There's a fading yet still malignant idea that pervades a bit too strong for my liking. That being someone else telling you what you're allowed to like, or, what's good in some objective sense.
To that I say...'Sod off.'
Look, it's hard enough to be yourself and like yourself without someone telling you who, or what, you're supposed to be.
Just like what you like and be whoever you are.
If you're thinking of a piece of criticism, and it's not something you would tell a friend, then don't tell anyone else either. Including yourself. Talk kind to yourself and you'll learn to talk kind to others.
Let's be excellent to one another,
do great art,
and do our part,
to make the world more beautiful
