    Pearl,
    I understand about negative comments. I have allowed them to upset me also. However, I do realize that not everyone is able to communicate what they really mean, or that in belittling others it makes them feel superior. When this happened to me, after attempting to make it right, (which was definitely my choice) I simply ignored all posts and comments from this individual. Not the most mature thing to do, but it kept me from obsessing without reason.
    I would truly hate to see you leave us. I really enjoy your recipes and creativity. Take a break, and if you choose to leave it is understandable. However, you do help so many, and will be greatly missed.
    Personally, I always look forward to your blogs. If I ever post something hurtful, I would like to know.
    If you have time/and or inclination I would like to have updates on how you are. (Any suggestons welcome) emoticon
    Do what you feel is best for you, my friend. I am sorry you have had this experience. emoticon

    By not blogging because of a negative comment, you are giving the negative comment and the peroson who wrote it power over you. Start blogging again and take your power back. Your power is yours why give it up to someone else? Also, can you delete the negative comments from your blog?
    I know what you mean about negative people and their comments. I choose to ignore them completely. And if there was away to block them completely from commenting I would. If you find out how let me know please.
    You are a good person!! You have the right to blog!!!

    Don't let one comment from someone you don't know affect your life so strongly. I know its hurtful when someone attacks you in that way but it seems to me there are a lot of people who do like your blogs so why let one negative person ruin it for everyone else? If they continue to be annoying, report them to Spark People. I'd rather the negative posters be weeded out anyway!

    I'm sorry to hear that. Try not to let the comment get to you. Keep in mind, its more of a reflection on that person and their insecurites than on you. I know. It's easier said than done, but this is true. Complements or complaints - they all reflect more the person they are coming from, and things they wish they had that they see in you, or things they are jealous of. Just something to try and keep in mind.

    In the meantime

    It sounds like there are many more people who enjoy your blogs! Remember those people and forget the one bad one. (They were probably jealous that you are posting so many good things!)

    Remember your blog is for you as much as for anyone else. Don't sabotage yourself for someone else.

    Don't let some face-less person out there upset you! Your blogs are appreciated by almost everyone :)
    There will always be someones who can't help themselves by being nasty, if only to make themselves feel better - that's THEIR problem - try and ignore it!
    Hope you'll be back soon!

    Come back soon. There are always going to be individuals with negative energy around them. The key is to stay connected to the positive people you meet here. e. Don't let one bad apple spoil the bunch.

Keep focused on your positive journey, and hang in there!
