Former Hater Comes Around, but Not Without Damage
I recently got this letter from a long-time follower. I will withhold her name because that’s not the point. Take a read:
Hey,

You probably don’t remember all the hate mail you have received. Unfortunately, I was one of those women that commented on your blog plenty of times and sent you an email, it was a back and forth exchange, it happened years ago, but at that time I was 21 or 20.

I’m 26 years old now, and I owe you a tremendous apology. I am a 26-year-old black woman that just realized my place in the world and my value in my own community. I’m not going to get into all my life experiences, but life, college, and relationships have taught me a lot.
I am very sorry I was a woman who participated directly and indirectly in tearing your platform down, slandering your character, and calling you a liar. I don’t think those things anymore and I’m really sorry that your platform has been discredited by a community that really needs it.
Even when I was hating on you, I continued to watch. Now I watch because I believe in your cause.
I’m very sorry very sorry for the words I spoke against you and me very sorry for that terrible email exchange.
Now I can somewhat forgive youthful idealism and ignorance. We’ve all be there. But that doesn’t mean that all can be forgotten. This young girl contributed to the string of hate post ever present and just a click away. Those angry words, lies, and miscommunication will forever be present like ghosts that haunt the hallway. While I am glad that the writer has made adjustments to self-correct her ideas and philosophies and has time to live a fulfilling life of promise, the damage this young girl did to me and my brands will be there forever. And ever.
