Praise and Blame are the Same

Wow, you have a great eye for this, you do amazing work!

Thanks, she replied nonchalantly.

Don’t you know who that is?  He doesn’t give praise easily and you don’t seem to care about what he said to you!

Praise and blame are the same, and if I allow someone’s words build to me up, then he also has the power to tear me down. Someone once told me that I had no talent and was wasting my time in this industry. I cried for days and even thought of giving up until I realized I was good and I couldn’t allow others to hinder me.

You can’t listen to everyone, not all people have an eye for this business. Besides, who would say such a thing?

The person who just said my work was amazing.
