Trying to piece myself back together
Screw those publishing industry pundits!! So annoying that they have this influence over your well deserved success. For every 1 person that gets "turned off" by your personality there are 2 more who love it like me. Transparency and principles over everything. Your talent is real. F the spies.
Also taking this gem with me as I consider my own writing and food journeys: “My rule of thumb: be friendly, but not friends.”
You've been completely transparent on all channels. I'm sorry to hear someone broke your trust. Glad life offline is going well--that's where I've been these days for the most part.
Betrayal by someone you thought was a friend is devastating. It does shatter your trust and piece of mind. I am sorry that some jealous asshat did that to you, wish we could kick the ever loving shit out of them for being the shit ass they obviously are. It takes time to come back from that kind of hurt. Take care of yourself and let me know if you need anything.
I've been asking people how you've been. Wondering where you went. Thank you for sharing this and I'm so sorry that You don't feel safe
The way this was a read. Now I need to go back to understand what happened.
I’m sorry someone took advantage of you like that 💔 You deserve so much better, and more.
Fucking lame & I’m sorry. Especially bc you’re a writer we’d rather hear from versus the same conveyer belt of publishing industry approved voices. It’s not uncommon - A friend had the same thing happen during custody hearings where their ex got a snitch to share everything posted about their kid bc they were looking for dirt to take to the judge.

Bummed. Sorry to hear about this violation of your trust. In Italian, it would be labeled a "bruta figura"... ie a barbaric act. Nevertheless, please take the time to grieve and heal and come out stronger moving ahead. Yes, you are not going to fit in some "box definition" that others may try to force you into. Your talents speak for themselves... keep your true homies close.
I’m sorry. I guess I missed something…what’s going on
