I heard a quote from Bruce Springsteen and it has stayed in my mind for day so it is worth writing down. This is what he said – “I am convinced that every artist has been told that they are the greatest at least once and they have also been told that they are worthless at least once and they believed it both times.”
I have been criticized and praised and I have believed both. Criticism is not always truth since it is often based on opinion. Above all I try to get myself to remember that honesty and truth are not synonomous. I plan to keep writing!
