Judged or Ignored
These are really your only two options if you decide to build or pursue anything.
People will judge you if: they don’t like or agree with your work or style; they respect and appreciate your work or style; or they are envious that you have the balls to put yourself out there in the first place.
People will ignore you if: you do nothing out of fear; or you do not work harder to grow and be louder.
