It can be difficult to pursue responsibilities, whether that be with your career, your ministry, your family, etc. You will often be under the scrutiny of people. We can not live without the criticism of others. While constructive criticism should be welcome, there are people out there who are destructive with their words. Do not be discouraged by them. Continue to go on. You can not hide your gifts and vision for fear of attack. You must continue to expose the beautiful gifts you are given. Be courageous and know that there are people out there who will love and support your work.
“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
