What's the best advice you've ever received?
The best piece of advice that I ever received is that someone else's opinion about you is none of your business. There are so many critics in this world, both professionally and otherwise, & everyone is entitled to their own opinions, however those perspectives should never dictate how you feel about yourself or how you view others because at the end of the day, that perspective doesn't belong to you. You gotta take it all with a grain of salt and continue crafting your art in your own unique way :).
