I’m shutting this down. Over the next few days or weeks, or let’s face it, whenever I have the energy to lift my head – and that’s hard enough right now as it is.. I’ve finally given up. It does no good to put my thoughts and ideas out there when somebody comes along and essentially steals them so they can get attention and recognition for it.
I don’t have a fantasy job, or supportive spouse/partner, no trendy “colorful” background full of interesting events. I’m not quirky, outgoing or even much to look at. But my mind is important to me, and so are the ideas that spring from it. I do not deserve to have that mind exploited by people who only want a larger following on social media, or have my hard work used by someone else to make themselves “internet famous” over a stupid hashtag.
It isn’t worth the feeling of doubt in my self worth, which is already low enough lately.
