Sometimes we need to be reminded of this. You know, those days when you’re feeling down and low and worthless. When you’re feeling insecure about your writing, and you’re thinking, is this worth my time? When someone’s criticism or bad review gets to your nerves and you just want to hide under the covers and stay there. When some people don’t take us seriously or appreciate us the way we want to.
This quote is for you, and for all of us writers who go through those kinds of days. Because no matter what others say or do, it doesn’t make us any less valuable. It doesn’t make our creativity any less good, or original, or distinctly ours.
This doesn’t mean that we don’t consider other people’s opinion about us or our works. We do, especially from people close to our hearts. And we try to change for the better, to improve our craft. But we don’t let them break our spirit and define us, or our creations.
