After reading, rereading the message and showing it to her boyfriend, Olivia decided that there was only one thing left to do.
She would answer him.
She wrote: Hello! Normally I would not respond to a message like this, but it is so full of hate and comments that are obviously meant to hurt me. Fortunately, I have thick skin and it does not hurt, but it scares me that you probably send these horrible messages to many other people and it would affect them.
"I've never said that I'm ungrateful for the life I've had and I never want to be the victim or that someone feels sorry for me, I'm just trying to share my experience (that you do not know half) of) to break the stigma and help to others to talk.
& # 39; I do not know what your origin is, but obviously you're not very happy. I hope you can get help and concentrate on yourself instead of trying to hurt others. "
Speaking to FEMAIL about the experience, the 26-year-old girl (in the photo) confessed that it has been hard to ignore the effects of the message, but she wants to share her experience to help others.
Olivia responded and shared the experience in her Instagram story (in the photo), hoping that she could point out that cyberbullying is unacceptable.
"I hope that by holding them responsible for the horrible things they told me, they might think twice next time before sending someone a horrible message," Olivia told FEMAIL (pictured: her exchange).
The troll wrote to Olivia and wrote: "You must have thick skin, that's why you're responding." If your skin was thick, you would not respond.

When speaking with FEMAIL about the experience, the 26-year-old confessed that it has been difficult to ignore the effects of the message:
"I think social networks can be so powerful and positive when you use them the right way, but it's people like this pixie that make others see social networks in a negative way," Olivia told Daily Mail Australia.
"The main reason why I thought it was important to face this person, and the trolls in general, is that they need to know that their actions have consequences, they are affecting a real human being.
"I hope that by holding them accountable for the horrible things they told me, maybe they'll think twice next time before sending someone a horrible message."
