If you provoke any sort of emotional response from readers you’re definitely onto something and doing something right!
I’ll admit, it takes super thick skin to publish something or state a view and have the majority disagree openly or publicly. I’ve had it happen once or twice — and while it’s not necessarily pleasant — I suppose I prefer it to pandering or catering to an audience or not provoking a response at all.
Thanks for reading and for the thoughtful response! Have a wonderful day.
