Writing What I Want to Write

I quit writing for a few days. I received a comment that my writing was "very very bad", and it hit me hard. So I didn't want to write on HubPages anymore. It hit me in the middle of a depression, and there's nothing like being kicked when you're already down. It took me a few days to realize that I can't let other people influence me like that.

I just have to buck up and keep on going. It shouldn't matter what other people think. Unfortunately, sometimes I forget that and let it get to me. I have to get over that. So, for now, I'm just going to ignore it.

I have to remember that it's OK that I'm not the best writer in the world, and that sometimes people won't like my writing. I just have to learn to be a stronger person, and not let them influence how I feel about myself.

I will continue to write, and write how I want to. I don't have to please everyone. It would be great to make everyone happy, but that's never going to happen. I will just keep doing what I'm doing, and hope that at least some people like my writing, and what I have to say. If not, well than I'm sorry. But I'm doing the best I can. If that isn't good enough for people, then it's not really my problem. They don't have to read what I write. There are plenty of other things to read on the Internet.

I've decided to not let this get to me anymore. I will no longer feel bad about it. I will just start writing again, and hope I do a good job. If I'm happy with it, then that's all I need. One rude comment out of dozens shouldn't get me down, and make me not want to write anymore. It should be incentive to improve my writing. I don't know if that will happen, but at least I can try.

You keep writing. I looked at your hubs and the topics are fascinating and interesting. You are an EXCELLENT writer. Don't let the HATERS, NEGATERS, and other negaholics get you down and stop you from expressing your God-given talent.

The purpose of Hubpages to me when I joined is for writers to be supportive. This should be a supportive writing social network where we build each other up, and want to see each other works blossom as writers. Unfortunately, cyber bullying is very present in the Internet. Cyber bullying is not good for anyone. In some cases, it drives people to commit suicide. We should not want anything ill to happen because of our "words." I have read recently on a poster that "the tongue does not have bones, but cuts like a knife." I am glad that you are continuing to persevere. This shows demonstration that you are a strong writer with passion and heart. All you need is passion and heart to be a writer. I will absolutely look forward to following you, and reading more of your work.

You can see from this post alone you have proper grammar and punctuation. You have a theme and supporting details. You're way ahead of the game here.

"I can't tell you the key to success, but I can tell you the key to failure is trying to please everyone" - Ed Sheeran

Or, to drive it home:

"I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing them all off is a piece of cake!"

Your topics are awesome - can't wait to read through your work here. Write on!

Yes. Write what make you feel good. Write what your inner self tells you to write. If some folks don't like what you write, it is their problem, not yours. Let them read something else... you don't need them. You need to satisfy your own needs first! ;-)
