Your Self-Hate Has Nothing to Do with Me, So Shove It!

What is wrong with some people?

I got an email from someone who believes I “use [my] perfect body, [my] perfect relationship, [my] perfect stepdaughter, [my] perfect spiritual identity...” and pretty much my perfect anything you can think of to make other people feel not so perfect about themselves.

My first reaction was to delete the message and move on. Actually, it was more like: get pissed off, tell my Piano Man about it, my amazing lover reminds me of the fact that some people are just insane-self-hating-bastards, and then I considered deleting the email and moving on. But I changed my mind; some issues should be nipped in the butt and smacked on the face. No, it’s not a typo, I meant to write butt.

Talking about butts... the individual who emailed me was annoyed by My Witchy Lady Hump post. In the sad delusion that is this person’s nightmarish existence, I “entered the Get Off Your Broom Fitness Challenge to shove [my] perfect life in other people’s faces, and gloat.” 


Well, my not so dear unfriend, you need to back off. Most people pity your kind, but I despise it. As a Witch, I take responsibility for my actions, and guilt—especially remorse that has nothing to do with me—is a rotted corpse I disposed of eons ago.

So... NO, I feel no guilt for my happiness and I’m not sorry for your unhappiness. Why? Because if you took half the energy you used to write a hateful page-long email, and aimed it towards healing what’s rotten inside your soul, you might find yourself smiling as much as I smile.

I’ll say something that your little brain seems to have missed, but that anyone who reads Pagan Culture already knows: my life is not perfect. No life is. But those of us, who understand that living is about loving and learning, have already figured out that perfection is not the point of life. Take a step back, look at yourself—slap that scowl off your mug before somebody else does—and work on loving what you see, and on showing some respect for the way others choose to live their lives.

I love my witchy self. I love my life. I’m in love with a Piano Man who adores me. I’m the wicked cool stepmom of a loving Little Princess whose bio-mom is not insane (I’ve lived the crazy baby mama drama; it’s not pretty). I have no love for people who want to blame their inadequacies on others. I love mirrors… because when I stand in front of one, I see a hot, intelligent, loving woman who couldn’t be happier or prouder of being exactly who she is.

  5. Wow, someone's ticked off! On one hand I want to suggest that you maybe try to be a little more understanding of some people's cluelessness, but on the other hand I want to say you're awesome for writing this post. :)

    And yeah, anyone who reads your blog knows your life isn't perfect. Even before you got to pointing that little detail out I was wanting to say to this person "Um, she lives with constant pain in her hip and shoulder..."

    What's this about you stealing a piñata from some kids? There's got to be a story behind this one, because I cannot see you randomly walking into a birthday party and stealing the piñata. You're too nice for that.

    I feel for you darling. I don't understand those people either. I mean, really, why is it that when those kinds of people see someone else who loves themselves and their lives (regardless of life's issues), they automatically jump to the "I hate her. She doesn't deserve it. She needs to back off and stop being so happy" kind of crap. Honestly, it makes my day to see someone who loves their life. I've been around too much of that craziness and frankly, it's completely pointless. You are a lovely, gorgeous woman, Magaly. Don't let someone else and their inadequate self-image try to bring you down. You're too good for it. Just keep doing you and maybe that person will get the hint and try to fix their own happiness button instead of hating on someone else.

    To steal a phrase from another belief system "AMEN SISTER!!!" I am so glad for you, that you are beautiful, happy and healthy. I wish the same for everyone else, and that makes me happy. If this poor wretch that sent you such hate could do the same, she would be much happier too! (nice butt by the way...so jealous haha)
    Once upon a time, I let people make me feel guilty about having a healthy, loving husband and healthy happy children. I found myself "making up stuff" about "oh he's not that wonderful..blah blah blah" just to make them feel better about their lives. Then I hated myself for being horrible to hubby behind his back. Then I got angry(not something I do very often) and put things right, and told those people to sort their lives out and stop trying to spoil mine. Best tantrum I ever threw :D XXX

