Are any women musicians having advice for times of self doubt?

My partner thinks about stopping music because she had really bad experiences with fellow musicians especially men affecting dramatically her self confidence.

Advice & support would be appreciated :)

Thanks ! Boost !

@LouMcField trans woman producer here, the music scene is quite toxic and people will shit on you for the dumbest of reasons, being anything from genre to what tools you use/how you use them.

Best thing is to just do your own thing, make music for fun and yourself, not for others. Generally the people who are assholes are people who themselves have no confidence in their music, or too much confidence in something they’ve half baked.

@LouMcField music is art, and anyone that tells you that the music you made is crap are not worth your time. Of course you should still be open to constructive feedback. But feedback DOES NOT equal to being an asshole.
