We’re with you, Taylor. I have an army of Voodoo dolls ready for my bad ones :=)
I got a bad review. Or rather my book did.
Everyone gets bad reviews. I know that.
Weeeeelll…my head knows it. My heart has trouble remembering. It’s a pretty easy thing to forget when you get that nasty review.
Dealing with a bad review isn’t easy. Though everyone has their own way, I thought I’d share what has worked for me.
1. Writing about it. It might sound ironic but writing about painful stuff helps me. I either journal about it or I write it into a blog post :-). Writing is cathartic and helps me get it out.
2. Sending out positive energy. I find that if I send it out, it comes back to me. So, when I need support, I try to send it out. When I need a kind shoulder, I try to be kind to someone around me. If nothing else, at least I feel better about myself.
