Artist's Way: Week 3

This week I was really touched by the last part of the chapter, when Cameron was talking about handling criticism, shame, and self doubt. I don't think I'm dealing with shame when it comes to my art, but there is definately self doubt. I realize that I'm doing myself and injustice when I say things like "Who cares what they think?" or "It doesn't matter."

I think about when I was a teenager and I would flippantly say to everything "I DON'T CARE!" or "WHAT-EVER!" My parents probably wanted to smack me! The truth is it does matter. It's good to be strong under criticism but it still hurts. It's okay to feel it, and then learn from it. Rather than be bitter about it and internalize it as self-doubt, which has been my pattern.
