Very well said. How many little souls have been crushed and not strong enough
to try again and again. I was one of those and it wasn;t until I was 25 and
took
an art class just for fun that I got my first A - my first A in all my
academic years.
Had someone encouraged me along the way I might have blossomed alot sooner.
Perfection and criticism can be a killer! Roberta
