Once you give your art to the world, those beautiful things that you have made with your heart and soul belong partially to the ones you have shared them with.
It is not for you to dictate how others will interpret or experience your work. They will do so through the filters of their own experience and desires.
Creating and sharing art is a fulfilling, exciting, depressing, invigorating, painful, inspiring, rewarding gift of depth and beauty. Try not to weigh your personal value through the world’s reactions to your work, neither the good nor the bad.
