Sorry y’all, I was a bit quiet for some time due to a case of identity theft…
Briefly mentioned on my Grindr post, I did have a past with identity theft. Back then, it didn’t really phase me, but now it did because I did some stupid stuff that might have been the catalyst of what I went through in January.
Basically, I had images stolen from my social media pages. The person (who was a mutual friend) was able to get high quality ones because my Facebook was open, I have made it extremely private now. As for Instagram, due to the nature of what I do, I will leave it open.
Identity theft can feel like a ‘compliment’ at first, thinking ‘aw, that’s cute’. It’s not! It’s not fun getting abusive messages, going out and guys giving you bad stares because they think you rejected them or getting groped. It’s worse when you find out friends who turned their back on you because you wouldn’t reply to their advances on the dating apps. This affected me the most because it’s not fun finding out ‘friends’ who have ulterior motives. But hey, that is life!
Luckily my best-friend was there with me, it infuriated me that he even faced some of the abuse. But he assisted to find out the potential suspect who ‘was’ close to us. Let’s just say, some people do not handle rejection well! Also, I must give a huge shout out to a person that stood by me throughout the process and watched me spiral but never left my side. You know who you are, and I am extremely grateful for our connection! You just caught me in bad timing but I’m happy things are heaps better now!
Anyways, this is going to be my last ‘personal’ post inside my life because of my revelation about accessibility to my life and oversharing. But I will continue to give a researched judgement on other topics and focus more onto gratitude and positive thinking. As one of my life goals is to help millions and positive thinking is a direction that I have recently found to be very effective and rewarding!
Mad love, H.
