People are often criticised for their writing, dancing, composing, etc. But when you criticise that, you criticise them.
Big surprise, I know.
The thing is, people write and compose because it's their bodies way of saying that the spirit is being crushed, turned down and tormented. It's their way of releasing built up steam. People put themselves into their work because they believe that if they do, then it will feel like somebody cares; that maybe the world isn't as bad as they had thought and that they might have a chance to make something of themselves. It's a safety mechanism that's put together as we grow up and learn the ways of the world. Some are built faster, finished by the time they're in grade six; and others take years, not until they're almost done high school.
If you criticise a person, you're pushing against that barrier and saying that they're worthless and can offer nothing to the world. You push them to the brink with such harsh emotions and thoughts towards themselves that they become this monster of anger and disgust that can't be released.
The worst part about it, there's no way out. This is their way of letting everything go and even when they're criticised they're going to keep composing because that's what they do. But soon enough they'll see everything they do as crap and the only thing they can do about it is stop. But the moment that happens, they have no way to release anything that they feel. So it builds and builds until they burst.
But hey, I guess you don't care.
