The worst they can say is no
People say "the worst they can say is no", but that in itself is horrible. It makes you feel really bad. Matter of fact they recommend avoiding the word no when disciplining your children, because it can hurt their self-confidence. I know you aren't supposed to let things get to you or care what people, but as an artist when it comes to your art it hurts when someone says no or that is garbage or anything like that. You don't want anyone to say anything bad about something you put your heart into. It really isn't easy taking that no or trash talk when it comes to your heart.
