The void

I cannot believe that I am actually experiencing such a feeling at the moment. I feel rejected and empty. Its ironic how I write about accepting other people’s opinions and yet when I receive a relatively negative response to my writing, I feel this way. I have not as yet been given their actual opinion on my writing, but I hope that I can get this soon. It would be interesting to know how their thoughts differ from mine. Perhaps my thoughts have been negative or narrow-minded in my last few entries.Sometimes I feel that I write in too much of a safe environment. Readers are overwhelmed by the creativity and high vocabulary used and actually overlook the gist of the contents of my writing. I need to be very open to criticism and accept objective responses to it. In order to me to learn and progress, I need feedback from people who will actually look deeper into the meaning of what I write. Constructive criticism is essential.
