This is what makes art difficult.
And artistic “success” nearly impossible to chart in a meaningful way.
In all art: Quality is subjective.
Chew on that.
I mean, how in the world are you supposed to know if you did anything worthwhile if everyone has a different opinion about it?
Do not let the sunk cost of it all bias you.
Quality is not an independent force in the universe; it depends on what you choose as your frame of reference.
