Today, a new client told me that he hated my work, that he was totally disappointed with what I had submitted. Ouch. That hurt. As a full-time freelancer in my second month, this brought up all kinds of fears. Have I made the right decision quitting my job? Will I ever earn enough to fully sustain myself from freelance copywriting? Am I good enough? 

It's not easy to get over this. I know that this is just part of the job. Not everyone will like my work. For every few clients who I love working with, I might meet one who is straight up an asshole. The thing is, I can't hide behind a boss anymore. There is no one to rescue me. I HAVE to deal with anything that comes my way myself. Sounds scary, when I write it down like that. 

I have to remind myself why I am doing this. Because I enjoy the freedom of being able to work from anywhere in the world, in my pyjamas. Because I decide how I work and who I work for. Because I can do what I love. This is worth fighting for. 

Keep on going! I got this!

    @juliasaxena I also don't like negative feedback. Though it could be useful when it describes what exactly was not good.

      @annachalova Absolutely! Feedback has to be constructive.
