Valley 2

The Reckoning


I write Sims 3 stories. I rarely reblog things. I like personal text posts - I'm here for friends, not Simbots. I am, according to a friend: sweet, fierce, kind, honest, silly, smart, giving, talented, and a fabulous friend. :)
I am posting this picture right now because it is beautiful. I have posted it before, but beauty is infinite and can be shared always forever at all times! Like love!  Love is also for infinite sharing!

Today is such a beautiful perfect day, and it’s even just 80 degrees! And my work schedule wasn’t overloaded for once today.

I am very happy and I like being alive so much. :) 

I don’t understand why people get mad at each other and fight wars and things when there is grass to look at. And trees! And the sky, omg the sky.

*hugs you all very much a lot*

I just wanted to remind you all that I love you very much, and I think that you are full of worth and beauty and goodness, and I am so happy that you are here and that you are my friend and that you are sharing your lovely creations and Sims and stories and thoughts and selves with us. :)

I’ve also been reading some studies on why people are so awful on the internet, and I just wanted to say that it’s important to remember that we are all real people, that a screen and distance does not make us unreal, and that what you say to people matters.

Also it’s been proven that reading literature helps you increase your empathy and emotional skills, so I invite you to read my stories. ;)

Cat litter training conversation

Me: Nova was pretty young when I brought her home.
Spousal person: But she was already litter trained.
Me: No she wasn't! I can tell you that my mother did not litter train her before we got her.
Spousal person: Well, I mean she'd already been taught to look for a place and to bury her waste so all we had to do was show her where the litter box was and she was like 'Okay, that's what this is for', as opposed to our guys who are still at the 'I feel this weird urge in my butt' phase.

awww she looks like our kitten “Pancakes”

Oooh really? Was Pancakes a diluted calico?

I’ve been thinking she’s my favorite since the beginning. :D

She was the first to open her eyes, at five days old. And she’s continued to be the first at most things, and she’s certainly the most active now. :)

There’s lots of those running around Pixel’s room now. :)

Huh

medleymisty:

I guess people who are all like “Hate blogs are cool and don’t hurt anyone and the internet doesn’t real” haven’t been the target of obsessive hatred for years, with personal attacks enabled by these harmless anonymous blogs.

I wrote this when I was all emotional and upset this morning, and then I thought about it today at work.

So here is my more reasoned take on the issue.

New love blogs pop up every once in a while, hate blogs pop up too in response, and in a week or so neither are active anymore. The community discusses anonymity and hate and love in that week, with everyone sharing the same opinion they did last time, and then we all go on and nothing ever changes. Except I unfollow the people who support the hate blogs, so there’s that I guess - it is a way to find out who you can trust.

I know that nothing is going to change this time either, but I don’t know. Maybe I’ll reach at least one person.

I wish that people wouldn’t be so quick to judge and blame the victims of the hate, that they wouldn’t say that the internet isn’t real or that people shouldn’t care what anonymous people say about them.

If someone is reacting more strongly to something than you think you would in their situation, there’s probably a reason for that. Instead of judging and blaming, you could reach out to them and just ask if they’re okay and show them some love, and maybe they’ll open up and explain things to you and then you’ll understand what’s going on.

Like with me. I have been called “crazy” quite a lot in the Sims community. And maybe if people just saw like one secret that was hating on Valley but wasn’t really personal, and then they saw my reaction, and they didn’t take the time to talk to me and chose to judge me instead, that’s what they’d think.

But actually there’s years of hardcore anxiety, emotional abuse, isolation, and trauma (and many secrets that were personal) behind my reaction to Simsecret. Which actually secrets about me are not allowed anymore, if that tells you anything about how bad it got.

It’s not an overreaction if you know the whole story. And if you don’t know the whole story it’s easy enough to either ask me about it, or to go on with your life without having to judge me and gossip about me.

So I guess what I’m saying is - I know that not everyone has had my experience with anonymous hate in the Sims community. And I know that if you’ve had a different experience, your opinion is going to be different. I’m just asking for you to respect my experiences and how they formed my opinion, and to think a bit before you go around blaming victims of anon hate for taking it too seriously. People who are getting a lot of hate need friends or even just a stranger to reach out and say hi and be nice. They don’t need even more judgement and rejection. Believe me, I know from experience. That’s the last thing they need.

The internet is real. It’s composed of real actual people. It’s not just you posting with millions of AI bots. And when hate is anonymous, you don’t know who is behind it. And when it is constant and vicious for years, like it was for me, you end up not knowing who you can trust so you just don’t trust anyone and you push everyone away and you end up so anxious that you can’t even read messages and comments from your friends because your brain tells you that they will be judging you and hating you and rejecting you, and you cannot take anymore of that. It screws up your head. It really does. It’s not a game, it’s not fake, it does matter, and it’s not so easy to just shake it off.

Thank you if you’ve read this far. *hugs*
