Hey Emet,

Well your comment doesn’t matter… (see what I did there?)

Really what I’m trying to illustrate I guess is being taken at the whim of what others think at a moment’s notice. For much of my life I was so concerned of the thoughts of others. It held me back from writing — being concerned about criticism, opinion, feedback etc.


It helps you become a better writing and a better person overall. You are able to glean insight you’d otherwise be blind to.

The critical piece is to listen intently but filter what is really just noise and what is information that you can use to grow.

Good to hear from you, Emet Baker!