  12. People are weird and they have a way to see just what they want and what fits in the box some call life. And about the piñata, well... I might have been wanting to eat all the caramel. Maybe... Actually, the rope broke, so I jump on a table to hold it so the kids could hit it, but I kept on moving and making them miss. Yep, despicable naughty me ;-D

  16. Well, the green eyed monster raises her ugly head again.  When will women stop being jealous of women?  When will they learn that your happiness doesn't steal her chances of her own ?  The universe is an unlimited source of good stuff and you having some doesn't make less for others.  What does effect the chances is the very thing she is all about - negativity, hate, jealousy and her "victim attitude."  Most happy people don't come by it without at struggle.  Most have to seek it out, make it happen and spend time focusing on the positive and less on the negative.

    So sad.  I loved your blog and I think you have an amazing booty!  When someone is happy and feeling good about themselves, someone inevitably has to come along and poo-poo it.  Like when I told my neighbor that I had lost 52 lbs., she looked at me and said, "Well, you don't look have as obese as you used to."  *insert awkward smile and "um, thank you?" here lol*

    You *are* perfect: to Piano Man, the Princess and all of us who love your beautiful Witchy self :).

    You are a positive, happy, and bright person. It is hard to believe now but I used to be one of those miserable, selfish, hating people. One day I stepped back and saw myself in a few other peoples actions and behaviors and honestly it punched me in the face! I couldn't believe who I was and who I had become. I could NOT let my kids see that in me. So I worked hard at changing. Now I try everyday to be thankful for at least one thing (most of the time it is many) and I try and see the positive side of everything. It is there if we want to see it. This person will be miserable until they decide to change. Hopefully she takes your advice here. It is really good advice! Hugs and Blessings!

     tried leaving a comment on your previous post but it was frozen again, so after two attempts i gave up. I wanted to say, that you look insanely hot(woohoo came to mind) and i love the plan you laid.  That being said, i can not understand the need of some people putting others and themselves down. You are a presence of light in our lives and i am glad you are my blogfriends and i really hope your life gets even more perfect and your wishes fulfilled. But that email you got reminded me something i found in my spam folder.
    Some anonymous of course person told me, that he-she did not want to be mean(lol) but she could not understand how someone who says nothing at all about a subject that knows nothing at all( i think he-she was refering to paganism lol) can get as popular as i am. After i read it i was smiling like crazy and thinking i am popular! Yeih! Mine is a popular blog? If that petty person says so, it must be so! And it really made my day, although i do not think that was the intention.
    So, you have a perfect body, life, piano man, little princess, and blogfriends(lol) and she-he can shove it!hehe
    I am sorry your week started with that negativity, so here is lots of love from a greekwitch really late for class. Be blessed and insanely happy.

    unfortunately, some people can only feel good about themselves when they tear other people down.  this person has no love in their life and wants to spread the misery.  and the thing is, that's a choice they make.  they could just as easily choose to find love and light and happiness in life.  it's all in your perception.

  26. Hey you!! Huge kudos for standing up and flipping her off. :) I just can't get over the fact that people email you like that do and say hateful things. You are such an intelligent, sweet, insightful and beautiful young woman and for her to send such hateful email, says to me JEALOUSY. Jealous that you are happy and love life, jealous you are in love, jealous of your little princess, jealous of your existance. You did the right thing and I seriously hope she sees your post and all the wonderful comments from your friends. :) You go girl!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I honestly thought you were a bit modest in your Witchy Lady Hump post.  So it was odd for me to hear someone is claiming you are showing off your "perfect" body.  Now I think your body is fabulous, and I thought you had quite a cute spin on why you choose to wear shorts.  I don't think you are showing off your perfect life, I think you are talking about the good things you have going on and sometimes the not so good.  You just try to put out more positive than negative and just be happy about what you have, there is nothing wrong with that.

    Also I must have missed the Get off your broom challenge post.  I've taken a break from personal blogging but it almost makes me want to start up again just to take part in the challenge via blog.  Of course, I will be attempting to exercise more and eat better whether I blog about it or not.

