I wrote this some months ago and thought it was too banal and obvious to put up. But well, here it is anyway.
I experienced a moment of personal growth a few days ago. I saw a comment on one of my marketing posts that had been picked up on a site other than the one it had been originally posted on, a comment that lamented how useless my post was.
Funnily enough, it's the first time that's happened to me (for a business post).
In itself, this isn't a big deal. Lots of derogatory comments on the Internet, right?
What was different
to me was my reaction. I was able to shrug it off with a mild feeling of amusement.
For someone who used to lie awake at night with a weight in my stomach over disagreements with other bloggers or commenters, this feels like a big deal.
