You Can’t Please Everyone

A cat that seems to be disappointed.

Not everyone is going to like your art. In fact, most of the people will hate it. Some of them will even go to great lengths to let you know that they don’t like it — they’ll send you colorful emails, tweets and comments.

But that’s fine. You’re not doing it for them. As long as you have a small group of people who love your work, who support you and listen to you, you shouldn’t be concerned about the thousands who don’t care and who will never care.

Try to focus on those who are actually willing to listen to what you have to say. There might be only a few of them, but they’re the real reason why you’re here and why you should continue doing what you do.
