Do you or did you used to ever have fears about sharing your music and songs?

Lauren Fairweather responded on 05/01/2014

I do have a fear that people will be mean to me in response to my music because I still get very easily damaged by criticism of my music. It's always been pretty tough for me to deal with. I get very attached to my music because of how personal it is for me and how hard I work on it, so that's something I have to deal with every time I share it with the world. Some people seem to think that all people who share their creative work online must have a hard shell and expect to be criticized, but when people are especially mean to me about it, I end up more likely to get myself off of the internet and take a long break from releasing anything new for a while than I am to grow and learn from it. It's something I've tried to work on for the last 8+ years.
