      Okay, but you know, I have to judge it big_smile

      Firstly, you cannot, I repeat, cannot, take an image from Google images and republish. We tell people over and over that they must use images correctly. This is what HubPages says,

      "It is NOT OK to use an image that you have just found on Google Images. Many people search on Google Images and just credit "Google Images" for their photos. This is incorrect. Google Images did not create that image, nor does it host it." … -image-use

      Secondly, you need to learn how to format a hub correctly. All those white gaps are unnecessary. Make use of text capsules and make sure to delete excess 'returns'.  Write in proper paragraphs and use bullet points often. … iting-Tips

      Use title case for your sub-headings.

      As regards the content, well, to be honest, it sounds as though you are feeling sorry for yourself. There is a lot you can do to improve your writing. Your English is excellent, so no worries there. There are a few little grammar issues but none that would prevent approval. I've seen a lot worse lately. Try reading it out loud, you may pick up some errors.

      Your hub is trying to be positive, but it comes over as a bit negative, sort of, "I know how you feel, it's crap that we're all judged and why can't we just say what we want to without all those horrible people judging and criticising....?" Well, that, unfortunately, is how it works. Especially on a site like this. You *are* judged on the quality of your writing. If you weren't you will never improve and you may as well write in a private journal. You want to be a writer? Then you have to accept criticism. You have to keep learning your craft.

      Title: Is anyone searching for that title? Would you be typing it in a search engine as it stands? Try, 'Encouragement for Frustrated Writers' or 'Writing with Confidence', though I don't think those are much good either. Spending time looking for the perfect title is always a good idea.

      Hope that helps.

    There are many writing issues. Try to avoid adverbs and construct positive sentences.
