Being Likeable

For both my work and my personality, I often find it freeing to remind myself that some people just won’t like it. No matter what we do, we’re bound to rub up against some form of pushback or distaste.

If we’re always trying to satisfy the needs of everyone encountering our work then we are being distracted from the work itself. Pursuing that impossible goal will weaken the impact.

I’m trying to get back into a groove with editing my play Honey Dew Me. Overthinking the many possible reactions to these rewrites is making me stuck. Soon I’ll just have to chug back my coffee, release myself from caring about it being likeable, and get to work.
