This is a special blog post today, my warrior survivor friends. I don’t normally publish twice on Wednesdays, but this situation needs to be addressed. Again. This isn’t so much as a “turning on each other” post as it is dealing with a page that has turned on mine.
I want to make something perfectly clear, my friends. It was never my intention to “copy” another page’s work. If anything was similar, it was done out of an innocent mistake. A coincidence, if you will.
This page felt it to be a stab in the back. An outright act of plagiarism instance. This page publicly commented on one of my blog posts, accusing me of copying their work. I took it to private messaging via Facebook.
I offered up an apology, saying if anything seemed the same that it wasn’t my intention. I even offered to completely redo my blog post! Which I did do, by the way.
This still wasn’t good enough for this page.
This page sent me nasty Facebook messages. This page continued to publicly slam me for “copying” and stealing their work.
Now, I must say here that this page has not publicly called out my blog by name, nor called me out by my real name either. However, to still post about it publicly on Facebook is still slandering the work that all Facebook Narcissistic Abuse Recovery support communities are trying to accomplish.
And what are we all trying to accomplish?
Well, the point I was trying to make to this page is that we are all on the SAME team. The team that brings awareness to Narcissistic and Emotional Abuse. We are survivors. We are trying to just simply help others traverse the rough waters that is their healing journey.
Yet this page accuses me of just “copying and pasting” other people’s work?? I ask you this, my warrior survivor friends……if you go through my over 125 blog posts over this last year, I’d like you to tell me what was plagiarized? Every single guest post that I have published thus far has been reprinted in their entirety WITH PERMISSION.
The blog post that this page has accused me of copying is NOT an original idea, by the way. Scores of recovery pages like mine have written about it. I tried (albeit unsuccessfully) to tell this page that IDEAS are not copywrited. Only words are. Whole and complete sentences, and even paragraphs, can be plagiarized. NOT IDEAS. Does this page think that they are the only ones to ever have an original idea? Does this page think that they are the only ones to ever write about that topic??
Does this page think that I’m going to be bullied into staying silent? Does this page honestly think that I won’t stand up for my ORIGINAL work?? I will NOT be bullied. Not by my NX. And certainly NOT by the page making outrageous accusations and slandering me.
In the future, if anyone has a problem with my work, please send a private message to Freedom And Healing From Narcissistic And Emotional Abuse. This is the page that I currently manage. A page, by the way, that my page will be merging with (Freedom From Narcissistic And Emotional Abuse). A page, by the way, that once my page merges with it, will be a community of over 60,000 survivors. A community that I am in charge of (with the help of a few other admins, of course).
It's like the old adage goes, "You get more honey with flies than with vinegar." Meaning, if you are nice to me, I am nice to you. If you are mean to me, I will not be nice to you. Don't expect me to roll over and play dead. Don't expect me to "sit down and shut up" just because you feel cheated. Act like an adult and we can work things out.
