  1. I have to be honest, I don’t even know what cyber bullying would look like…but even so, if someone has done that to you, why on earth would you still want to be friends with them????
    I hope you’re okay x

    Ignoring works…well hopefully! It’s worth a try at least.

    • Angie says:

      Lol, Colleen! I’m taking a sick day! Didn’t plan to but we’re going out of town later and I haven’t given Skye her bath. The cat’s out of the bag ?

  3. Hi Angie!
    Sorry you had to experience that… I’ve never experienced cyber bullying myself, but I have regular old school bullying. I’m constantly cutting negative people out of my life. Bullies don’t deserve your time/energy/tears, so I say cut them out and focus on the people or things that care about you, value your friendship, and therefore, deserve your attention. Hope you feel better πŸ™‚
    Happy Fiesta Friday!

      That’s what my husband said, too. And my daughter! She’s so wise, my baby girl. I don’t know why some people think it’s ok to make others feel terrible. If I knew I did something wrong, the first thing I do is apologize. But some people apparently feel they’re never wrong. I actually feel sad for them.

  4. Anyone that is a bully is not a friend and not worth the time of day! Have a good week Angie πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      Well said, Judi! I’m trying to stay away and not respond. I can probably just leave the group, however some of them are truly lovely people so I’m torn.

  5. Antonia says:

    Oh no, that sounds terrible! I’m sorry you experienced that Angie. I hope it’s over. The features are wonderful this week and I am so intrigued by that beautiful cake made with buckwheat flour.

  6. Cyber bullying!?!? What on EARTH. I’m so sorry to hear that. πŸ™ I agree with Judi- anyone who is doing that is not worth your time- now OR in the future.
    On another note- Thank you for featuring my arugula salad! You made my day. πŸ™‚ Happy FF & Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  7. So sorry Angie. Give that bully the boot. LIfe it too short!

  8. Margherita says:

    Being cyberbulled by some of your friends must be hard, for me it would be harder that receiving this by someone anonymous. As mostly of the girls before me said, people like that is not worth neither your friendship, nor your time. I really hope you are ok.

    • Angie says:

      I guess maybe they weren’t friends to begin with, whatever… I think maybe they thought they were joking, but I didn’t find it funny. I do feel better now after venting. Thanks, Margy! ??

  9. Goodness Gracious!! That’s what it is called nowadays? Cyberbullying. I am a true Scorpio – anybody who wants to be mean etc. to me I just simply dont know anymore – completely ignore. And believe me, that enoys them even more than a possible heated word exchange. Luckily it has not happened to me (yet?) but another thing which drives me really mad are people who use their blog in trying to “educate” their readers/followers in Blog etiquette etc. etc. and send this nonsens out twice a month.!!!

    • Angie says:

      That’s exactly what my husband said!! He said my silence would speak volumes, much more than retaliation or exchange of words. And I think he and you are right. Blog etiquette?! You mean there’s such a thing, lol. Oh please…people just need to calm down; surely there are more important things to worry about. Thanks, Carina! ?

    Hi Angie! I am sorry to hear this! Some people! I can’t imagine anyone would want to cyberbully you. If it happens repeatedly and you can unfriend them …then I probably would. Life is just too short to deal with people who are less than kind. My two cents πŸ˜‰ Wishing you a wonderful FF and weekend!!

    • Angie says:

      I’m this close to unfriending, Arlene! I’ll give it some time and then when they least expect it, I’ll do it ? You’re absolutely right, life’s too short! Thanks, GF, have a great weekend! ??

  11. Nadia says:

    Cut all toxic life out of your life immediately. Life is too precious and too short to put up with people like that for even a second.

    hi Angie
    It sounds like you have encountered a bad person. It is too easy to be someone you are not online but no matter where you encounter these people, online or in real life, they are best avoided and cut out of your life! You are such a lovely person so head high and leave people like that behind! πŸ™‚ x

    • Angie says:

      Well, they’re certainly insensitive, inconsiderate, rude and obnoxious…I guess yes, they’re bad…I was avoiding saying the b word there, but hey if the shoe fits… Yes, you’re right, best to avoid them! Thanks, Petra! Going out of town later so hopefully the weekend will start on a good note ??

