Who's your trampoline? Who's the person you can depend on to bounce off ideas when you get stuck or need an additional opinion? I'm not talking about receipients who provide you the desultory nod.
There's a good listener out there always waiting. But you must compel yourself to ask. No one is going to pop the question for you.
Be cautious of approval though. The creator seeks input and a fresh approach, not reassurance. Discontent becomes self-evident. Nothing lights the flame of a creator more than a tangle of insightful contradictions.
