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.
