We received a lot of feedback from our last post. Most of it was well intentioned and appreciated, but some was blatantly insulting, profane, superior, and judgmental. Apparently our decisions, way of life, and story are quite an affront!
We have decided not to print those comments because they are far from respectful and considerate. It’s not that we wouldn’t post a negative comment, but we will not post comments that attack, insult, and slander us. Our blog is our story as we see fit to write it and not a public forum.
These people espouse the point of view that unless we have careers or doctorates we are not “grown up,” and that we do not “have a life.” They have said that we are hypocrites, that we have never worked a day in our life, that we just use people, and that we are deluded, slanderous, and frauds. While we could defend ourselves against these attacks point by point, we aren’t going to allow our blog to be hijacked in that way.
If you don’t like our story, then too bad! It’s our life, and we have to live with our decisions, just like everyone else in the world. You don’t have to like us or approve of us, and we don’t really care if you do or not. This is our blog, our story, and our opinions and thoughts. If you don’t like them then don’t read them.
So thanks to everyone who posted a decent comment and actually had manners! We reflected on everything and had much to think about. Now, we are actively in process moving the yurt and selling and storing our things. We have just one month to get everything off the land, and we are looking forward to completing this massive undertaking and turning the page into the next chapter of our story.
