The power of no




Do you know those times when you write something or say something and you expect to get praises upon praises?
Sometimes it happens, but other times we hear NO.

Unless that person is simply trying to be a bully (or an internet troll) and doesn't say anything else, you shouldn't listen to it.

However, those two letter may sour your mood, they may weaken your mental state, heck, they may make you a disbeliever in your own strenght.
But instead of doing all that, simply smile, say "thank you" and move on.
Then there are the ones who give constructive criticisms. Sure, they may say it well at times or bad at other times, but they're taking time to explain something to you and you should listen. What you do with the information afterward is entirely up to you.

Remember, the only one who gets to say the true NO is you.
