Hey Hackers and Makers 👋
I am curious, how do you handle criticism when someone tells you 'Why are you making product X? Y does the same thing and even more already, what's the point?!', at the start of your journey?
Even if you know that the product you are building will eventually be better or have strong USPs in the future, it's not there yet. So users from your competitors criticise you for trying to make an alternative and judging it based on the current feature set
How do you handle stress associated with such criticism?
