I hate asking for criticism from friends and family, because instead of getting brutally honest feedback, I get praises instead telling me what I’ve done right.
Even when I tell them it’s okay and that I won’t be offended by their words, they still hold back.
As a writer, I get asked a lot of questions about how to grow on Medium. I try to answer each one thoroughly, expanding on things that have worked for me.
But occasionally, I get really frustrated.
The other day, I received an email.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen a month from now after college. I’m not even sure what I want to do. Any advice?”
Yeah — just stop worrying.
