Critics

I have an aversion to criticism. I suppose we all do in our own way, and I’ve always been aware of it, but lately I’m recognizing the damage that can do. It has, from time to time, stopped me from being who I really am, or at least stopped me from fulfilling my potential as a worker among workers. That’s bad no matter what you do but it’s especially bad for those who make things and put them out there as gifts to whoever in the world might come across them and feel they need them and can use them or simply enjoy them: It’s bad for artists.
