Disclaimer: This is a negative post. No feel good story, no happy ending. So feel free to skip this post if you are not in the mood for more toxicity and negativity in your life. I will understand. I just HAD to vent. You do not have to read.
Normally, when I read posts complaining about other bloggers, I scratch my head a little. The person that is complaining includes a link to the blog they are complaining about, potentially increasing their enemy’s traffic and spreading their web (the more websites have your address on them, the better for you [SEO, etc.]). Because of that I will NOT include a link. After all, this post is to warn you, not make you go exploring.

I have had some disagreements in the past. Sometimes we realized we wanted the same thing in the end, sometimes we agreed to disagree, and sometimes we realized that we both knew better and there was no convincing one another.

I will not try and defend myself by explaining to you my arts background. All I will say is that art is subjective. Everyone is allowed to like or not like a piece of art. No matter how much they studied it.
Am I missing something? What did I say that warranted such a reply? Insanely ridiculous on so many levels. I will leave it for you to judge. I will not pick it apart.
I just wanted to warn you that there ARE crazy people out there.
(This makes me appreciate the positive people in my blogging experience even more. It is a good reminder to not take good people for granted.)
Please accept my apology for posting something like this. I could not help myself. I had to keep it real. I HAD to share this with you.
