Dear Fellow Crafters,
The fear of criticism is both a block to your creativity and a defeater to confidence. Fear of criticism can be far worse than the comment itself. Fear can paralyze you. However, you don’t live in a vacuum. There are times when your creations are not “your best.” Maybe you felt ill that day, or you were ‘out of ideas’ and just ‘threw something together on paper.’ Those days happen to everyone.
Look inside yourself at your goal. You have the creative power inside you. You can’t please everyone but you can tell your dissenters that if they didn’t like “x” than they’re going to absolutely love “Y!”
