Advice so sage I can’t ignore…

May 9, 2012

Dear Max

There is assvice (the bad advice) and sassvice (the good advice) and fortunately I got the latter yesterday when I was feeling a little hit at again.

I’m lucky to have a good support crew, on hand via Whatsapp 24 hours (because they busy themselves with late-night and early-morning baby feeds).

And this is the wisdom I got from Melinda. I’ve included some of the profanity, because it just wouldn’t sound like her without it. I know you’ll be mature about this, Max.

“If I were you I actually wouldn’t give a fuck!… If people have enough time on their hands to write shit about what you say or do it’s their problem! People who do that are threatened and have major insecurity issues… Don’t let anyone piss on your parade… People are mean but it’s your choice to let it affect you…You can let it stunt you or you can let it be the motivator to make you more fabulous”.

That’s sassvice for you. Use it.

    LOVE IT! So flipping true. My mum always used to tell me – when I was feeling rancid because of so much stuff – that one must ignore everything one does not feel in their heart to be true. And that if anyone says anything ridiculous or hurtful, it’s because they’re jealous/stupid/clamouring for attention.

    I had the same issue a week or so ago where someone had to give their opinion and criticism about the way we had our kids! If you feel in your heart you made the right choice then to heck with them all! They either don’t know your situation, or they are just as Cath says Jealous, stupid and clamoring for attention, trying to show how awesome they think they are!

    She’s one clever chick that Melinda friend of yours. You’re so much in the forefront of social media it must be hard to have a thick skin cos ppl think it’s ok to attack on that forum.

    Glad you took her assvice to heart.
