In the recent past a fellow Twitter, @$%#&, intentionally and aggressively attacked me on my blog and Twitter. Her extremely rude behavior upset me greatly. I realize the adult thing to do here is to “ just get over it.” This is where the dilemma occurs. I cannot continue blogging and using Twitter without coming across a reference to her since she is so intimately intertwined with my previous friends list. I had hoped I could get over it, but I’ve made minimal progress. every time I see her reference I feel extremely unwelcome. So the alternatives are (1) completely remove myself from this environment along with all contacts associated it, or (2) reentering the world of Twitter and letting @$%#& and others know exactly the kind of rude person she is. Neither of these are particularly palatable.
In the direct messages prior to my departing Twitter, she apologized for her tone but not her content. My request for a public apology and itemized explanation of her comments, which he could easily do on her blog, have fallen on deaf ears. Part of that was my fault since I was angry when I contacted her, which was reflected in my tone. Obviously I believe I need a real apology and contrition from her for me to move forward. It is interesting how a person who presents herself as being all hugs and kisses is so easily able to make such a cruel attack, yet has such a great deal of difficulty saying she’s sorry for anything but for her tone in private.
Have a great deal more to say on this type of behavior, but I will save that for later.
