@LouMcField my roomate and her husband are musicians and she struggles with this. Her husband is more of a virtuoso, classical angsty creative and she struggles to make space for her own creativity and has fought against invalidating feedback from male musicians. She finds “the artists way” a helpful curriculum. She’s hosted groups, last one was all female artists, including me. Sometimes you can find/start Artist Way groups on Meetup.
@Mossberg thank you for your answer, it is good to know that kind of story in times of doubts :)
