As creative types, people are going to either love or dislike our product. It doesn’t matter if you’re a musician, artist, writer, designer, or dancer, there are going to be those that absolutely love what you do and those that don’t care for your style and aesthetic.
So how do you recover when someone doesn’t like your work:
- Allow yourself a few minutes to deal with the rejection and “lick your wounds”
- Remind yourself that this is only one person’s opinion
- Determine if there is any constructive feedback you can use to improve your skills
- Read positive feedback
- Get back to work
- Pray and Seek God
