Because that’s the reality: When you’re habitually creating and sharing your work, you can’t hit a home run with every swing. Someday, you’re going to write something, or create something, and it’s going to suck. And you’ll try to pretend it doesn’t, but you can’t avoid it forever. Then, you’re going to feel bad. And you’re going to question everything. And you know what? That’s alright.
