Don’t paint, sing, dance, perform if it’s not in your vision. If you are the type of person that needs to have everyone look through your lenses then don’t put them on. For whether you’re Pavarotti, Picasso or simply Pete there will be haters out there as well as people who won’t get it and don’t seek too. You will never be universally loved and the more you would get to that level the more you will appear to be a sell out by others. Paint, write, sing, act, dance because it’s something in your blood even if you must bleed alone.