  29. Magaly, jealousy is an ugly thing! I have a very close friend (we've been friends for many years).  When she's upset at home she usually likes to pick at all the things that make me happy. 
    I know its because her life isn't the way she wants it to be. I'm upset for a little while then I  let it go.
     I can't hold on to someone elses negativity!
    Stay happy!

  30. You go, girl!  You are a sexy, intelligent, sweet, and sassy woman...and that is definitely cause for celebration.

    I think far too many people don't realize that like attracts like.  If all one is doing is putting out massive negativity, that's all they will reap.  It's self-sabotage, but no one wants to admit it.  Far easier to blame others for their unhappiness.

    Feh!  Tough tookies for them! We all have our problems, but we deal with it.  Life is about living, not brooding.

    Having said that, I'm living vicariously through your "Get off your broom" posts.  My knees may not let me do all I wish, but my spirit certainly soars!  Keep up the awesome work!

    Aaaannd that was your Carrie moment for the day.
    That's what this post made me think of because it made me think the person writing it was kind of like Carrie's mom.
    Jealous of her daughters power and beauty and desperate to destroy it if it couldn't be controlled.
    I applaud your public display of anger.
    May the writer of that email continue emotionally eating and self hating until their kitchen resembles that scene from Seven where Kevin Spacey kills the fat one with Gluttony.

  36. For some reason there are lots of people in this world that think that their jealousy justifies their being rotten. That sucks - especially since they're trying to hold YOU accountable for their insecurities. It's on that twit, not on you. Either that person has a genuine and treatable disorder where s/he thinks everything is in reference to him/herself, or that person is just looking to blame anyone and anything else for their own problems. There are people in the world who think they're being clever and insightful when they crap all over choosing positivity - notably, they're never THAT insightful (though convinced they are) and they don't know how much work being positive actually takes!

    And those people who are running their traps about your spirituality obviously don't know you or what you do, and have no clue about what personal spirituality is. They need to calm down and embrace the eclecticism or leave it alone.

    There are always going to be those "special few"  who look through the world  with blinders on.  I remember when I was lighter and this heavy young woman came up to me and she spat out her venom stating that there is no way I could ever understand what it is like to be fat, she was almost in tears.... I turned to her and asked her to look at a picture.  It was me two years earlier weighing just under 200 pounds.  I told her I had worked hard to get this lean, and that she could too.  She did not believe that the woman in the picture was me and continued to harass me every time she saw me.  There are just some people who are too special for words... so now I leave them wordless and ignore them.  I'm glad you posted this.

  50. My point exactly, just because I choose to look at the beautiful doesn't mean that I don't get my share of ugly. I try forget ugly as soon as it happens.

    Hm, for me personal blogging is therapy lol

    I should stop by and see what your artistic soul has been doing lately.

  51. There was a time when I used to burst as soon as I got angry. It wasn't pretty. Then I would spend days, weeks... trying to take back something that couldn't be unsaid; worse, something that I didn't mean. I've grown passed that and I've learned to count to  and wait. Then I forget ugly and thank the gods for my ability to not be an ass.

  52. I was a bit nervous about the Get Off Your Broom challenge. My hip and shoulder are worthless. I know it might sound silly, but when you have spent a decade running at least 18 miles per week and then you go to less than 6 per week, it feels like you've lost something. It was difficult to be okay with the fact that my body can't do what it was able to, but you know what? I'll embrace my ability to do what I can.

    So be good to your knees my dear, and do what your body is willing to do with you. We'll cheer each other up!

  53. Dear Emailing Self Hater,

    Why don't you take a flying leap off the tallest building and take your self pity elsewhere? No one should feel guilty for being happy with where they are and who they are in life. If you feel bad about yourself, that's YOUR EFFING PROBLEM. Go get therapy and STFU! If you don't like what's written on other people's blogs, then either gouge your own eyes out with a stick, or take them somewhere where other people are also wallowing in their own self muck. 

    Sincerely,
    Someone who's glad they don't know you.

