The past few months have been an extremely trying time for me. Giving everything I have to different projects and not having them received the way I would have hoped. It's not so bad that people didn't understand them but the way they attacked them. Belittled them and how the people who helped me create them jumped ship so fast. It's easy for people to join in mocking someone who pours their heart and soul into a project when they invest nothing in it themselves. It took a toll on me and made me do some hard thinking about my life and where I'm going. The love and hate I'm getting now is nothing compared to what it will be like on a world stage. Can I handle it? Can I take the pain and turn it inward? Can I use it to push forward and keep making projects? Keep being me? The answer is yes. If people don't like what I create than that's on them. I like my work and it makes me feel alive making them. You can't let other people bring you down. You can't change who you are to make other people happy.
