I'll take character over reputation. Your character is what you REALLY are, while your reputation is merely what others THINK you are. Solid character will reflect itself in consistent behavior, while poor character will seek to hide behind deceptive words and actions.

I am me, I'm not here to bad mouth anyone or participate in their drama. I'm being stalked and harassed by a female member here through my 'inspiration' tab on the front page of my gallery, everywhere I go-award-comment, she's right behind and while myself and other people have written and told VB admin about this, they are officially looking into it ... thank goodness! I won't be part of the games. I'm jus simply here to share my photography and to motivate everyone around me with my work and my personality. I'm always real. What you see if what you get. I'm true to a fault and I find beauty in everyone.

I don't edit my photos too look better than I am, we are all flawed in special ways. I leave the veins in my eyes, the laugh lines, undereye circles, and other imperfections … we all have them, they're all part of the stories behind our eyes-soul. I don't put up an edited self portrait and call it "the real me" I put up an unedited one, because I'm proud of me. We are all beayoutiful in our own ways. Let's embrace it and motivate each other! Postin' this for the 'unedited' photo contest.

Eyes are captivatingly beautiful. Not because of the color but because of the words they hold within them" ♥ I love LOVE eyes... I'm forever posting shots-macros of my eyes lol so here's another one! Check out my eye album of my eyes! :):)

I want to send a BIG thank you for the huge number of views I get on each of my pictures, and for those that follow me through my inspiration feed EVERYDAY. It shows I've got art-pictures worth lookin' at and that alone is so inspirin' and humbling!! It speaks volumes, thank you!!

This is a beautiful self-portrait, Steph. I'm really saddened you are being harassed by some (no doubt) envious troll. When I look at these eyes I see the kindest and most generous of souls. I see a creative and artistic soul. I see an enthusiastic and encouraging soul. I see the soul of one of the most genuinely lovely people I am honoured to know. You inspire me and many others to achieve. What a gift! Thank you, my brilliant friend, for simply being you :)

Mystery lady.....I can still see you dimples ! lol

It's both creative and eye catching....too bad that the lower section of the message makes reference to harassment...I don't think this is the forum for that attitude.
Capture-Life February 08, 2017
I absolutely agree, LB! VB is lookin' into it though, they're trying to figure out how to beat the harassment. I agree. this isn't the place for that kind of attitude. Thank you to each and every one of you for the support. Means the world to me. :):)

It's about time VB banned this other member, her blatant copycat style and stalking like behaviour is so obvious even a blind man could see it.
Keep doing what you're doing Steph, it's awesome. :-))
