Living a creative life is a joy and challenge. You do not need to be apologetic or ashamed for what you create and express in your own space and share with others. If someone comes along and distorts what you present to attack and demean you, that is their problem, projection, and karma. Love yourself and your creativity. Go on and leave them to stir in their own dirt.
Keep on keeping on creating and living a creative life.
“You do not need anybody’s permission to live a creative life.” ~Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
