After receiving well over 700 comments, texts and Facebook messages from everyone helping me get through the lowest point of my life.
I also received a comment that really bothered me. But before I respond to this comment I wanted to ask for your opinion.
Was I wrong to reach out to my subscribers asking for advice/prayers?
Should I just kept it in and not shared my tragedy with anyone?
Does anyone else think that I used my worst tragedy to help my name and business?
Below is the comment that was made:
From Isiah B,
“I’m very sorry for your loss. However, I’m more sorry that you’d blog about tragedy and send mass emails to people you don’t even know like me. Why the hell do you need to let the world know about your unborn son? How the hell are blog posts going to help you deal with something like this? Only family and god can be of use here, isn’t that obvious? I can’t help but feel like by doing this you’re helping your business and your name. Good god some people. Look! Now your making yourself vulnerable to people like me. I’m not heartless I’m just not fucking buying it.”
Please leave me a comment below and let me know if you agree with Isiah. Do you think that I shouldn’t ask for help and prayers in time of need? Do you think I used this tragedy for personal gain?
I would love to know your thoughts and comments below.
