We try, they dissuade us. We try harder, they say we are just being silly. We give it our all, they say we should stop wasting our time because we are simply “not good enough.”
My question is that should we even try to explain to these “experts” how wrong they are or not. As honestly, do you think they even care?
The very fact that you are trying again and again and again proves that you care very, very much about whatever it is that you want to succeed in. No matter at what stage of progress you are at, you will be good enough — in case, you are already not.
So don’t say anything to them. Anything at all. Just show them. Show them what you are made of. Show them your success.
Hopefully, this struggling author will one day have her books to show.
