Everyone has something we are passionate about, may it be photography, blogging, dancing or even cooking. But life isn’t always fair to everyone. Some discovers their talents or passions at an early stage, others may be later in life or even, never. This is where haters are born, through jealousy and envy. In the end, you just get hated on for doing something you like.
I realized again that haters are going to do just that, hate. That no matter what you do there are going to be people who for whatever reason, don’t like it. They won’t like your shirt, they won’t like your favourite movie and they won’t like your photograph and that doesn’t mean it’s not a good shirt, movie or photo it just doesn’t fit them. Deep down I think we know that, but with telling stories or sharing pieces of our lives and emotions through art we’re more sensitive over those comments of negativity, rudeness and sarcasm.
Just like those haters are gonna hate, the best thing that you and I can do as creators is create! Don’t allow those meek voices or opposition cloud your entire creative process because the voices and opinions of those that appreciate, respect and look forward to your work will always hold more worth, not simply because they’re positive but because they allow the confidence in yourself and your work to flourish and that will push you further. You have a unique voice, a unique skill that isn’t share with anyone else in the whole world, you have a story that has its own title and its own chapters and you are the only one that can tell it with 100% truth, never let the haters close that book and keep you from sharing your story with the world, we need to hear it.
Those people with the negative, mindless comments whether it’s online or in person are doing what they do best, doubt other people. If you’re a creator, you should do what you do best and create. Don’t close the door on your ideas, ignore that voice that tells you its cliche or not complex enough, create because it’s your time and your vision and that’s what you’re here to do.
