The Difficulty of Receiving Compliments about Your Art

The best compliment someone can give you is that they like your art.

Your art can be what we traditionally think of as art—a painting, a song, or a poem.

Or it can be the way you handled a difficult situation among friends, a beautiful presentation you created, or even the way you work with kids.

But it’s hard to receive compliments about your art.

You appreciate the compliment about your art, but doubt they truly understand what you’ve done.

So when you’re an artist with the work that you do for your family, community, and company, your art can’t just be for those audiences. It also needs to be for yourself.

But you probably knew that already. That’s why you’re an artist.
