This is important to remember. A lot of people won’t get writers or other artist. They understand their vision, or what drives them. What you wrote is so important to remember to keep from being hurt and disappointed in other people’s reactions.
Just like we can’t understand why people don’t pursue their dreams or want to be creative, they don’t get what drives us. People also have different definitions of success.
Good for you for putting in the hard work to reach your goals.
