“You, with your switching sides, and your walk by lies and your humiliation. You, have pointed out my flaws again, as if I don’t already see them. I walk with my head down, trying to block you out cause I’ll never impress you. I just wanna feel okay again.”
Just a little excerpt from one of my favorite songs, by one of my favorite singers of all time.. Taylor Swift. For some reason she tends to know exactly what I’m thinking in different stages and point in my life, but that’s not why I’m here. Yesterday, June 1 was pretty good day for me. I finally got to design a whole lot of approved designs at work that day and I was finally
going to get to buy these markers I’ve been eye-ing for over a year now.. Things were great till I got home to KarmaFashPolice
tweeting to me, telling me about a certain something. I already heard about parts of this prior to going home. the thing was I needed to see/read it for myself before making any judgement cause I vaguely knew what it was about. Right after work, I rushed home to a series of Tumblr posts and Tweets with regards to this certain issue between Lexi and a few of her friends with regards to me and other fashion bloggers. I was gobsmacked, with me in denial, I did try to joke about it at first — but not until I saw everything, and I mean everything. If you ask me, what was said about me (as well as Tricia, Laureen and Camille) weren’t as bad as what was stated about my good friends, JL and Lissa, they were just flat out WRONG
. Oh yeah, I was a part of that Woo Girl album so, maybe that was for me too? I don’t know.. You tell me..
Well, this was where it all began.. Cause, apparently I look like Justin Bieber as a girl. (see photo above). As funny as it may seem, it still hurt. I’ve know Lexi and some of these girls since I was in high school and never did I ever think it would come to this. Oh, and to create a thread just for the plain reason of what? Talking smack about people? Why? Just cause you felt like it? Cause you wanted to make a joke out of people? I don’t get it. I’ve gotten hate mail, comments, tweets and more from haters but this was something different. Because I knew Lexi and those friends of hers personally, and I still don’t know what to think.. It just proves that people can be such fakes and be really good at it. I won’t lie, I do gossip as well, I’d be lying if I say that I never gossiped in my life.. I mean who doesn’t? It’s just unfortunate that this was brought into the public eye.. BUT
never will I ever say such cruel things about others, and that I can vouch for without a doubt.
So, after reading both Lissa and JL’s posts here are somethings I agree with and I’d like to share them with you.. This one is from Lissa
, “It’s natural to talk about other people, I’m not going to pretend by saying I don’t gossip about others because I DO. It’s a natural thing to do and let’s admit it, it can be kind of fun right?… Especially when we do it with our friends. The thing is, while you are entitled to your own opinion and entitled to pick your own side, it doesn’t mean that you have to be mean about it and go on a hating spree. It doesn’t mean that you endlessly curse, make fun and call other people names. Also, before doing anything, ALWAYS be prepared for the consequences of your actions.
” and an excerpt from JL
, “I didn’t quite know how to take it— how can people just bash at random? Is bashing supposed to be a hobby now? I feel the apology, if you could call it that, was for the fact that things were released to the public. The reason behind the hatred & bashing,were never accounted for. I deserved a better “apology” and an explanation… than this.
If you’re all wondering.. NO
, I do not hate Lexi or those people involved, more of disappointed and I feel betrayed. NO
, I will not talk smack about her or her friends just as they did. NO
, I will not gang up on her of her friends. NO. NEVER
. I’ll be the bigger person and try my VERY
best to keep mum about this. I will rise above this, trust me. This is one of the many times the people who care for me give me the best advice. Knowing that, I’d like to thank my family
who have showed their love, it means the most to me. To you all, my dearest readers
, thank you for reading my blog and giving me the inspiration to keep doing what I do, to keep moving forward, thank you. With that, I end this. But, I’d like to leave you with a few lines and the video of Taylor Swift’s song Mean. Let’s all learn from this, I know I have.. To all haters.. “Someday, I’ll be, living in a big old city, and all you’re ever gonna be is mean. Someday, I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me, and all you’re ever gonna be is mean. Why you gotta be so mean?”