  13. hey there, cyberbullying or bullying in any form isn’t acceptable. Get rid of them. Block them. Is it on wordpress? If you need help I am sure there is plenty out there and you have plenty of listening ears here too <3

  14. You don’t need the negativity, hold your head high and stay above it all πŸ˜‰ Happy FF and Have a Great Weekend!

  15. I’m so sorry you’ve been a victim of cyberbullying. I know what it’s like to be bullied, and I can see from the comments above you’re making the right choices. You are your own person, and you are wonderful the way you are. People who have to cut others down to make themselves feel good aren’t true friends. You deserve true friends! Thank you for all your hard work, and thank you for always providing us such a beautiful space to enjoy Fiesta Fridays.

    xoxoxo

    • Angie says:

      Thanks so much, Nell! You have a way of putting things in perspective. Your kind words are so comforting to hear. I’m so glad I have my Fiesta Friday friends as my sounding board and grateful to receive their support. Hugs! ??

  16. Angie that sounds horrible, definitely not something you should have to take. Cut them loose!

  17. You are far too fabulous to have to be worrying about pettiness! That’s no friend of yours! Luckily you have all of us fabulous peeps to remind you. Just sayin’!! πŸ™‚

    • And it all probably stems from insecurity and envy on their part!! You go girl!

      • Angie says:

        They have way too much time on their hands! If they weren’t so idle, they wouldn’t be spending precious time criticizing other people. Maybe they should take up blogging ? ? Thanks, girlfriend! I’m lucky to have you all as my sounding board ??

        • WHAT?? NO BLOG?? I don’t know how you can associate with people like that, lol!! Seriously, have they seen how gorgeous yours is??!!!

        • Angie says:

          You know it’s funny I’ve never even told them I have a blog! It’s weird I know. I only told close family members, a few select friends, and even fewer coworkers. This group of “friends” on the other hand, I’ve always felt wouldn’t appreciate my blog. It’s not their cup of tea, so to speak. In hindsight, that should have been a warning sign, lol.

        • Lol! Well, friendship needs to be a two way street, although everyone goes through periods when there’s an imbalance, tough times, but only you can be the judge if the good outweighs the bad…

  18. So sorry to hear that, Angie! How did that happen? I always wonder what trigger people, worse “friends” to do such a thing. I reckon it’s always good for the soul to cut out all the toxic people in your life.
    Thank yuo for hosting #FiestaFriday and don’t you worry about the bullying!

    Hello Angie, better late than never…..I’m sorry I haven’t responded earlier to my favorite person on Fiesta Friday πŸ™‚ It’s too bad you’ve experienced what you did. Cyber-bullying is becoming pretty rampant across the globe. Is that because social media has taken on so much of our lives? I mean we eat, breathe and sleep social media. I too have a tendency like all the others to press “delete” and be done with it. But like you, I have an emotional side too and it would really bother me for a while. I hope things sort themselves out and that you can turn a blind eye to it (easier said than done I know). I hope you’re enjoying your weekend away, wishing you love and peace.

    • Angie says:

      It doesn’t bother me as much now after getting such supportive feedback from all of you. That’s why I LOVE you ALL and Fiesta Friday! I think it’s even better that we know one another semi anonymously; less pressure. With “real” friends, presurre to conform is too demanding. I know I’ve been “blacklisted” from parties just because I didn’t attend previous ones. Some people just don’t understand prior commitments. They want you to drop everything! If they’re truly real friends, they’d understand, right? Anyway, thanks for the lovely words, Loretta…I’m so grateful I have virtual friends like you; sometimes it feels you’re more real! ??

  21. sorry to hear that you’ve been cyberbullied – that;s awful πŸ™ The opposite of awful is that salad with creamy cheese and corn – it looks amazing.

Talk to me, people!
