The Art of Not Getting Butthurt
I don’t always feel articulate when I speak, but I thought I’d try a vlog-ish version of my blog today. Art is hard for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is dealing with my clinical self doubt, a constantly bruised and limping ego, a grand sense of entitlement and a pretty rocking persecution complex. It would be funnier if it wasn’t so true! Anyways, here’s the video and a rambling train of thought, struggling not to derail.
Thanks for hanging with it! To sum it up: Not everyone with an opinion about your work is right. Not everyone in a position of power over you with an opinion is right either. I’m quick to internalize certain criticism. And some criticism is certainly warranted. However, knowing when to listen and when to shrug it off is the hard part. Today I shrugged it off. Cross you fingers for tomorrow.
