Your Page is Yours, My Page is Mine

In the realm of social media, where every voice can be amplified, the challenge of dealing with assumptions is something I haven't yet fully come to terms with. It's crazy when individuals venture onto my page with unsolicited advice, dictating what I "should" or "shouldn't" do or say. It's important to remember that this is my space, my canvas, and I am free to express myself as I please.

Despite the growing traction of my online presence, it's accompanied by a fair share of hate, judgment, and assumptions. The hate and judgment, though harsh, are almost amusing to me. I know that the negativity thrown my way isn't a reflection of who I am, but more of a mirror of the pain the commenter might be experiencing.

The audacity of some people who feel entitled to dictate how I should conduct myself on my own platform is mind-boggling. It brings to light larger societal issues, such as the pervasive cancel culture, which I completely disagree with. It's crucial to acknowledge that we are all human, each operating at our own level of existence, doing the best we can at any given moment. Disagreement does not equate to wrongdoing.

The internet, while an amazing tool in so many ways, has unfortunately nurtured a culture of criticism towards anything that deviates from one's personal worldview. This is a highly dangerous trend, because it is diversity in thoughts and perspectives that enriches our world. I believe that most people are inherently good and well-intentioned, and I deeply yearn for a world where we can extend grace to one another, appreciating the fact that everyone is navigating life the best way they know how.

To the haters, the judges, and those who impose their standards on me and my art, know that I have thick skin and can handle your critiques. However, remember that art is meant to provoke thought and elicit reactions. So if my work evokes a strong response from you, be it negative or positive, it simply means I'm fulfilling my role as an artist. Thank you for the validation.
