My experience, as both giving and receiving feedback is, the longer one spends on creating a piece of content, the stronger they feel about the feedback received. Especially negative feedback. They identify with the piece of content they created because they have poured their heart and soul into it. Any negative feedback will go down in history about as well as your cat pooping in your shoes.
The first time I took out an ABN (Australian Business Number) in 2001. I gave birth to my son the same year. It was also the same year I got my drivers license, days before he was born. We were living on my husband’s wage in a garden suburb of Sydney, Australia. Paying the mortgage was a struggle but we coped, like many other young families.
