Each person wants to put their best work out to the world. Even when we say we do not care what other people think about our work, there is a part of us that does. This little voice in our head, that wants the slightest touch of acknowledgement and at the best, to be congratulated and praised for our efforts ❤
Why is it that we cannot share our work without caring about what others think? I believe that ‘share’ is the keyword here. The thing is, to share is to share. It is expressing any part of you to others. Your work is a piece of you and when others see that piece, it is on display for their response. How can we not expect anyone to respond to our work, when that is the point of sharing 🙂
Think about it, deep down in your heart of hearts (especially when you put a lot of effort into your work), at the end of the day you want some sort of feedback. Preferably positive feedback but like with anything, it is not always sunshine and rainbows. There are going to be people who do not like what you have produced or are doing, as we each have different values and beliefs ❤
You have to admit to yourself, that there are certain things that are not of your taste or mismatch your values. The people who put out work that you do not agree with, will more than likely receive feedback from you, that may be not entirely what they would like to hear. Since you already do not like the topics or certain parts of what they are doing, some sort of wall is automatically put up between the both of you.
Yes, we need to be willing to have an open mind when it comes to interacting with others. At times being tolerable and taking a chance with trying to understand why a person is doing things differently to ourselves. However, at the same time of holding back our judgement, we must not ever do something that compromises our values. Every person has the right to their own way of thinking, we have no right to expect a person to change for us and they cannot expect us to change for them ❤
In a perfect world we would all be agreeable and the presence of constant harmony would be amongst us. Everyone liking the same things. Saying yes to everything. Thinking of a world like that is scary. It would be boring for all to hardly take any risks, as everyone would be the same, eliminating the need for risks. There would be no chance to grow or gain strength, due to the lack of criticism.
As much as we need support from one another. We need to hear criticism. It is good to hear from someone who does not agree with you from time to time. As their feedback will give you the opportunity to think about their thoughts and possibly apply it to your life. Hearing the good and the bad is important. Just do not get too focused on the bad. You need to be you, as others need to be themselves 🙂
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a coloured pencil drawing of a lovely little joyful hamster in a flower. Hamsters are so funny and cheeky. I really want to see one in real life. I enjoy watching hamster video clips of them playing and doing silly things haha. It is now day 36 of my #drawingdailychallenge. I love how this hamster flower turned out. Animals combined with flowers are just way too adorable ❤
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! We each have the right to have our own thoughts about a person or topic. In moments of disagreements, still be kind to one another. Sometimes it can be best to agree to disagree. Nothing is worth inflicting pain on someone else, even if it is just words. Do not ever underestimate the power of words. Words are strong as they help form connections. Stay true to yourself. Spread love and kindness. Have a blissful day!
