stop caring about what other people think about what you make.
if you're making something
or doing something
just to gain someone's approval?
find your story and tell it: tell the real story that pulsates inside of you.
if you're doing something to make the world a better place and someone doesn't love it, maybe you should just stop listening. maybe, to an extent, you need to stop caring.
caring about what
of what you make
will do nothing good
for the world
as a creator there is only ever
that you need to do:
get quiet with yourself, ask yourself why you're doing what you're doing:
because you love truth? because you want to make the world a better place? because you have this thing burning inside of you and it HAS to be given a voice?
good. awesome. you're on the right track.
so what does it matter what other people think? be so busy creating that you don't even have time to THINK about the opinions of others. you don't do what you do for them. you don't make what you make for the approval of someone else.
you make what you make because you have to.
because you have no other choice.
you create because it is an outpouring of your being.
and external opinions
take what's constructive from those who love you,
take what builds you,
take whatever serves your soul.
and hit the mute button on the rest.
keep making your thing, beautiful creator.
keep putting yourself out there even when it's sometimes painful,
even when its hard.
that beautiful thing that you're passionate about creating? you're passionate about it for a reason.
don't let anyone take that light away from you.
take a deep breath, put the ear plugs in, keep your focus out in front
and keep creating.
