Not always and necessarily a bad thing - Walt Whitman wrote (I paraphrase here): if I contradict myself, very well I contradict myself. I am a universe; I contain multitudes. Sometimes consistency does matter; sometimes foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds ;-) (Ralph Waldo Emerson paraphrase).

Good on you to consider *constructive* criticism. But also, you do you when you’re doing your thing. 😎
