    Aw Itsy, we all do it. The effects of negativity linger much longer than the boost from a positive comment.

    but if you ask yourself why the person wasted time to try and tear you down, you will come the conclusion that this guy has an issue. you don’t need to feel bad, unless it’s for the hapless poster.

    Trolls – damaging the world five seconds at a time.

    No, their opinion doesn’t matter, but why is it so hard to move past their toxic comments?

    Yes, you are! Please, Itsy, and all of you: never sweat the netiots. I wish I knew why so many people feel compelled to share their meanest side to the whole world, but do they really think anyone is impressed or drawn to their sheer nastiness? What a sad, pitiful life if they think that is the point of being in the world. It just loads up my block list…

    I think Theodore Roosevelt had some relevant words, of which these are maybe the best ones: ""It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. "

    Best to go by the old adage ~ ‘If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all’.

    Matt, I was catching up on several months of comics this afternoon and I am so sorry to learn what a rough time you have been having. I just wanted to let you know how wonderful I find “Cat’s Cafe”. I’ve been reading it for around 2 years now. I began working as a high school teacher this year and I start each day by sharing a page from your book on the overhead projector for all to see. It is such a positive message for students struggling to find their place in life!

    “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me” is the lyingest lie that parents ever tell their children.

    Honestly, this comic relates to me. (and I have self esteem of -500,000/100)
