a lot of effort into helping others, and you can only be proud of that.
I totally get everything you are saying, it's just, sometimes it gets to me. Last night I was in a vulnerable spot..
I'm sorry to hear that. I'm no profissional in any way but I've read about how exercises and meditation could help. The anxiety is, in some sort, a lack of confidence.
You might try to start running in your neighbour twice a week to get more confidence; say 'hello' to some strangers while at it. I think it you will grow your confidence day by day, little by little and, in the end, you'll regain it.
Meditation could help too. It seems there are some researchs that corroborate that meditation is beneficial. I started reading this book: The confidence gap. Taking a class would be nice because of the new people you would meet.
In the end, what I really thing is that we overestimate the negative things people think of us. Most of the time they, in fact, don't care who you are or what you did. They can say something at the moment but if you don't have an agressive response, they just let it go.
I wish you the best.
It is funny you should mention it, because of my ADD I recently started meditating and doing yoga. As of right now it hasn't had an effect, but hopefully it will in a month or two. Thanks man.
I know the reason you got famous goes in the opposite direction of having many people around you, so it's a hard situation, but if you really don't want it anymore just tell the media you also want to have a normal life, you are not well suited for being a star, that's why you even got famous in the first place.
Not a day goes by when I don't think about quitting, but I also feel a certain kind of responsibility, if that makes sense? I have a platform right now and I have shown that I can make a difference. I is hard to let that go, knowing you could have helped someone, but you didn't.
