My reaction to your story is threefold: (1) good perspective, well written; (2) but for the grace of God I easily could have found myself in the same predicament; (3) if you’re going to put yourself out there in a personal way you need to have a thick skin. I’m reminded of an old parable, the story of which is too long for this but the moral of which is “you can’t please everyone.” And the internet being what it is and people being what they are no matter how nice your story it will draw a self-righteous and sometimes vile response from at least a few out there in anonymous land. Don’t let it stop you!
