a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

Morning Peeps . . . Feast your eyes on this lovely comment I received yesterday.


"Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Am I a Grown-Up? Part 1": I have commented here before and it was deleted just like I'm sure this will be. It's easy to dismiss someone as a bitch instead of actually hearing what they have to say.

Selling a condo and having children does not make you an adult. This should be obvious to you, but being a grown up is about your actions not your age. To me it's sad that you actually think of yourself that way. I don't know why it struck a chord but I think it iss because you seem so lost. All of your quotes about how to live and be kind are so clearly you trying to convince yourself of something that is difficult for you. This is the least genuine blog I follow and I don't know why I keep reading it. It's a guilty pleasure I guess. You seem like an ok person who would like her kids to be happy. But I also get the feeling you're the kind of person wo couldn't be real enough with herself to even benefit from therapy. It's not your fault. So many GIRLS your age are the same way. But you are not a grown up and are in no position to dispense advice. Get your ego in check and learn how to be real. You had one great post about your failings that brought me hhere but everything else has been straight out of the world of goop. THAT IS NOT A COMPLIMENT."


Dear Anonymous,

I want to start by saying how fitting it is that this is a comment left on a post I wrote about people being nasty, being bullies and spreading negativity . . . you helped me demonstrate my point exactly, so for that I Thank You.

It has allowed me to see that there are truly beautiful people out there. Ones that would recognize, what you consider to be, a "lost" person and instead of reaching out to them or sending thoughts of support and love, you tear them down, demean them and try to hurt them.  

You clearly are an exemplary human being!  I commend you for being so honest and true to yourself, although you continue to write these uplifting comments as "anonymous"; very brave of you.  And your enjoyment of peoples "failures" is quite a nice characteristic; you must be a delightful person to be around. 

On another note I have been to therapy many times throughout my life; I enjoy it, I believe in the power of it and I recommend everyone try it.  If you are in therapy, however, my advice to you (and I know how much you appreciate my advice) would be to fire your therapist and find a new one, because it is clearly not working for you.

Your favorite blogger,
Glitter & Gold 

P.S. - Please do keep following my blog because I will surely be posting more "quotes about how to live and be kind" and who knows one day they may just sink in . . . 

I leave my final words to a legend . . . hope you enjoy

  1. Like I said it's easy to call someone mean or a bitch. There was actually nothing mean about my comment. If you would actually listen and absorb it then you would maybe benefit. But your response is what I would have expected. Defensive and missing the point entirely. I will leave your blog now and wish you all the best in your life. I mean that sincerely.

  2. Holy heck!!! I love coming to your blog - it's always so pretty and honest and I love how you're a working Mum, fashionista, daughter, friend and you try so hard at all those things. As my neighbour says: "We're all just trying the best we can!" While having a few cocktails. And buying some nice shoes. And trying to find the meaning of life....

  4. Its your blog. You put your thought, opinions, feelings etc into it and those who connect with it should read and enjoy it for what it is and if they don't then they should spend more positive energy on something they enjoy. Seems to me like that would be the more "adult" approach to it, in my opinion.