    Now that that's over, love you, Mags!<3

  57. You know, Diana, you are absolutely right. Last night, after I had scheduled this post, I go an email saying that I was not getting this job I had been waiting to hear from. I was down beyond belief and then I sat in front of the window and thought at all the other good things I have going, and my Piano Man hugged me and told me how happy he was. The lost of one freelance job meant nothing at that moment, I have so much more to be thankful for.

  59. Some people are just jealous of the happiness others have, and - instead of looking for the happy things in their own lives - feel they need to place the blame on others for their misery.  Basically, they think that because they aren't happy and you are, it's your fault.  Except it isn't.  The key to being as happy as you are is to look at the good and happy things in your (meaning the person seeking happiness') life, and... Well, basically, be happy about it.  Nobody is perfect, and nobody has a perfect life.  But you can have a happy life if you let happiness in.

I have my own man whom I adore and adores me back and I know I'm intelligent enough LOL I also know that while life is a big stress ball right now, I love nearly everything in it besides that point. 

    Some people just need to take a breather and re-evaluate their lives before hating on other people's happiness.
    Oh, and I damn near died laughing at your comment heehee Love ya!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Part of me feels sorry for the person who took so much time bashing you to try and feel better about him or herself.  EVERYONE has "stuff" that isn't so pleasant (or downright devastating) to deal with. Dwelling on the negative breeds negativity and no progress. One thing I have always said to my kids (and to myself at times) is, "No one can do it FOR you. If you want an enjoyable life then make up your mind to achieve it and be your own best friend, because, when push comes to shove, the only person you can really "count on" is YOU."

    You're awesome Magaly and there are times when I feel a bit down that I will come visit your smiling face and inspiring posts! Don't change a thing.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I guess I should feel sorry for people like that, but I have a really hard time doing that. I suspect someone once taught them how to behave, but they ignore that wisdom to say stuff like this. When I come across such people, I do my best to ignore them, but it isn't easy. Sometimes I answer back, because I can't help myself, but that seems to make it all worse.

    They need to get off their high horse and behave!

    There's enough negative people in the world, so I'm happy every time I come across someone as positive as you Magaly.

  72. You just made me think about one of the persons admire most. She said, "No one learns with someone else's head." And "You can't love someone else if you don't learn to love you first." It took me a while to see the wisdom of those words, but once I did, my life turned into that thing I had always wanted. And friends like you remind me why I'll always keep it that way ;-)

  73. My dear friend, you are very right... There were times in my life (a long time ago than gods) that I looked at myself in the mirror and said to the reflection, "What are you smiling about? Your life is a mess girl!" Then I would laugh at my own silliness and think of ways to make things better.

  74. If someone's "perfect" life makes you feel bad, then you need to look at your own life and figure out what's wrong.

    I cannot believe someone would say such things to you simply because you have a good life! I have found you to be an inspiration, you have taught me that it is not necessary to dislike myself. With so many people out there dedicated towards changing what is already good, how could I not grow up hating myself? I had years of re-wiring of my brain to do, and I feel like you are a part of what helped me find love for myself again.
    Thank you!

  82. I LOVED this post!  Girl you Rock!  You are vibrant, full of life and energy.  I subscribe via e-mail and your posts are always honest and full of LIVING!  Most people sleep walk through their lives, surviving one thing after another and THAT is NOT living.  Who cares about perfect?  No one is, but a life well lived?  Now that is something. 

    This person wasted energy sending hate mail instead of jumping off her broom and exercising to tone her own butt.  Magick requires action not just hot air, and I think it's awesome how you deflected AND banished her hateful energy.

    Blessed Be!

  83. "Love is the Law" and "Love under Will" Hm, I might have to steal those ;-)

  84. Lol!  I'm ecclectic.  The Laws come from Thelema.  If you want to research more on it check out the Ordo Templi Orientis [www.oto.org], which is a Thelemic Order.

  85. GO YOU! YES! I got very tired of pitying people. That actually takes
    energy. It's more of "that's sad for them" and move on to something much more fun. I admire you.

    You all are adorable.
