A PUBLIC FIGURE
Lesson 101: Although I have become a public figure, don’t forget that I am just a regular person such as yourself with flaws. I do not seek approval from the outside, but from within.
I have been very busy with my new role in the world. I have sought your friendship because many people have searched for a way to get to know me. I have been interacting with you all the time, even at odds hours. Those days might come abruptly to an end, as my work pulls me closer to liberating The Children.
So, please do not send me private messages about how offended you are about something I posted as if I owe you something. This is social media. That means posts are subject to different interpretations. Everyone is free to express how they feel about the posts in the comment section as long as we do not start insulting each other personally.
No one has forced you into this relationship. If you get offended easily, check with a close friend. If you want to learn more about a post, ask how it was intended not how you feel it was intended. Whenever I don’t get a comment, I often ask for clarity with one simple word, “uh?” This removes me from judging the person based on my own biases or perceptions.
Another thing, I am not a public figure running for office. I do not need your vote. Therefore, I am free from the influence of money and votes. I am living off your GoFundMe contributions since I am doing activism full time. But you give freely, I suppose – not to tie me into your own personal agenda.
