I have realized that I am not good with criticism. I know it is a part of life and everyone will not like what you do but still.Good or bad it gets to me. When someone says something bad about my writing it hits me hard and makes me feel terrible. I feel like after a bad criticism that I am a horrible writer and that nothing I do is ever good. It’s that whole all or nothing mentality. And then sometimes I feel like who are you to talk bad about my work. Sometimes a piece of work is so personal I feel defensive like no one has the right to judge it. But in that case, why release it if I can’t take the criticism? It’s frustrating. I know that everything I write will not be perfect but I really need to toughen up and be open to whatever criticism may come my way.
I’m Working On It!!!
