Honestly, I think Taylor Swift says it best! Just "Shake it off"
I'm keeping it pretty short and simple this week. A couple of days ago, someone approached me and asked if I had another job aside from my art career. I said "yes, I do." Her response was "See, that's the problem with being an artist. You just can't make it on art alone." I cracked a smile and said "It's possible, you just have to work at it."
Hits like that can come from anyone or anything...but it's not the person we should concern ourselves with. That person, place, or thing is simply a vehicle attempting to deliver the negativity. Just remember this: the enemy wouldn't be fighting you if he didn't know you had something great in your future.
