Trolls don’t give feedback.

Trolls aren’t interested in helping you improve your work.

They don’t want to engage and start meaningful conversations.

They just want to provoke you.

The first step in evaluating what’s being said about your work is taking a good look at whose mouth is moving.

Do they care about you? About the work you’re doing? About the topic you’re talking about? Sure, give them a listen.

But if not, if they’re outside that circle, then they don’t have any right to take up space in your head.

Especially if they’re just being an asshole for the sake of being an asshole.
