Don’t take it personal…

Have you ever worked really really hard at creating something?  A painting? Sculpture? Drawing? Website?  Only to find that people don’t really like it that much?  Then when you feel a little depressed about it, someone says “Don’t take it personal. It’s not YOU they don’t like, it’s the {fill in the blank}”.  Well, I don’t find this statement helpful at all.  Yes, I understand that it’s not me as a person they are disliking, but that thing I just put my heart and soul into is definately somewhat of a representation of me, so it makes sense that it feels personal when someone doesn’t like it. 

So, fully understanding that it’s not actually personal, I still reserve the right to be bummed when someone doesn’t like my art.  So there!
