A True Artist Doesn't Apologize

A true artist doesn't apologize.

A true artist tries the best she can, puts her heart and soul into her work and puts it out there.

No work of art is loved by all and no work of art will ever be loved by all.

There'll always be haters and shamers - you have to learn to tune them out.

The words and actions of haters and shamers say everything about them and absolutely nothing about you and your art.

Someone who feels a need to tear down another person's attempt to create something beautiful is a sad, hollow and pitiful soul.

That said, constructive criticism is priceless, especially when it comes from someone who you know has your best interest in mind.

Since the dawn of time, every single artist has struggled with self-doubt.

Is my work good enough?

Am I good enough?

Do I deserve success?

Always remember that striving for greatness is a heroic journey and taking the first step is a huge victory in and of itself.

The very act of putting yourself and your art out there is one of the bravest things you could ever do.

So don't let anyone steal the fire in your eyes.

A true artist doesn't apologize.
