If you have dealt with them, you probably know they can be relentless in their pursuit of you. I had one woman in particular stalk me on social media about 4 years ago, and without a doubt, I know who it is.
I’m not one to complain or to have a victim mentality. And I won’t stress out over it because I have enough people who know me well enough not to get hoodwinked by smears.
I know that being afraid is exactly what she wanted, and I didn’t give her the satisfaction. However, I was a little concerned. Who wouldn’t be? Being cyber-stalked isn’t fun.
This woman needed help. She sent me nasty messages and stalked all of my social media pages. And at different times in the last four years- several times in 2018, she’s returned again since. She’s one of those stalkers that attacks you, disappears for a while, then comes back again with more hatred.
This is all because I deleted her from my friend’s list for making offhand comments and sarcastic remarks to some of my posts.
I’ve blocked her. However, she has had her sister, her son, and a few others stalk me and even stalk my husband and kids. We have since blocked all of them.
It just goes to show that she’s a coward and doesn’t have much going for her. Because if she did, she wouldn’t resort to any of this.
Her latest act is stalking me on a few other pages such as Amazon and Google books.
She was at her craziest in 2018 when she threatened to look up my address, then get on a bus and come pay me a visit (She lives out of state now).
I’m glad she thought I was worth the travel expenses! (Hee-hee!)
Understand that with someone as sick-minded as she, all threats should be taken seriously, And I put a few friends on alert just in case she tries anything with them.
So, know this:
1. When you have a cyber-stalker, do respond. But never react!
2. Never stay silent about it but put the word out to family and friends who love you because it can make all the difference in whether or not your attacker is caught should they take it to the next level and try to hunt you down.
3. At the same time, keep an eye on all your business online and be aware of your surroundings when you’re out.
4. Do your best to walk confidently and look like someone a criminal would think twice about messing with.
Do these things, and you’ll surely feel better, be better able to relax and enjoy life.
With knowledge comes empowerment!
