What I Learnt From Getting Hate Mail
What I Learnt From Getting Hate Mail
This week I got my first 'hate mail'. Not sure you can really call it hate but it certainly wasn’t a love letter! After emailing my list I got a response from one person that was nothing but rude.
The thing is, I was really surprised how it affected me. There was a time when something like that would have really upset me. I would have taken it personally, it probably would have reduced me to tears and could have had a real impact on me. This, however, didn’t, not one bit.
In fact, I am so proud of myself and how my self-esteem has grown, I really don’t care what anyone thinks of me.
This is something that has been a long time coming. Self-confidence and self- esteem are linked. I have always been fairly confident, but I looked for approval in others. I am now glad to say I no longer feel I need approval from anyone. If you like me, great, if you don’t that is OK and your choice.
I am passionate about my work; I share openly my story of my journey. I am totally transparent and if you have worked with me in any shape or form you will know I am congruent in all I do. I have high ethics and pride myself on honesty. I never claim to be perfect and I am certainly a work in progress. Yes, I have manifested lots of things, I have healed lots of issues but I have more to do, we all do.
Getting an email telling me I should be ashamed of myself, accusing me of being a fraud, I know is far from the truth. The second part of it is true; “lose some weight you fat ducking bitch”.
Yes, I am fat but what does that have to do with anyone else? You see, that comment would have crushed me some time back. I have had eating disorders since I was 8 years old, as I am 50 next year, that is a long time. I have done a lot of silly things with my eating and caused myself some real problems.
Thankfully 5 months ago I took on a Health Coach, as I knew I needed support in that area. I found a lovely one who really understands. 5 months in and I would have loved to say I have dropped a lot of weight, but that is just not true. What I have done is healed my relationship with food massively and that has been not an easy journey.
Now I am slowly starting to see the weight disappear. I don’t know what the outcome will be, I hope for my health I will shift a few stone. However, by acting, getting support and using Law of Attraction to work through my stuff I stand a better chance now than ever.
So, getting that email last week was a blessing as it showed me how far I have come. I am so proud of myself for doing this work. I knew what my weakness was and I sought help with it. I am just sending love to this person and I hope that they too can heal their wounds.
Did you know self-esteem and self-confidence are both linked to self-worth? Your self-worth is equal to your net worth. So, if you have low self-worth you are likely to struggle financially. If you have high self-worth you have a higher ability to attract more financial flow.
If you would like help with your self-worth or manifesting, I am offering a free session to anyone who wishes to consider working 1:1 with me on my Happiness Generator.

Lots of women are blocked from receiving what they want to manifest due to not being able to receive. Even things as simple as a compliment, can’t just be received without justifying “What, this old dress?”. Women are so often used to giving to everyone else. Their...
What does that even mean? Flow. For me it is everything. It means I am fully supported, guided and taken care of. It means everything is unfolding as it should. It feels like my Angel is one step ahead of me clearing the way and everything works out just as I want it...
