Only seek validation of your personal artistic endeavors if it’s okay for you to get little or none. Otherwise, don’t seek it.
If validation comes along anyway, let it come. But don’t get drunk on its offerings. It may turn around and leave.
If validation never comes (during your lifetime), your artistic endeavors are none the worse. They were there for you and you gained energy from their presence. That is enough.
