Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. - Ambrose Redmoon
Sometimes we stop ourselves. Often fear can be such a destabilizing emotion that we are unable to progress and move forward with what we need to do in our lives. This also happens deeply in music production. We second-guessed decisions that we make and worry about how others will judge us.
It is so important to understand that nobody will ever love or hate your music as much as you do. Always just do the best you can do as the person you are now. Try not to worry or stress about how other people will perceive your work. You can never control people’s moods, or how they’re feeling a particular day that might affect how they react to things. Always remember to do the best that you can now. Just keep pushing forward.
